The biggest moments from the BAFTAs, including a big upset for Barbie.

Oppenheimer cleaned up in most categories.

Christopher Nolan finally won his first BAFTA award — and the wins didn’t stop. 

Oppenheimer won seven BAFTAs, including the night’s biggest honours for Best Picture, Best Director, Leading Actor and Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr.

Another film that dominated was Yorgos Lanthimos’s Poor Things which picked up five gongs for Leading Actress, Best Costume Design, Best Production Design, Best Makeup and Hair, and Best Visual Effects.

A dark horse proved to be Jonathan Glazer’s The Zone of Interest which took home three awards for Best Sound, Outstanding British Film and Best Film Not In The English Language.

Barbie walked away empty-handed.

Despite copping four nominations, Barbie did not win a single award at the BAFTAs. This included nominations for stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

This doesn’t put Barbie in the best position for the Oscars, which typically reflects the people and films honours by Britain’s equivalent awards ceremony. 

It was also disappointing that Killers of the Flower Moon went home empty-handed with the emotionally-loaded Native American story missing out on all nine of its BAFTA nominations.

There are simply too many sensational movies in the running!!
