Colman tipped for Bafta success
London: Black historical comedy The Favourite in which actress Olivia Colman stars as Queen Anne is tipped for success Sunday at the British Bafta awards in London. With the pre- Oscar award season in full swing, the critically acclaimed costume comedy about a cantankerous queen and her scheming court will vie for a dozen honours. Colman is tipped for the leading actress gong for her uproarious depiction of the largely forgotten monarch in Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’s 18th century hit. Colman, 45, is up against Glenn Close ( The Wife) and Lady Gaga ( A Star is Born).
