Christopher Nolan won best director, Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. picked up best actor and supporting actor, whilst it also won prizes for editing, cinematography and original score. 

In his speech, Nolan thanked Universal Pictures head Donna Langley for “letting us take on something quite dark and seeing the potential in that”, whilst Murphy in turn praised Nolan for “seeing something in me that I maybe didn’t see myself”.

The event was held tonight (February 18) at London’s Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank, with David Tennant on hosting duties for the first time.

Poor Things and The Zone Of Interest were the other big winners on the night.

Yorgos Lanthimos’ Golden Lion winner saw Emma Stone collect the actress prize, as expected, whilst it also performed well in the technical categories, collecting production design, special visual effects, make-up and hair, and costume design awards.

Stone quipped on stage: “Thank you for the line ‘I must punch that baby’ - it’s been life changing for me.”

The Zone Of Interest won both film not in English language and best British film (along with best sound), an irony not lost on producer James Wilson in his speech.

Da’Vine Joy Randolph

The Holdovers secured two prizes, for casting and supporting actress for Da’Vine Joy Randolph. The latter gave a tearful speech, saying: “This is a movie we made in Boston about three people that came together to form a little family. “[Her character] Mary shows us what is possible when we look beyond our differences.”

The screenplay awards saw Anatomy Of A Fall and American Fiction win their only awards of the night (in original and adapted screenplay, respectively). On stage, Justine Triet recounted how a woman from London told her she called her ex and “told him to watch the film to understand why she dumped him”.

Samantha Morton was awarded the Bafta fellowship award by producer David Heyman, who praised her as “a true artist who has managed to keep her individual voice and spirit”. In her speech, Morton said she was inspired to act by seeing Ken Loach’s Kes, and dedicated her award to “every child in care today, who has been in care and who didn’t survive”.

Film curator June Givanni, collecting the outstanding British contribution to cinema said: “I am proud to be one of the few women of colour to receive this prestigious award”.

Earth Mama won outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer, 20 Days in Mariupol picked up best documentary, and Hayao Miyazaki’s The Boy And The Heron won animated film.

Opening the ceremony, Tennant, hosting for the first time, appeared in an extended skit about looking after Micheal Sheen’s dog.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor performed ‘Murder On The Dance Floor’ following its newfound Saltburn popularity, and Hannah Waddington sung ’Time After Time’ during the in memorium section.

Michael J Fox appeared on stage to present best film, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd.
