Martin McDonagh’s ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Wins 5 BAFTAs
19 Feb 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Following on from their Golden Globe success Martin McDonagh’s ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ picked up five BAFTA Awards at last night’s ceremony in London.

Having been nominated for nine BAFTAs, Martin McDonagh’s ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri’ took home five awards on the night winning Best Film, Best Outstanding British Film, Best Original Screenplay, and two awards for the leading cast Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell who picked up wins for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor.

This was Martin McDonagh’s second BAFTA win having previously picked up an award for Best Original Screenplay (‘In Bruges’, 2008). McDonagh was also nominated for Best Director, which was scooped by Guillermo del Toro for ‘Shape of Water’.

Saoirse Ronan disappointedly missed out on the opportunity to register her first BAFTA win in the Best Actress category for her performance in Greta Gerwig’s ‘Lady Bird’. The 23 year old has previously been nominated for her roles in ‘Atonement’ (2007), ‘The Lovely Bones’ (2009) and ‘Brooklyn’ (2015).

Irish producer Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly, who picked up two nominations for her work on British made ‘Lady MacBeth’ also missed out on her first BAFTA award. O’Reilly had been nominated in the ‘Outstanding British Film’ and ‘Outstanding debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer’ alongside fellow crewmembers - writer Alice Birch and director William Oldroyd.

Both Short producer Patrick Campbell (‘A Drowning Man’) and writer John Fitzpatrick (‘Wren Boys’) missed out on a BAFTA having been nominated for Best British Short Film at this year’s awards.

Gary Oldman beat Irish Resident Daniel Day-Lewis to the Best Actor award, in a category that included Daniel Kaluuya, Jamie Bell, and Timothée Chalamet.
