Nomadland has become the big winner at the 74th BAFTAs, the most important British film awards. The drama won four awards, including Best Picture and Best Direction (Chloé Zhao). Leading actress Frances McDormand was named best actress.




Favorite with seven nominations, Nomadland is about a woman who has become widowed and unemployed and decides to travel through the United States by van. Along the way she builds a bond with other ‘nomads’. Besides McDormand and actor David Strathairn, most of the other roles are played by people from the real traveler community.

Other films that won several awards on Sunday were The Father, Soul and Promising Young Woman. The three titles all won twice. Winners in eight smaller categories were already announced on Saturday. Then Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom also received two awards.

Quo Vadis, Aida?

The Father won thanks to lead actor Anthony Hopkins, who was awarded the BAFTA for best actor.

The BAFTAs for Best Supporting Actor and Male Actress went to Daniel Kaluuya in Judas and the Black Messiah and Youn Yuh-jung in Minari respectively. The Rising Star Award was presented to Bukky Bakray for her role on Rocks.

The Bosnian film Quo Vadis, Aida?, In which several Dutch actors play, failed to win the prizes despite two nominations. Druk, a Danish tragicomedy in which the Dutch production company Topkapi Films collaborated, did go home with an award. The film won in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
