BAFTA Film Awards Day 1: ‘Rocks’, ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ Win First Prizes – Follow Live

The unconventional 2021 BAFTAs are underway, with the primary Brit film awards being handed out across two evenings this year. Today, the craft categories will be recognized, while Noel Clarke will be picking up the Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema prize. A total of nine prizes will be handed out tonight, primarily in the craft categories. Scroll down for winners so far and refresh this page for updates as they come in.

Clara Amfo is hosting Saturday eve live from the Albert Hall, nominees are tuning in remotely. The ceremony is running one hour later than originally scheduled, live on BBC Two in the UK. Amfo opened proceedings by paying tribute on behalf of BAFTA to the late Prince Philip, who died yesterday at the age of 99. The Duke of Edinburgh was BAFTA’s first president 60 years ago, beginning a line of Royal patronage which continues with his son Prince William, who had been scheduled to make an appearance during the awards tonight and tomorrow but has pulled out after yesterday’s news.

Rocks was the first winner on the night, with Lucy Pardee scooping the Casting BAFTA. The UK indie movie is up for a leading seven BAFTAs tonight, joint most with Nomadland. Costume Design went to Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom‘s Ann Roth, marking Netflix’s first BAFTA of the year.

We’ll be back tomorrow evening from 8PM BST (12PM PST) for live coverage of the main BAFTA Film Awards ceremony.
