The 2021 BAFTAs have welcomed a new era of filmmakers.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced its list of nominees on Tuesday for the upcoming BAFTA Awards, breaking a record for most-nominated female directors, as well as being its most diverse year for nominees.

From Minari's scene-stealing Alan Kim to Alfre Woodard, Riz Ahmed and the late Chadwick Boseman, the list of nominees includes a wide array of talent. Other notable nominations include Radha Blank for The Forty-Year-Old Version as well as Maria Bakalova for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and Dominique Fishback for Judas And The Black Messiah.

This year, the award show will take place on the weekend of April 10 and April 11 with two shows broadcast virtually from London's Royal Albert Hall.
