"A social media prankster was removed by security last night after joining the winners of the final award on stage - we are taking this very seriously, and don’t wish to grant him any publicity by commenting further," an official from the BATAs said in a statement published by Deadline.

Presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), the 77th edition of the awards saw Nolan's film winning in top categories including best director, actor and supporting actor.

The gatecrash moment shows an individual, who had no connection with the film, climb along and stand behind the film's team.

The identity of the individual is not known but media reports say he was an Youtuber who got on the stage at the Royal Festival Hall, London, as part of a prank.
