As the result was announced and the 35-year-old stood up from her seat to an eruption of applause at the Royal Festival Hall in London's Southbank Centre, she accidentally bumped into the cameraman.

It came as producers tried to capture all the action from the venue.

She could then be seen gesturing awkwardly at the camera before heading to the stage to accept her award.

Accepting the award, Emma said: "This is really a huge honour and since we're in London, I'm going to start by thanking our dialect coach."


She continued: "I really just wanna thank my mom, because she is best the person I know in the whole world.

"She always inspires me every single day and has always made me believe this kind of crazy idea that I could do something like this."

This year's star-studded event saw a total of 38 films up for awards hosted by David Tennant.

SHOWBIZ expert Amanda Devlin gives her take on the Bafta results...

It was a top night for Christopher Nolan's epic biopic Oppenheimer.

The film scooped seven awards out of 13 nominations as it dominated the ceremony.

Nolan won Best Director for the first time in his career - and earned a standing ovation from the audience.

Leading actor winner Cillian Murphy received rapturous applause as his name was announced.

Oppenheimer's success was closely followed by Poor Things, which took home five gongs including Emma Stone's win as Leading Actress.

She beat Margot Robbie to the award, meaning Barbie left empty-handed after being snubbed by Bafta.

Her co-star Ryan Gosling also missed out on Supporting Actor - and struggled to understand a Coronation Street-related joke made by host David Tennant.

The Zone of Interest won Outstanding British Film and Film Not in English.

Meanwhile Oompa Loompa actor Hugh Grant took a cheeky swipe at the Bafta nominees about their films being "too long" in a Willy Wonka gag.

Back to the Future legendary actor Michael J Fox had everyone up on their feet as he came on stage in a wheelchair to present Best Film.

The star - who has Parkinson's - was cheered as he took the final steps to the podium to announce Oppenheimer's success. 

Leading the pack with 13 nominations was Christopher Nolan's epic biopic about atomic bomb creator J Robert Oppenheimer.

Cillian Murphy was awarded Leading Actor as Oppenheimer was the evening's biggest winner, scooping a total of seven awards.

Eurovision star Hannah Waddingham had brought viewers to tears as she performed a special tribute during the show.
