Roma, The Favourite, win big at the British Academy Film Awards

 

The Favourite won seven trophies, including best British film and best actress for Olivia Colman, who plays Britain's 18th century Queen Anne in the female-centric drama.

Alfonso Cuaron's Roma, which centres on the nanny to a middle-class Mexico City family, took out the prizes for best picture, director, cinematography and foreign-language film.

Cuaron thanked Netflix for backing "a black-and-white film about a domestic worker'' that is not in English.

Liverpool to meet Real Madrid in Champions League final despite loss to Roma

Jurgen Klopp's side headed to the Italian capital with a commanding 5-2 advantage from last week's first leg, where their Serie A opponents snatched faint hopes of a comeback by netting a pair of late away goals.

Still, Roma had no margin for error – certainly not to the magnitude of the woeful blind pass midfielder Radja Nainggolan played in the ninth minute that resulted in Sadio Mane opening the scoring.

An incredibly unfortunate James Milner own goal did not knock Liverpool off their stride, with Georginio Wijnaldum restoring their ample cushion in the 25th minute.
