Kenneth Cranham beat competition from the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance to be named best actor for "The Father", in which he portrays a man with dementia.

In a category including nominees Nicole Kidman and Gemma Arterton, Denise Gough won best actress for "People, Places And Things", a rehab drama in which she plays an addict.

In her acceptance speech, Gough lamented the lack of diversity among nominees - an issue that overshadowed February's Oscars.
