There was a host of British winners at last night’s Academy Awards with UK talent picking up Oscars across Oppenheimer, Poor Things and The Zone of Interest.

Oppenheimer, the story of the inventor of the  A-bomb, J Robert Oppenheimer, was the biggest winner of the night with seven Oscars, including best film and best director.

Christopher Nolan was of course that best director winner and the Best Picture win had Nolan and producer Emma Thomas accepting the award along with Charles Roven.

Director Jonathan Glazer made history with The Zone of Interest announced as the first UK film to win the best international feature film award. 

The Zone of Interest’s Johnnie Burn was also a winner, gaining the Best Sound Oscar on the night. 

For Poor Things, Shona Heath, along with James Price and Hungarian Zsuzsa Mihalek, was awarded best production design. Holly Waddington won the Best Costume Design Oscar for Poor things and the movie also won the Best Hair and Makeup Oscar with Nadia Stacey, Mark Coulier and Josh Weston awarded.
