Martin McDonagh's film “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” was the big winner at last night's British Academy of Film and Television Awards, winning five awards including Best Film.

Three Billboards also scooped the trophies for Outstanding British Film and Best Original Screenplay for London-Irish writer & director McDonagh, whose mother is from Easkey, Co Sligo and his father is a native of Connemara.

On hearing that Three Billboards had been named Best Film, Martin McDonagh said he felt "overwhelmed"

Actress Frances McDormand took home the BAFTA for Best Lead Actress in Three Billboards, while Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson were both nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for their performances in the film, with Rockwell taking the award on the night.
