With the pandemic still raging, another change will take place this year: the BAFTAs will happen in two parts.
Both shows, recognising the very best in film of the past year, will be broadcast virtually from London’s Royal Albert Hall.
The first show celebrates the craft of film while the second main show will feature the mainstream awards.
Show one was hosted by Clara Amfo on Saturday night and saw eight of the 17 gongs awarded.
During the broadcast it was revealed that Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom won two awards: Costume Design and Make Up & Hair. Rocks won Casting while Sound of Metal won Sound. Mank picked up Production Design, and Tenet won Special Visual Effects.
The Present won the British Short Film award, while the BAFTA for British Short Animation was won by The Owl and the Pussycat.
The award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema, announced last month, was presented to filmmaker Noel Clarke.

Prince William, who is president of BAFTA, has withdrawn from this weekend’s BAFTA awards coverage following the death of his grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.
He was due to feature on Saturday in a pre-recorded conversation with costume designer Jenny Beavan and make-up and hair designer Sharon Martin, talking about filming in lockdown and the craft of film-making.
On Saturday night, host Clara Amfo paid tribute to Prince Philip on behalf of BAFTA by kicking off the evening with a touching statement in his honour.
Show two is fronted by Dermot O’Leary and Edith Bowman from London’s Royal Albert Hall where the acting prizes will be given out. No audience will be present.
Both programmes are being broadcast in all major territories around the world and a total of 50 feature films received nominations this year.
Presenters will appear during the ceremony from both London and Los Angeles, but all nominees will accept their prizes virtually in front of a virtual audience watching from home.
Among the prizes announced on the second night will be the public-voted EE Rising Star Award and the Fellowship, BAFTA’s highest honour.
