BAFTA Film Awards: Deepika Padukone’s Silver Saree To David Tenant’s Flawless Hosting Check Out The Best Moments


On the star-studded evening of the 77th EE BAFTA Film Awards, the British film industry’s most prestigious event unfolded in a spectacle of splendor and surprise. David Tenant, with his impeccable charm and wit, served as the master of ceremonies, ensuring every moment was laced with laughter. The esteemed gathering was augmented by the presence of luminaries such as David Beckham, Cate Blanchett, and the notable Bollywood icon Deepika Padukone. As the event showcased a blend of underdogs and cinematic giants clinching the coveted trophies, the annual celebration was a true testament to the global impact of storytelling through film. The awards, highlighting the talent and creativity of the past year’s cinematic achievements, became available for viewing on Lionsgate Play on February 19th, 2024, allowing audiences worldwide to relive the enchanting evening.

Deepika Padukone’s appearance at the ceremony sent ripples through the internet as she stepped onto the red carpet. Draped in an elegantly shimmering saree by Sabyasachi, Padukone exuded a regal mixture of Indian cultural heritage and contemporary allure. Presenting the ‘Best Film Not In The English Language’ award, she not only turned heads but also instilled a sense of national pride among her Indian fans.

In a turn of events akin to a cinematic plot twist, ‘Barbie’, a motion picture led by Margot Robbie, faced an unforeseen reversal of fortune. Despite being a precursor with five nominations, it did not manage to secure a single BAFTA, leaving many astonished. This unexpected outcome has been the topic of much discussion, a testament to the unpredictable nature of award ceremonies.

Oppenheimer, on the other hand, came through with explosive success — pun fully intended. Christopher Nolan obtained his First BAFTA for Best Director, an accolade well-earned for his cinematic prowess. Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. were both honored with Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor awards, respectively. The film’s triumph culminated as it snagged the Best Film award, capping off the night in cinematic glory.

Royal attention graced the BAFTAs as Prince William joined the festivities minus his better half, Duchess Kate, stirring up social conversations. The British Royal’s attendance underscored the BAFTAs’ deep-seated roots in promoting and celebrating British artistry and excellence. While the Prince doesn’t cast a vote, the gratification of receiving an award in his presence was undeniably a prestigious moment for the victors.

The infectious humor of David Tenant undoubtedly made a significant imprint on the night. With exemplary poise and panache, the actor ensnared the audience in a gamut of emotions, predominantly joy, as he led the event with a combination of British elegance and rib-tickling comedy.

In what can only be described as a heartening interlude, Michael J Fox graced the evening with his inspiring presence. Despite battling Parkinson’s disease, the revered ‘Back to The Future’ actor commanded respect as he took to the stage, evoking a powerful standing ovation from his peers— a gesture that warmed the hearts of those present and further cemented the night’s legacy of memorable occurrences.

As the curtain fell on the 77th EE BAFTA Film Awards, it was evident that the grandeur of the evening transcended beyond mere accolades; it was a celebration of the universal language of film and the indelible marks it leaves on humanity’s collective consciousness. For those who missed the event or wish to indulge once more in its finest moments, Lionsgate Play presents an exclusive opportunity to watch the awe-inspiring ceremony in all its cinematic magnificence.
