“The Favourite”‘s name rings true at the 2018 British Independent Film Awards.
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.
“The Favourite” earned a total of five awards on Sunday night after winning an additional five craft awards earlier.
