Frances McDormand Wins Best Actress Award At The 2018 BAFTAs

Frances McDormand has won the best actress prize at the British Academy Film Awards for her performance as a bereaved mother in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

Critics and viewers have called McDormand riveting as a mother seeking justice for her murdered daughter in Martin McDonagh’s tragicomic film.

Unlike most women in attendance, McDormand did not dress all in black in a gesture against sexual harassment. She opted for a red and black dress.
