There were a host of British winners at this weekend’s Oscars with Sir Anthony Hopkins picking up the best actor gong for his role in The Father and Daniel Kaluuya named best supporting actor for his portrayal of Black Panther party leader Fred Hampton in Judas & the Black Messiah.

Hopkins award comes 29 years after his first best actor Oscar for The Silence of the Lambs in 1992. Kaluuya’s award means he is the first Brit person of colour to ever win the category.

Emerald Fennell won the Best original screenplay award for her movie Promising Young Woman. Fennell was also nominated as best director with that award going to Nomadland’s Chloe Zhao.

Sir Christopher Hampton was awarded best adapted screenplay (alongside Florian Zeller) for The Father.
