India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 19 Feb 2024, 12:47 pm

Director Christopher Nolan's biopic Oppenheimer dominated the BAFTA awards by winning the title in seven categories.

Actor Cillian Murphy, who perfectly played the character of physicist J Robert Oppenheimer, won the 'Best Actor' award while  Robert Downey Jr grabbed the 'Best Supporting Actor' title for his performance in the movie that was praised by critics and fans across the globe last year.

Christopher Nolan joined the show by winning the 'Best Director' award.

Oppenheimer also beat other nominations like Poor Things to win the prestigious 'Best Film' title.

Apart from Christopher Nolan's biopic, Emma Stone's Poor Things shined in the glitzy award ceremony night with five wins.

Stone clinched the Best Actress award.

She beat actress Margot Robbie (Barbie) among other nominees for the title.

The  Best Supporting Actress award went to actor  Da'Vine Joy Randolph for her performance in The Holdovers.

Greta Gerwig's Barbie and Martin Scorsese's Killers Of The Flower Moon, two movies which gained global attention last year, however, failed to sweep a title in this year's BAFTA.
