The historical period comedy-drama has been a big hit at the awards show, sinching a record-setting 10 of its 13 award nominations including Best Film.

Lead actress Olivia Colman took home the Best Actress award. Her co-star Rachel Weisz was unable to pick up her Best Supporting Actress award in person. The ever-hilarious Colman brought along a cardboard cutout of Weisz’s face when accepting the award on her behalf.
