The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) presented its annual film awards show on Sunday. Like the Golden Globes in January, the red carpet was dominated by the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment, with many donning black outfits as a symbol of the movement.

One of the biggest winners of the night was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, written and directed by Irish-British filmmaker Martin McDonagh.
