BAFTA Awards

BAFTA Awards 2021: The second night of the EE British Academy Film Awards is underway on Sunday. Read on as we explain how to watch British Academy Film Awards 2021 action online tonight.

The second night of the EE British Academy Film Awards is underway on Sunday, following a Saturday showing that revealed the Brit voting body’s picks for crafts prizes and other below-the-line honors. Sunday night’s show is hosted by Edith Bowman and Dermot O’Leary. IndieWire will update this list as night-two winners are announced on the BBC broadcast.

The closing ceremony of the BAFTA awards weekend will see 18 winners announced, including for best film and the performance categories.

The second and final night of the 2021 BAFTA film awards weekend is now underway.

Following Saturday’s ceremony, in which eight awards — primarily across the craft section — were handed out, the Sunday event will see the winners of the 18 remaining statuettes, including all the performance categories and the best film, unveiled.

Like Saturday, the ceremony is being held at the Royal Albert Hall, with nominees joining virtually alongside a virtual audience. But while Saturday was a more intimate affair aimed at taking a closer look at the filmmaking process, Sunday will have a little more pizazz, spread over two hours and featuring performances and guest presenters. Ang Lee will also be presented with the BAFTA Fellowship award, the British Academy’s highest honor.

Among those appearing at the Royal Albert Hall will be Hugh Grant, Felicity Jones, Cynthia Erivo, James McAvoy, Priyanka Chopra Jones, David Oyelowo, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tom Hiddleston, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Richard E. Grant, Pedro Pascal. Jonathan Pryce, Phoebe Dynevor, Sophie Cookson and Asim Chaudhry. Meanwhile, Rose Byrne, Andra Day, Anna Kendrick and Renee Zellweger will be tuning in to present awards from a studio in L.A.

Heading into the awards, Chloe Zhao’s awards season favourite Nomadland, set in the American West, and Rocks, Sarah Gavron’s coming-of-age drama about a group of inner city London schoolgirls, were tied, having claimed seven nominations each, with The Father, Mank, Minari and Promising Young Woman just behind with six.

The nominees, announced in February, were also also hailed as being the most diverse in BAFTA’s history, with 16 of the 24 actors nominated in the performance categories coming from racial or ethnic minority backgrounds, and a record four women shortlisted for best director.
