The first award of the night went to Outstanding British Film.
Unsurprisingly, 1917 triumphed, beating out the Elton John biopic Rocket Man and Netflix drama The Two Popes.
Sam Mendes’ powerful Wolrd War I drama is already the hot favourite for the Best Film at the Oscars. It has also been a major box office smash on both sides of the Atlantic, banking $ 250million so far.
Supporting Actor was another victory for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood’s Brad Pitt on his march towards his first Oscar. His co-star Margot Robbie collected the award on his behalf.
Reading out his speech, it opened with a Brexit joke: “Hey Britain, heard you just became single. Welcome to the club!” And then ended with a joke about the current royal crisis saying he is going to call the award Harry “because he is really excited to bring it back to the States with him”.
