Robert Downey Jr and Da’Vine Joy Randolph have won the Supporting Actor and Actress awards at the BAFTAs.

The pair triumphed in their categories, despite stiff competition and were presented with their awards at the 77th BAFTAs at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday (18.02.24).

Downey Jr won his award for 'Oppenheimer' and was victorious over nominees Robert De Niro for 'Killers of the Flower Moon', Jacob Elordi for 'Saltburn', Ryan Gosling for 'Barbie', Paul Mescal for 'All of Us Strangers' and Dominic Sessa for 'The Holdovers'.

Downey's award comes 31 years after his previous BAFTA, for the 1993 film 'Chaplin'.

Da'Vine Joy Randolph won Supporting Actress for 'The Holdovers', in an equally competitive category.

She was victorious over Emily Blunt for 'Oppenheimer', Danielle Brooks for 'The Color Purple', Claire Foy for 'All of Us Strangers', Sandra Huller for 'The Zone of Interest' and Rosamund Pike for 'Saltburn'.

Meanwhile, David Tennant hosted the awards for the first time, taking over from last year's duo of Alison Hammond and Richard E. Grant.

He opened the 77th British academy film awards with a 'Barbie' reference, joking that the ceremony would "go smoother than Ken's chest".

Addressing the star-studded audience, he added: "Look at you in your tuxedos and fancy dresses, like the opening scenes of 'Saltburn'. Let's hope it doesn't end up like the closing scenes of 'Saltburn'."

He went on: "Judging these awards is like picking a favourite child - difficult, not impossible, but difficult."

And, David even managed to poke fun at the upcoming US presidential election, where current President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are expected to go head-to-head.

Referring to Emma Stone's surreal comedy 'Poor Things', he said that the film is about a reanimated woman with a child’s brain and joked: "one of them may even be elected president".
