The EE British Academy Film Awards were held at Royal Albert Hall in London Sunday night, and – as expected – it was a big night for 1917. Sam Mendes’ acclaimed WWI thriller, which is directed and shot to produce the illusion of a single take, was the leading horse going into the night with a total of nine nominations, and managed to win seven of those: Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director for Mendes, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound, Best Production Design, and Best Cinematography for the legendary Roger Deakins. Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite won Best Film Not In the English Language as expected, but also Best Original Screenplay for Joon-ho and co-writer Han Jin-won over the heavily favored Quentin Tarantino.

Joker was another big winner on the night, taking out not just Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix – at this point if you’re betting against him on Oscar night you must seriously dislike money – but also winning for Best Original Music for Hildur Guđnadóttir’s score and for Best Casting, the first time that awards has been given out. Among the other acting categories, things went as planned: Renée Zellweger, Laura Dern, and Brad Pitt all took home awards. Perhaps the biggest upset of the night, and one which might shake those feeling smug about their Oscar picks, came in the animated category, where Toy Story 4 lost out to Netflix’s holiday film, Klaus.
