Winning his first-ever BAFTA, Nolan expressed his thanks to studio Universal, “for letting us take on something dark, and seeing the potential for that” during his acceptance speech.

Poor Things was the other stand-out winner of the ceremony with five wins, including Emma Stone’s award for lead actress.

The Holdovers star Da’Vine Joy Randolph continues to dominate the supporting actress category through this award season cycle. 

Thanking her co-star Paul Giamatti while accepting her BAFTA, Randolph said, “Gosh, I cry every time I say your name. You represent everything that is great and good in our craft.”

The chilling Holocaust drama The Zone of Interest by director Jonathan Glazer took home the prestigious award for outstanding British film, as well as best film not in the English language. 

The Barbie movie, Saltburn, Maestro and the Martin Scorsese-directed epic Killers of the Flower Moon, meanwhile, came away empty on Sunday.

The ceremony also featured appearances by some cinematic legends including Tom Cruise (via video link) and Michael J. Fox, who presented the best film category. 

Prince William also stepped out to attend the ceremony on public duty following the hospitalization of Catherine, Princess of Wales and the cancer diagnosis of his father, King Charles.
