She explained this further at the post-ceremony press conference, saying that she once took on a fellowship at Cambridge and that 'it felt very snobbish, but not in a bad way'.
She added: 'You have a long history and your pride. Being an Asian woman, I thought “these people are very snobbish”. That’s just what I felt, that’s my honest feeling.'
She opened her acceptance speech by saying, 'I would like to express my condolence for your Duke of Edinburgh,' who died on Friday, aged 99.
The BAFTA win also follows the Korean star's SAG success for best supporting actress.
