However, the Babylon star was at least nominated for a BAFTA, unlike being completely ignored for an Academy Award for Best Actress. The big night was filled with some of the most talented actors in Hollywood in stunning outfits. While Robbie donned a custom pink and black strapless gown with matching gloves and heels, Stone lit the red carpet in an orange gown with one puff sleeve.

While accepting her award, Emma Stone thanked everyone who contributed to the success of Poor Things and said (via Variety):

“I was playing a British person in this movie and [Neil] did not laugh at me when he taught me how to say ‘wart-ter,’ even though as an American I say ‘wahter,’… So thank you England for accepting me.”

Along with Emma Stone’s win, Emily Blunt was honored with Best Supporting Actress for Oppenheimer. The film swept a total of seven awards at the 77th British Academy Film Awards. The event was hosted by David Tennant, known for playing Crowley in Good Omens.
