BAFTAs mixed up Best Supporting Actress winner Kerry Condon with Carey Mulligan

The BAFTAs nearly had a repeat of the Oscar’s infamous La La Land/Moonlight mix-up during today’s ceremony.

The moment happened during the Best Supporting Actress category, when last year’s winner and deaf actor Troy Kotsur was presenting the award. After the clip package of the nominees was played, Carey Mulligan was announced as the winner before the interpreter quickly corrected the record to Kerry Condon.

According to Variety, it was unclear whether the original slip-up had been Kotsur’s or the interpreter’s.

Condon’s name was also displayed on the screen and her co-star Colin Farrell could be seen encouraging Condon to go up onstage, Variety reported.

The first-two thirds of the ceremony was not broadcast live and the mistake was edited out of the broadcast on the BBC. It has also been edited out of the on-demand stream on Britbox in Australia.

Condon won for her performance in Irish black comedy-drama The Banshees of Inisherin, where she played the no-nonsense sister to Farrell’s dimwitted character.

Mulligan was nominated for portraying a New York Times reporter in the true story adaptation She Said, a movie which charted how two journalists broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s multiple sexual assaults.

Condon’s acceptance speech won many fans when after the usual thanks to writer and director Martin McDonagh, her co-stars and her family, she gave a shout-out to her pets.

“I have to thank my horses and my dogs because they show me so much love and give me so much meaning in my life,” she said on stage to rapturous applause.

Condon and co-star Barry Keoghan both picked up supporting acting awards at the BAFTAs even though lead Colin Farrell missed out to American Austin Butler.

The Banshees of Inisherin won four gongs overall, including Best British Film. The Irish film was co-financed by UK’s Channel 4, which made it eligible for the category.

German anti-war epic All Quiet on the Western Front emerged the big winner, picking up seven awards overall including Best Picture and Best Director. It went into the competition with 14 nominations.

Elvis won four awards including Butler’s victory, as well as in three technical categories.

Cate Blanchett won Best Actress for her role in Tar as a narcissistic conductor. She is now frontrunner to win the Best Actress Oscar next month.
