2021 BAFTA Awards winners list: All 25 categories (2022)

The British Academy Film Awards were presented on April 10 and April 11 by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). So who prevailed? Scroll down for the complete 2021 BAFTA winners list in all 25 categories.

BAFTA is an independent arts charity that comprises thousands of industry insiders, not unlike the American motion picture academy, so these awards could give us a preview of what the Oscars might do on April 25. And since voting for Oscars starts on April 15, just a few days after the BAFTAs, these awards could be doubly influential.

However, the BAFTAs amended their nominations voting this year. After the initial longlists were decided, the nominees for acting and directing were chosen by small juries, leveling the playing field between the highest-profile awards contenders and worthy underdogs. As a result, the two most nominated films are Oscar front-runner “Nomadland” and the more under-the-radar British drama “Rocks,” which have seven nominations apiece. And several top Oscar contenders like Carey Mulligan (“Promising Young Woman”), Viola Davis (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”), and Olivia Colman (“The Father”) were snubbed.

Among its seven bids, “Nomadland” is up for Best Picture, though. The BAFTAs nominated it alongside “The Father,” “The Mauritanian,” “Promising Young Woman” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” The Best Picture race was the only BAFTA category voted on by the entire academy membership, so it might give us the clearest indicator of what the rest of the industry thinks of these films. However, it’s been seven years since the British academy has agreed with the American academy on Best Picture: the two awards haven’t lined up since “12 Years a Slave” (2013). Will they finally match again? See the complete list of winners below, updated as they’re announced.
