It’s almost set in Stone (pun not intended) of who will be raking in the Golden Men at the Oscars later this month, as La La Land continued to dominate internationally at the BAFTAs last night, taking home five films including the top award of the night, Best Film, Leading Actress for Emma Stone, Best Director for Damien Chazelle and Best Cinematography for Linus Sandgren.

Confirming their status as top Oscar contenders, Manchester By The Sea won Best Actor for Casey Affleck, Best Supporting Actor for Dev Patel in Lion, and Best Supporting Actress for Viola Davis in Fences.

Notable British winners include the return to the Wizarding World, with Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them winning Best Production Design, and I, Daniel Blake awarded for Outstanding British film.

The publicly voted for Rising Star Award was awarded to Tom Holland, who made his widely-celebrated debut as Marvel’s new Peter Parker/Spiderman in Captain America: Civil War, and will reprise his role in the spotlight in the highly anticipated Spiderman: Homecoming later this year.
