Jazz film La La Land scoops five BAFTAs

John Legend and Ryan Gosling

The star studded event in London was attended by Best Actress Emma Stone

The musical predictably danced off with the most BAFTAs on Sunday night, winning five of the 11 for which it was nominated, including best film and best director for Damien Chazelle, and best original music for composer Justin Hurwitz.

Emma Stone won best actress and while her speech was somewhat muted compared to Meryl Streep's politically-charged Golden Globe speech in which she attacked Trump, the actress gave a nod to the political flavour of the entire awards season.

She said: "The US and the world seems to being going through a bit of a time that is divisive and I'm so glad we can get together in the film industry to... celebrate the positive."
