The musical starred Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone shocked everyone receiving 5 BAFTAs. Female lead Emma Stone picked up best actress with the film’s director Damien Chazelle taking the gong for best director.
The star thanked the film’s director and said the world was going through “a bit of a time, just a bit” In a time that’s so divisive, I think it’s so special we were able to come together tonight thanks to BAFTA, to celebrate the positive gift of creativity and how it can transcend borders and how it can help people to feel a little less alone,” she said. As for Emma’s film partner Ryan Gosling, he was one of the favourites in the Best Male nomination, but the award was given to Casey Affleck for his performance in Manchester by the Sea. “My heart is beating,” said the 41-year-old actor who seemed overwhelmed. British actor Dev Patel picked up best supporting actor with Viola Davis taking best supporting actress for her role in Fences. Outstanding British Film went to I, Daniel Blake, the hard-hitting film about the British welfare state.
