With pandemic restrictions in mind, BAFTA made the smart decision to split its 2020/21 awards into two nights and two televized ceremonies. A far better format than their usual, which records the award winners pre-broadcast and relegates several winners to a montage at the show's end. Eight of the 25 competitive BAFTAs were handed out today, alas to recipients not physically present, but does that make this the worst awards ceremony of this bizarre, blighted season? No, but the tribute to the recently departed crusty old husk of bigotry, Prince Philip, certainly did. And, somewhat ignominiously, they've decided to dump their Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award into this first batch of prizes, though it does go to Noel Clarke... Check out this year's BAFTA nominees here, and return for the remaining award winners tomorrow.
