The Winners of the 2021 BAFTA Awards

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) have just finished handing out their awards for 2020, with the expected result of "Nomadland" taking the top prize. The film also received Best Director (Chloe Zhao), Best Actress (Frances McDormand), and Best Cinematography.

The only slight surprises were seeing "The Father" take Best Adapted Screenplay (an award that "Nomadland" was expected to receive on its way to the top prize) and Best Actor for Sir Anthony Hopkins (an award that Chadwick Boseman was highly-favored to win).

Other than that, pretty much everything that was expected to win did, leaving us with just one major stop left for this awards season: The Oscars. Can anything stop the bland, forgettable experience that is "Nomadland" from winning Best Picture at this point? Probably not, but we can always hope that The Academy will have a little more sense than other groups have had. The big ceremony takes place on April 25th, so be sure to check back for a complete list of winners.
