Britain’s biggest night for film saw hundreds of Hollywood stars come and celebrate at the Southbank Centre in the heart of London. 


Oppenheimer was the big winner as it picked up seven awards including Best Film, Best Leading Actor for Cillian Murphy and Best Director for Christopher Nolan. 

Ludwig Göransson bagged Best Score and Robert Downey Jr. joked that he could ‘resurrect’ his ‘dwindling credibility’ with his Best Supporting Actor win. 

Yorgos Lanthimos’ quirky film Poor Things picked up five awards. 

Those included Best Leading Actress for Emma Stone, Best Make up & Hair and Best Special Visual Effects. 

The Zone of Interest, a harrowing Holocaust drama from Jonathan Glazer, won Best Film Not In English Language, Best Sound and Outstanding British Film. 

Mia McKenna-Bruce was voted by the public as this year’s EE Rising Star, following in the footsteps of Emma Mackey, John Boyega and Lashana Lynch. 

Jellyfish and Lobster and Crab Day were the winners of British Short Film and British Short Animation respectively. 

Studio Ghibli’s The Boy and The Heron won Best Animated Film. 

Samantha Morton received the BAFTA Fellowship Award while June Givanni received the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema Award. 

As for the evening itself, a smiley David Tennant brought infectious energy to the proceedings and kicked off the event with a brilliant Staged-esque sketch starring Tom Hiddleston, Dame Judi Dench, Stanley Tucci, Michael Sheen and his dog, Bark Rufallo. 

Tennant’s kilt was particularly well received by fans on social media. 

Michael J. Fox, a Best Documentary nominee, received a standing ovation when he presented the Best Film award. 

The Back to the Future star was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 and has raised awareness ever since. 

Hugh Grant presented the award for Best Director after brilliantly (and dramatically) reciting the Oompa Loompa song: “Oompa Loompa, doopety-dee. Now the Best Director categor-ee. Oompa Loompa doompety-dong. Most of these films were frankly too long.” 

Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Nick Mohammed’s segments broke the night up while the incomparable Hannah Waddingham sang beautifully during the in-memoriam section. 

Barbie, 2023’s highest grossing film, didn’t win in any category but the awards were still rounded out by Tennant saying: “Come on Barbie, let’s go party.” 

All in all, the 2024 EE BAFTA Film Awards was another fantastic evening for creatives and film fans alike.
