Michael J. Fox surprised audiences at the BAFTAs by presenting the best film award.

Appearing onstage in a wheelchair, the 62-year-old actor rose to stand at the podium to announce Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” the winner before he received a standing ovation.

Fox’s public appearances are rare due to his Parkinson’s disease, making this occasion even more poignant as he highlighted the transformative power of cinema, describing it as “magic” capable of changing lives.

The documentary “Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie” was nominated for a BAFTA, but lost to “20 Days In Mariupol.”
