The 72th ceremony of the British Academy Film Award (BAFTA) in the Royal Albert Hall yesterday revealed its winners. And the great winner of this night is the video platform Netflix with the movie “Roma” by Alfonso Cuaron.

Finally! A Netflix Production movie won a prize in a ceremony of cinema. Under Alfonso Cuaron’s direction “Roma” received two of the most prestigious BAFTAs: the greatest movie and the best film director before the Oscars. Netflix can dream a little more of a reward in the American ceremony.

BAFTA’s best male actor is Rami Malek for his interpretation of Freddy Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody”, already rewarded by a Golden Globe for this role. In the female category, it’s Olivia Colman who won the BAFTA for best female actor for her performance in “The Favourite”.

“A star is born” by Bradley Cooper and “BlackkKansman” by Spike Lee just won the best original music for the first and the greatest original script for the second. A big disillusion for the American blockbusters, nominateded in the best movie category.
