BAFTAs: 'Three Billboards' gets Oscar boost

New Delhi [India], Feb 19 (ANI): Martin McDonagh's 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' has emerged victorious in five categories at the 2018 edition of the EE British Academy Film Awards.

Just as Academy Award voters start voting, the movie was named Best Picture at the event. It also won Best British Film and the Best Original Screenplay. Best Leading Actress was Frances McDormand, while Sam Rockwell walked away with the Best Supporting Actor title.

There were also Oscar boosts for 'The Shape Of Water,' with Guillermo Del Toro named Best Director, and for 'Darkest Hour,' with Gary Oldman winning Best Leading Actor for his portrayal of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

However, there was nothing for 'The Post,' starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. The Steven Spielberg-produced movie was nominated for the Golden Globes and Oscars but missed out at the BAFTAs.

The hotly-tipped war movie 'Dunkirk' had eight nominations, but was only successful for Best Sound.
