After winning the Best Actress in a Leading Role gong, the star declared: "This is very overwhelming. My voice is also a little gone, whatever!"

After thanking her fellow nominees, the star said of her Poor Things crew: "It's not about me, it's about a team that came together to make something greater than the sum of its parts."

Sharing her gratitude to "every crew member" and all those involved in the production, Stone added: "Thank you for the gift of a lifetime in the role of Bella Baxter."

The big winner of the night was Oppenheimer, which won seven gongs including Best Picture, Best Director for Christopher Nolan and Best Lead Actor for Cillian Murphy.

Eddington is yet to confirm a cinema release date.
