The Favourite, the period drama movie shot partly in Kent, dominated this year's Baftas taking home seven awards.
Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the film was the stand-out success of the ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall last night, after being nominated in 12 categories.
Perhaps most popular was Olivia Colman, who won best actress for her performance as Queen Anne.
Her co-star Rachel Weisz won best supporting actress for her part as the queen’s confidante Lady Sarah Churchill.
The period drama, which was partially filmed at the National Trust property Knole park in Sevenoaks, also picked up gongs for best British film, costume design, original screenplay, make-up and hair and production design.
Set in the early 18th century, it follows the troubles of Queen Anne, who occupies the throne.
Yet due to ill health and her mercurial temper, the country is governed by her close friend Lady Sarah.
The film sees Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone play rivals for her majesty’s attention.
The movie, which has a predominantly British cast, has been described as a rollicking comedy and brilliantly bawdy.
It also has multiple nominations at the Oscars later this month.
