10 February 2019

Winner's acceptance speech by Yorgos Lanthimos for The Favourite in the Outstanding British Film category

YORGOS LANTHIMOS:  Hi.  Thank you so much.  Thank you, BAFTA.  It's a great honour.

This film took 20 years to make.  I contributed to the last 10.  

I want to thank the producers for trusting me.  My wonderful crew.  Waypoint, Film4, and Fox Searchlight for bringing it to the world.

And, of course, the three leading ladies that I couldn't be more proud of.  

Thank you very much.
