BAFTAs 2021 Moves to April 2021 After Oscars Announces Their Postponement

The 2021 BAFTAs (aka the British Academy Film Awards) have officially been postponed from February 14, 2021 to April 11, 2021.

“This change from the previously announced date of Feb. 14 acknowledges the impact of the global pandemic and accommodates an extended eligibility period. Further details on the ceremony will be announced later in the year,” the organization said in a statement (via Variety). “The date for the 2022 Film Awards, announced last year as 13 February, is currently under consideration as part of the Awards Review (set up following this year’s Film nominations), and any changes will be published once the Review has been completed, alongside other findings and recommendations.”

The Oscars were postponed earlier today amid the growing concern over the Coronavirus pandemic.
