The 75th EE British Academy Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Film Awards took place Sunday March 13. Over 7,000 voting members submitted their ballots, voting from nominees that looked a bit more like those for the Oscars than in some years past. The entire winners list has now been revealed.

The awards ceremony is airing as of 3:00pm ET Sunday on a one-hour delay for U.S. viewers on Britbox, can you still tune in. And a note on the streamer says it will replay in full there at 7:00pm ET.

Dune” scored the most BAFTA nominations with 11, followed by “The Power of the Dog” with eight, and “Belfast” with six. “West Side Story,” “No Time to Die,” and “Licorice Pizza” followed with five each.

Once the awards were presented Sunday, “The Power of the Dog” emerged winner of Best Film and Best Director for Jane Campion.

“Dune” scored the most overall BAFTAs with five total, however: Best Cinematography, Best Special Visual Effects, Best Sound, Best Score, and Best Production Design. Ariana DeBose won Best Supporting Actress for “West Side Story,” which also picked up Best Casting. Troy Kotsur won Best Supporting Actor for “CODA,” which also picked up Best Adapted Screenplay.

The lead categories went to Will Smith for Best Leading Actor for “King Richard” and Joanna Scanlan for Best Leading Actress for “After Love.”

More women were nominated this time around than ever have been before. Last year, “Nomadland” won Best Film and Best Director for Chloe Zhao.

Rebel Wilson hosted the ceremony, which, like usual, took place at London’s Royal Albert Hall. In recent years, the BAFTAs received criticism much like the #OscarsSoWhite backlash about how non-diverse its winners were. The 2021 winners marked a change in that regard, following some reforms.
