Roma – Winners’ Acceptance Speech, Film Not in the English Language, EE British Academy Film Awards in 2019

10 February 2019

Winner's acceptance speech by Alfonso Cuaron for Roma in the Film Not in the English Language category

GABRIELA RODRIGUEZ:  Thank you so much.  Thank you, Alfonso.  You did not make this easy, but it was worth it.  

Thank you, Nico, for this journey.  Thank you to our entire cast, crew, Mexico, the Academy.  

Alfonso, say something, please.  

ALFONSO CUARON:  Well, it's an amazing honour, BAFTA, thank you very much.  

Foreign is just a different colour, and colour complements each other.  I'm very happy that BAFTA is honouring the story of a woman who is a domestic worker from indigenous background.  

The specific colour of this film is Mexico, so I want to thank also Mexico, and my family, and my kids.

Thank you very much.
