BAFTA Awards 2021: Chinese director Chloe Zhao's 'Nomadland' wins big

Apr 12, 2021 09:48 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The winners of the 74th BAFTA Awards are out.

American drama ‘Nomadland’ won four prizes including Best Picture at the British Academy Film Awards, which were handed out during a largely remote and socially distant ceremony. ‘Nomadland’ filmmaker Chloe Zhao became the only second woman, and the first woman of color, to win the BAFTA for best director.

Frances McDormand was named Best Actress for her performance in ‘Nomadland’, while the Best Actor trophy went to Anthony Hopkins for playing a man grappling with dementia in ‘The Father.’ 

Emerald Fennell’s revenge comedy 
‘Promising Young Woman’ was named Best British film.

An emerging star, 19-year-old Bukky Bakray, won the EE Rising Star award, chosen by public vote, for 'Rocks', a coming-of-age drama set in London.
