      BAFTA 2021 Film Awards Winners List: Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Mank, & Tenet Win Big On Opening Night


      The opening night of the 2021 BAFTA Film Awards took place on Saturday (April 10, 2021). The first awards night honoured the film craft winners with a virtual ceremony. Hosted by radio and TV presenter Clara Amfo, the night saw winners from Best Picture nominees like Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Mank, Tenet and Sound of Metal.


      Reportedly, the awards ceremony was scheduled to begin at 8 pm local time (UK) but was pushed back by an hour. Clara Amfo opened the ceremony by reading a tribute to Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, who passed away on April 9, 2021 at the age of 99. "The Duke of Edinburgh occupies a very special place in BAFTA history and he will be missed. Our thoughts are with his family," the report quoted Clara.

      Prince William who has been serving as president of BAFTA since 2010, was scheduled to attend the proceedings but pulled out from both nights following the death of his grandfather.
