“La La Land” shined brightly at the 70th BAFTA Awards, winning in five categories at the biggest film awards show outside the U.S. a couple of weeks before the Academy Awards.

“La La Land” went into the BAFTAs with the most nominations (11) and ended the night with wins for best film, director (Damien Chazelle), leading actress (Emma Stone), cinematography and original music, keeping the musical’s momentum ahead of the Oscars on Feb. 26.

Other winners Sunday included Casey Affleck as lead actor in “Manchester by the Sea,” as well as Viola Davis (“Fences”) and Dev Patel (“Lion”) for their supporting performances. Ken Loache’s “I, Daniel Blake” took home the award for outstanding British film. And the EE Rising Star BAFTA Award, the only award voted on by the public, went to Tom Holland (“Captain America: Civil War,” “The Impossible”).

The ceremony was held at London’s Royal Albert Hall and featured the return of English comedian and actor Stephen Fry as host for a 12th time.
