The World War One drama, 1917, won the Best Picture (Drama) Award and Best Director for Sam Mendes.

Mendes dedicated his Best Director award to his grandfather, Alfred Hubert Mendes, whose stores of the war inspired the movie.

Joaquin Phoenix took home the award for Best Actor for his role in Joker. While the unnerving movie also won a gong for Best Score, by composer Hildur Guðnadóttir.
