At the 2021 BAFTA TV Awards, Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You walked away the big winner of the evening with five awards, including best mini-series. The proud Ghanian-Brit also claimed best leading actress for her role as a writer healing from a sexual assault.

But Coel wasn’t the only one who made a splash at the hybrid ceremony at London’s Television Centre Sunday night. Her fellow I May Destroy You costars, including Paapa Essiedu and Weruche Opia, were on hand to support their fearless leader, who also nabbed a best director: fiction award along with Sam Miller.
