Oscar-winning deaf actor Troy Kotsur accidentally presented the supporting actress award to the wrong person after a miscommunication. 

Last year’s recipient, CODA’s Troy Kotsur, took to the stage with his interpreter to present the category using sign language.

However, when the moment aired on TV, it had been edited to remove the blunder, which saw the winner first announced as Carey Mulligan for She Said.

Kotsur’s translator soon made a correction, though, and Kerry Condon was given the award for The Banshees Of Inisherin.

Accepting the trophy, Condon said the whole thing was ‘really surreal.’

‘Thank you Martin (McDonagh) for this part, and thank you for all the parts you gave me throughout my career. You make me so proud to be an Irish woman,’ she said at the podium.

She also thanked the ‘amazing cast’ and her family as well as her horses and dogs.

The Irish actress won the first award of the night for the black-comedy/drama, with co-star Barry Keoghan going on to win best supporting actor.

Speaking about how she was feeling from the Bafta winner’s room, Condon, 40, said: ‘Oh my God, the whole thing was just this blackout weird moment.

‘All I remember is looking and seeing all the boys looking at me like, “Get up!” It was just it was really surreal.’

While she was mid-speech in the winner’s room, the film’s director Martin McDonagh won another award for original screenplay, which caused Condon to get emotional.

Reflecting on why she felt her role of Siobhan resonated with so many, she said: ‘I hope it’s because she was able to be kind to somebody who annoyed her and I think it’s because she was evolved.

‘And I think maybe because she showed a lot of inner strength and a lot of sadness that people experience, and also that a lot of her life is taking care of her brother or taking care of somebody else.

‘And I think a lot of women sacrifice their lives for their children or for their husbands, or whoever.’

Bafta has been contacted for comment.
