Austin Butler’s heartfelt tribute to Lisa Marie

Austin Butler is still mourning for the late Lisa Marie Presley, despite his most recent award-season triumph.

Butler, 31, said his victory for best actor in Elvis at the 2023 BAFTA Awards was a “bittersweet moment” following Lisa Marie’s unexpected death in January at 54.

After winning, Butler told reporters in the press room, “It’s been a truly unimaginably painful period, you know, and mourning is a protracted process,” according to Variety. “As a result, the Presleys were always in my heart.”
