cience-fiction epic Dune won the first two awards on the night as the Baftas returned to the Royal Albert Hall.

The film, which starred Tomothee Chalamet and Zendaya, picked up the Bafta for special visual effects and cinematography.

The ceremony began with a tribute to the Bond films from Dame Shirley Bassey.

The Welsh star performed her hit Diamonds Are Forever from the hit 1971 film to raise the curtain on the show which also featured a montage from the hit 007 films.

Earlier, famous faces including Lady Gaga, Benedict Cumberbatch and host Rebel Wilson walked the red carpet at the Royal Albert Hall.

Several guests wore Ukrainian colours and badges expressing support for the beleaguered country while Bafta chair Krishnendu Majumdar delivered a message from the Ukrainian Film Academy during his opening speech as the awards return amid a backdrop of conflict.
