Baftas 2017: La La Land leads the 2017 winners' list

Leading lady Emma Stone scoops best actress at London ceremony, but musical fails to live up to expectations

Hollywood musical La La Land led the field at last night's Baftas at the Royal Albert Hall in London but fell short of expectations.

It picked up five awards: best film; best director for Damien Chazelle; best actress for Emma Stone; best original music, and best cinematography. However, it failed to take predicted wins for original screenplay, costume design, sound, production design and editing.

Casey Affleck (below) was named best actor for Manchester by the Sea, which also picked up the best original screenplay award for Kenneth Lonergan.
