BAFTA 2021 Awards And Winners At The Event

The British Academy Film Awards for honoring the best national and foreign films had been held. The event which was the 74th edition of the awards took place over the weekend.

The 2021 event was a two-night celebration and took place virtually. The first night event was hosted by radio and TV presenter, Clara Amfo, with craft-centered awards announced, while the second night virtual ceremony was hosted by Edith Bowman and Dermot O’Leary at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Amfo opened the first night with a tribute to Prince Philip, who died on Friday, 9th April, at the age of 99.

She read: “On behalf of BAFTA, we are extremely saddened by the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, on Friday. The Duke was BAFTA’s very first president over 60 years ago and was the first of a line of royal patronage all the way through to BAFTA’s current president, his grandson, the Duke of Cambridge.

It was Prince Philip and Her Majesty the Queen’s support throughout these years that in many ways allowed BAFTA, a leading charity in the arts, to continue in difficult times and to be here today in 2021. The Duke of Edinburgh occupies a very special place in BAFTA history and he will be missed. Our thoughts are with his family.”

Prince William’s appearance at the event, which was earlier scheduled, was canceled following his grandfather’s death.

The first night also witnessed the performance by BAFTA nominee, Leslie Odom Jr., who sang “Speak Now,” the song he co-wrote for the film One Night in Miami.

The second night hosts were joined by a small group of presenters at the esteemed British stage and concert venue, while others joined virtually from Los Angeles as they handed out the awards, including the public-voted Rising Star award and the BAFTA fellowship.

Movie stars like Priyanka Chopra, Phoebe Dynevor, Cynthia Erivo, Hugh Grant and more were on at the event.
