There were also other hilarious moments to remember, from celebs stumbling into cameramen and a memorable wink from Ken aka Ryan Gosling. Here is a round up of our favourite viral moments from the BAFTAs 2024:

Cillian Murphy’s ‘rebel song’

Cillian Murphy secured the coveted title of Best Actor at the BAFTAs for his compelling portrayal of the eponymous father of the atomic bomb in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer.’

He made a poignant acceptance speech on stage, where he thanked his ‘best friends’, his wife Yvonne and his two children, but it was a moment at the press conference later that had everyone in stitches.

He said: ‘I’m a proud Irishman, I have to say that! Of course I am. It means a lot to me to be Irish. I don’t know what else to say… shall I sing a rebel song?’ he joked, sending himself and the room of journalists into fits of laughter.

Emma Stone’s awkward camera angle

There was a very awkward moment for Emma Stone when she stepped up to collect her award for Best Actress, which she won for her role as Bella Baxter in the sci-fi comedy Poor Things.

However, as she jumped up out of her seat when her name was called as the winner, the actress bumped into the cameraman – making for a very unflattering camera angle.

Emma obviously saw the funny side as her wide-eyed expression face was caught on camera and she continued on her way up to the stage to collect her prize.

Ryan Gosling’s wink

Ryan Gosling may not have won in his category for Best Supporting Actor as Ken in Barbie, but he did give us a viral moment to remember.

Viewers watching at home noticed Ryan give Emma Stone a cheeky wink as she went up to collect her award for Best Actress during the BAFTAs ceremony.
