The movie Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom has won two prizes on the first night of the 2021 Bafta Film Awards, which are being split over two days for the first time.
Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom stars Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman as members of a 1920s blues band.
Other winners on the first night of the award included Christopher Nolan’s time-bending thriller titled ‘Tenet’.
Many of the technical prizes were handed out on Saturday, with the main awards to be presented on Sunday.
Both halves of the ceremony are being presented from the Royal Albert Hall, but winners are appearing virtually.
