BAFTA Film Awards 2021 – The Winners

12 April, 2021

This year’s BAFTAs took place on two consecutive nights, Saturday and Sunday, the 10th and the 11th of April, at the Royal Albert Hall. The event was held in the presence of a virtual audience and with the online participation of the nominees and winners. Still, the hosts of the ceremony and most of the award presenters have appeared in person at the London venue, and the event hasn’t been short of special moments and musical performances.

The opening night offered the public a montage of various behind the scenes footage from the nominated films, and the musical interlude was signed by Supporting Actor nominee Leslie Odom Jr., who performed the song Speak Now from the film One Night in Miami… (dir. Regina King).

The second night of the ceremony brought the world-first BAFTA augmented reality music performance, played out by singer Liam Payne, who appeared on stage alongside his AR Avatar. The public could also enjoy some of the songs featured on the nominated films, such as Hear My Voice from The Trial of the Chicago 7 (dir. Aaron Sorkin), performed by Celeste, and A Change is Gonna Come from One Night in Miami… (dir. Regina King), performed by Leslie Odom Jr. and Corinne Bailey Rae.

Romanian documentary Collective by Alexander Nanau has been among the nominees of this year’s BAFTAs.
