The 2024 BAFTA awards took place three weeks before the Oscars. The big winners on the night were Oppenheimer, Poor Things and The Zone Of Interest.

The awards were watched by three million people nationally on BBC One on average, and 3.8 million people at its peak, the highest viewing figures since 2020. The org said today that on the night, there were also 20.6m video views of ceremony highlights on BAFTA’s social media platforms.

Voting takes place over three rounds: longlisting, nominations and winners, by the academy’s global voting film membership – comprising 7,800 industry creatives.
