Winner's acceptance speech by Rachel Weisz for The Favourite in the Supporting Actress category

RACHEL WEISZ:  Thank you, Mary.  Thank you, Ellen.  Thank you.

Thank you to BAFTA for this huge honour.  I had the greatest luck in that I played opposite two of the most glorious women, Olivia Colman and Emma Stone.  Yes.  I salute you.  Didn't we have an extraordinary time?  Hats off, ladies.

I want to thank Yorgos Lanthimos, our director.  Yorgos, your creativity is breathtaking.

I want to thank the army of people that got this film made, including all of the producers, everyone that stood by these three women and their story and got this film made.  So thank you very much.  

Thank you, BAFTA.  Thank you.
