By Zach Harper

The nominees are in for the 2021 BAFTAs!

This year, director Chloé Zhao's acclaimed Nomadland and British coming-of-age movie Rocks lead the pack, both picking up six nods.

Chadwick Boseman's performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom has picked up yet another nomination, with the late actor being nominated for Best Leading Actor for his role in the Netflix film.

Fans of The Crown will notice two of the show's stars have received nominations for their acting work and screenwriting, respectively. Vanessa Kirby, who played Princess Margaret in the first two seasons of the series, is up for her work in Pieces of a Woman. Meanwhile, Emerald Fennell, who played Camilla Parker Bowles in seasons three and four, is up for several awards for her work on Promising Young Woman, including Best Original Screenplay.
