On Sunday the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards 2016 paid tribute to the talent in the industry but also to someone who made powerful impact on it: David Bowie.
Bowie's soundtrack "Heroes" played during the Year in Film montage but it wasn't just the memoriam section of the ceremony that honoured the late singer.
Host Stephen Fry also made a touching speech.
"Wonderful, not least of course the musical accompaniment from the creative genius that was the magical and deeply missed David Bowie," Fry stated.
Adding, "Film benefited from his unique gifts as an actor, producer and musician. The world is a far more monochrome place without his colour and vitality."
Fry's words resonated with many viewers at home, who took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and many were moved to tears.
It wasn't just Bowie who was remembered fondly during the ceremony but also Alan Rickman, Wes Craven, Sir Christopher Lee, James Horner and the late film critic Philip French.
I have to say the mention of Alan Rickman, David Bowie, and Sir Christopher Lee at @BAFTA made me tear up a little.— Marzipan (@mars_tuck) February 15, 2016
Always get a lump in my throat when @BAFTA does its tribute to those who have been taken from us. Alan Rickman, David Bowie, Christopher Lee— Tracy (@PrehistoricCat) February 14, 2016
Some fans felt the the Baftas were worth watching just because of the tribute.
For me the music of David Bowie at the #BAFTA 's makes me have to watch it. Great tribute for such a talent lost.— Jackie (@jd1davies) February 14, 2016
While others are still struggling to process the loss of such an inspirational man.
Just saw the David Bowie section of the tribute video on the BAFTA's and I'm crying my eyes out. Holy crap I just can't believe he's gone— Absolute Beginner (@molliec3macca) February 14, 2016
The reaction to the tribute is further proof of the profound effect that Bowie's life and creativity had on the world and that he was an artist who will be sorely missed.
