2021 BAFTA Film Awards: "Nomadland" takes top prize

The British Academy of Film and Television presented the second night of its annual film awards, with most of the big categories. The results threw a few (largely, though not exclusively, British-based) curveballs into the roster of names that have dominated the season, most notably denying Chadwick Boseman a posthumous sweep of the top acting honours by awarding the Best Actor prize to local boy Sir Anthony Hopkins for The Father; The Father also upset erstwhile frontrunner Nomadland in Best Adapted Screenplay.

Elsewhere, Carey Mulligan has every right to be annoyed as there's good reason, based on Promising Young Woman's two prizes, to think she might have won again here if the jury had nominated her.  Daniel Kaluuya's sweep continued.  Trial of the Chicago continues to flag, as it was shut out even in Editing, thought to be its best hope.  But the absolute best speech of the night went to Youn Yuh-jung, now the frontrunner for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress with her win here:
