All the BAFTA awards winners: Oppenheimer wins big

Seven wins for Oppenheimer, five for Poor Things, but none for Barbie

All the BAFTA awards winners: Oppenheimer wins big

19 February 2024

The BAFTA awards took place over the weekend in London. Let’s take a closer look at this year’s major winners.

It was a big night for Oppenheimer, which took seven awards including best film, best director and best leading actor, for Cillian Murphy.

Poor Things did well too, surprisingly so. It came away with five wins including best actress for Emma Stone and a bunch of more technical categories including production design and visual effects.

It wasn’t a great night for Barbie, though. It won no BAFTAs, despite five nominations in the acting categories, screenplay, production design and costume design.

Maestro also came away empty-handed after seven nominations.

The Zone of Interest had a great night, though, winning the best sound award as well as the best non-English language film and Outstanding British film awards.

Will we see this repeated in the other ceremonies? Last month’s Golden Globes also saw good results for Oppenheimer and Poor Things. But we’ve a while to wait until the Oscars — The Academy Awards take place on Sunday March 10.
