At UK film awards, stars say Time's Up on sexual harassment

Sam Rockwell, who won Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of a dumb, racist cop in THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING MISSOURI, described himself as a journeyman actor and dedicated the award to his friend, Alan Rickman. Gary Oldman's turn as Churchill in Darkest Hour won him a Golden Globe and an Oscar nod, and has also made him a front-runner for a BAFTA.

Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya and Call Me By Your Name's Timothee Chalamet are nominated for both best leading actor and EE's Rising Star Award.

"Darkest Hour" has also been nominated in the best film and outstanding British film categories, while Kristin Scott Thomas is up for supporting actress for her role as Churchill's wife Clementine.

However, there was disappointment for Saoirse Ronan who missed out on the Best Actress gong. You might have seen #MeToo.

Joanna Lumley will host the awards.

This week Britain's movie academy, industry unions and bodies announced new measures to tackle bullying and harassment, including better procedures for reporting and investigating abuse, a commitment to act against bullies and abusers, and a confidential support line.

It is not yet clear whether the Duchess of Cambridge will follow suit, however, when she attends with her husband Prince William, president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta).
