Winner Barkhad Abdi and presenter Emma Thompson at the 2014 BAFTAs

We've rounded up a number of the rousing BAFTA acceptance speech videos, including Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Helen Mirren, Steve McQueen, Alfonso Cuaron and Barkhad Abdi. Check it all out, below.

Cate Blanchett

The night held a number of moving moments, from Blanchett's dedication of her award to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman; to Ejiofor's win, which was a popular decision among his fellow nominated leading men Leonardo DiCaprio (who gamely blew a kiss to the camera), Christian Bale and Tom Hanks; to Abdi's win, which was met with enthusiastic applause from his "Captain Phillips" castmate Hanks and wife Rita Wilson (and was clearly a moment of happiness for award presenter Emma Thompson); to Mirren's acceptance of the BAFTA Fellowship, presented to her by none other than Prince William (who joked that he should call Mirren "Granny").

The full list of BAFTA winners, with analysis, is here.
