Joanna Lumley of “Absolutely Fabulous” hosted the 71st British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Albert Hall tonight, marking the first time a female has hosted the event in 17 years. The night will be dominated by women in the film industry — as they are all coming together dressed in black, ahead of the Time’s Up movement and the signing of an open letter published in The Observer. This year’s BAFTAs shed a new light on LGBTQ filmmaking with “Call Me by Your Name” getting four nods and “God’s Own Country” making a debut in the Outstanding British Film category. See the full list of winners and highlights from the ceremony in the link below.
