The Banshees of Inisherin won Outstanding British Film and Best Original Screenplay. The film adaptation of The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse bagged the Best British Short Animation award.
The Academy handed the Award for Best Special Visual Effects to Avatar: The Way of Water.
Meanwhile, Cate Blanchett won Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in Tár, Austin Butler took the Best Actor in a Leading Role award for Elvis, and Emma Mackey won the EE Rising Star Award.
