Yorgos Lanthimos's "The Favourite" registered early wins at the 2019 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards, scooping away the Outstanding British Film, production design, make-up and hair honours, besides bagging the Best Supporting Actress trophy for Rachel Weisz.
The film then scored its second win in the production design category.
Among other early winners included "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" (Animated Film), "Free Solo" (Best Documentary), "Bohemian Rhapsody" (Sound), "Vice" (Editing), "A Star Is Born" (Best Original Music) and "BlacKkKlansman" (Best Adapted Screenplay).
"I want to thank everybody who gave me a chance," said Wright.
Saying she had previously considered giving up acting but that her faith had helped her through, she encouraged "anybody that is going through a tough time" to know that "God made you and loves you. Let your light shine".
"Thank goodness BAFTA actually has a host. But I suspect that may h ave something do to with the fact I'm not on Twitter," said Lumley, taking a dig at how a series of old homophobic tweets resulted in comedian Kevin Hart to step down as host of the 2019 Oscars.
