Oppenheimer was the big winner at the 2024 BAFTA Awards, taking home seven prizes. Cillian Murphy and Christopher Nolan won in the acting and directing categories, while the film also took home Best Film. Other categories that the biopic won include Best Original Score, Best Cinematography, and Best Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr.

Poor Things came a close second at the ceremony, after taking home five wins in Best Costume, Best Make-Up and Hair, Best Production Design, and Best Visual Effects. Emma Stone also won Best Lead Actress for her performance as Bella Baxter.

The Zone of Interest won three awards, including Best British Film and Best Sound. Meanwhile, The Holdovers took home two, including Best Supporting Actress for Da'Vine Joy Randolph. Barbie, Killers of the Flower Moon, and All of Us Strangers won nothing.

The winner list leaves the awards season in an interesting place ahead of the 2024 Oscars in March. At the moment, it seems like Oppenheimer will be the one to beat, with Poor Things and The Holdovers in close pursuit. Read our 2024 Oscar winner predictions.
