A night of celebration ended with the usual flurry of high-profile departures following the star-studded 76th annual BAFTA Awards on Sunday evening. 

And if there was an accolade for best dressed, Jourdan Dunn would’ve been in the running as she made an exit from private members club Annabel’s following the ceremony’s obligatory after-party. 

Opting for a striking sheer dress, Jourdan attracted plenty of attention while greeting onlookers after making her way out of the upmarket Mayfair venue, where an A-list guest list had converged for a late night celebration.

Serving to accentuate her athletic physique, the bold evening-wear proved to be something of a high point as she sparked a string of celebrity departures.  

The British model, 32, was soon followed by actress Florence Pugh and retired tennis legend Serena Williams as she searched for her car before making the journey home.

Following close behind, Serena, 41, opted for comfort over style by ditching her heels in favour of a pair of comfortable white leather trainers. 

Dressed in an appropriately glamorous red velvet dress, the tennis ace was seen adjusting her hemline as she made her way across the pavement before climbing into a waiting car. 

Elsewhere Florence, 27, had evidently planned ahead by trading her dramatic red carpet gown for a playful pink party dress that fully exposed her legs. 

The actress added to her look with a pair of strappy silver heels, while a matching handbag rounded off the ensemble as she prepared for the journey home.

Other guests to attend the Annabel’s party included Lily Allen, Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily James, who was seen leaving on the arm of fellow actress Billie Piper. 

Lily’s former boyfriend Matt Smith was also present, albeit in the company of close friend James Cook. 

Across town, Cooke’s ex-wife Poppy Delevingne caught the eye as she attended a second post-BAFTA Awards party at Marylebone venue Chiltern Firehouse.  

Austin Butler was awarded Best Actor at the 2023 EE British Academy Film Awards on Sunday, beating out favourite Colin Farrell in a shock upset.

The actor fought back tears as he paid tribute to the Presley family while accepting the honour, after portraying the late King Of Rock in the Baz Lurhmann biopic.

Netflix’s German war epic All Quiet On The Western Front was the big winner of the night with a total of seven gongs, including Best Film, while The Banshees of Inisherin was close behind with five, including Best British Film and Best Supporting Actor and Actress.

Cate Blanchett was also awarded Best Leading Actress for her performance in the biopic Tar, the film’s only big win of the night.

Thanking all of the crew and team he worked with on the film, Austin admitted he was ‘just trying to take it all in,’ as he fought back tears while accepting the honour.

‘This means the world to me,’ Butler told the ceremony, still using the Elvis drawl that he learned for Baz Luhrmann’s movie.

He also honoured the Presley family who offered insight into Elvis’ life for the biopic, adding he ‘hopes he made them proud.’

Following his win, Austin also paid tribute to Lisa Marie Presley, following her tragic death last month.

Speaking in the winners room he said: ‘It’s been a really unimaginably tragic time, you know, and grief is a long process. And so my heart and my love was with [the Presley family] always. I feel honoured to have been welcomed into the family. It’s a bittersweet time.’

Cate Blanchett was awarded Best Leading Actress for the fourth time for her performance as a conductor in the psychological film Tar.

Tearfully, she accepted the gong as she thanked her mother and director Todd Field, adding that 2022 had been an ‘extraordinary year for women’.

She added that it had broken down that women’s experience is not ‘monolithic’, and that her role as Lydia Tar ‘was a dangerous and career-ending potential undertaking’.

The final award of the night, Best Film, went to All Quiet On The Western Front, taking its final total for the night to seven awards.

Cinematographer James Friend said the message that young people can be ‘poisoned by right-wing nationalistic propaganda’ and ‘war is more than an adventure’ was as relevant now as more than 100 years ago when the book of the same name was published.

He thanked Felix Kammerer, an Austrian actor who made his film debut in the war film, Netflix for making it possible and Bafta for honouring them with this prize.

The ceremony was hosted by actor Richard E Grant and presenter Alison Hammond, following a star-studded red carpet featuring guests Florence Pugh, Lily James and Jodie Turner-Smith.

As the ceremony got underway, Carey Mulligan was incorrectly announced as the winner of the Supporting Actress award after a translation gaffe while deaf actor Troy Kotsur was presenting.

Oscar-winner Kotsur was delivering the announcement by sign language before a miscommunication resulted in Mulligan’s name being called for her performance in She Said.

The announcer quickly corrected the call and announced The Banshees Of Inisherin star Kerry Condon as the winner.

Taking to the stage, Condon paid tribute to director Martin McDonagh, adding: ‘Thank you for all the parts you gave me throughout my career. You make me so proud to be an Irish woman,’ before thanking the ‘amazing cast’ and her family as well as her horses and dogs.

Even host Richard E Grant joked later that he had a defibrillator for Mulligan.

The mistake did feature in the final broadcast on BBC One, which aired slightly behind the ceremony.

Helen Mirren also remembered the Queen as the ‘nation’s leading star’ as she lead a special tribute to the late monarch.

The veteran actress has portrayed the monarch on stage and screen, winning an Oscar and Bafta for her depiction in 2006’s biographical drama The Queen.

The late Queen had a close association with the Academy spanning 50 years which saw her donate to and support initiatives, as well as attend many events.

Taking to the stage, Dame Helen said: ‘BAFTA’s relationship with Her Majesty was longstanding and Bafta would not be what it is today without her loyal support.

‘In 1953, her coronation broadcast had the world watching. From that time, she was unquestionably the nation’s leading lady but as mysterious as a silent film star.

‘Who else could meet the world’s most famous singers, actors and performers and turn them into her supporting cast.

‘Throughout her 70-year reign, she met cinema’s greatest icons and witnessed the evolution of Hollywood’s golden age to the birth of the blockbuster. Her Majesty was front row for it all.’ 

‘Throughout her 70-year reign, she met cinema’s greatest icons and witnessed the evolution of Hollywood’s golden age to the birth of the blockbuster. Her Majesty was front row for it all.’

The actress also referenced the more than 50 cultural organisations the late monarch supported during her lifetime and the honorary BAFTA award she received in 2013 in recognition for her ‘outstanding patronage of the film and television industries’.

Helen continued: ‘Cinema at its best, does what Her Majesty did effortlessly – bring us together and unite us in a story. Your Majesty, you are our nation’s leading star. On behalf of Bafta, thank you for all that you have done for our film and television industry.’

Speaking to Alison after the tribute, Helen said: ‘It was tough, I didn’t want to cry. I cried a bit when I rehearsed it and I thought, ‘Good, I got that over and done with’, because I wouldn’t want to. But I did feel very strongly about the Queen, I’m Elizabethan. She was there for my whole life so her passing was massive.’

Barry Keoghan won Supporting Actor for The Banshees Of Inisherin, and the Irish actor said he ‘should have planned this, really’ before thanking his co-stars and Ireland.

Reflecting on what it means to receive the award for a film which is so close to home, Keoghan said in the winner’s room: ‘It encourages the arts at home and we are an island of storytelling and great actors and poets and writers.

The coveted BAFTA Rising Star award, the only prize voted for by the public, was won by Emma Mackey.

The actress – who got her breakthrough role as Maeve Wiley in Netflix hit Sex Education but has since starred as late writer Emily Bronte in Emily – was nominated alongside ‘Naomi Ackie, Sheila Atim, Daryl McCormack and Sex Education co-star Aimee Lou Wood.

Emma appeared to be nervous when her name was called out as the winner as she kissed her boyfriend Dan Whitlam and rushed up to the stage to accept the honour.

She said: ‘Hi! I didn’t prepare anything! Thank you BAFTA, thank you to EE, thank you to everyone who voted. Sheila, Naomi, and Daryl.’

The Death on the Nile actress went on to add that it was ‘such an honour’ to have been nominated alongside the likes of the ‘Good Luck to You, Leo Grande’ actor and joked that she would ‘do all the classics’ as she thanked her parents, friends and agents for all of their support throughout her career.

She added: ‘I’m so proud to have been nominated alongside you, this is such an honour. Thank you to my agents, thank you to my family, thank you to all of my friends my mum, and dad. I’ll do the classics but you know, that’s how it is!’

Patrick Stewart presented Outstanding British Film to The Banshees Of Inisherin, and Director and writer Martin said: ‘I know every Irish person in the cast and crew are going ‘best what?”

He also thanked the stand-in donkey, who he said is British and never made it on screen because she was ‘too tubby’, as well as thanking the cast and crew.

Angela Bassett and Rami Malek presented Director to All Quiet On The Western Front’s Edward Berger, giving the Netflix war film its sixth win of the night.

This year there was a subtle geographical shift, with the event – a celebration of the very best national and foreign films of 2022 – moving from the Royal Albert Hall for the first time in its storied history.

Instead, the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall played host to the prestigious ceremony as part of a new partnership between BAFTA and the Westminster venue.

The move also aligned BAFTA film with its sister ceremonies, the British Academy Television Awards and British Academy Game Awards, as both are currently held at the same central London address.

Also, for the first time, the last 30 minutes of the show were broadcast live on BBC One, as BAFTA moves toward the idea of a fully live ceremony.
