Nomadland and Rocks lead the nominations for the BAFTA 2021 ceremony, with seven nominations apiece in a highly diverse nominations list, with 16 of the 24 acting nominees this year coming from ethnic minority groups.

Zhao, who won best director at the Golden Globes, and Lee Isaac Chung – whose Minari took best foreign language film at the same event – will face Shannon Murphy for Babyteeth, Jasmila Zbanic for Quo Vadis Aida?, Thomas Vinterberg for Another Round, and Gavron for Rocks for best director.

And by contrast to last year’s (20) controversial nominations, when not one actor of colour was nominated in the acting categories Daniel Kaluuya, the late Chadwick Boseman, Riz Ahmed, Dominique Fishback, Tahar Rahim and Bukky Bakray are among the 16 nominees from ethnic minority backgrounds in the acting categories.

The nominations were presented by BAFTA chair Krishnendu Majumdar and presented virtually by actors Aisling Bea and Susan Wokoma.

The winners of BAFTA 2021 Film Awards will be announced at a ceremony without a live audience on 11 April.
