Figures collated and published by the BFI show that:
- In the 2020/21 award cycle, UK films and talent won 31 awards (21 per cent of possible awards) across five major film festivals in 2020 and the Academy Awards® and BAFTA Film Awards in 2021.
- UK films and talent won nine awards at the Sundance, Berlinale, Venice and Toronto film festivals. UK films and talent won 14 awards at the BAFTA Film Awards in 2020, and eight awards at tthe 2020 Academy Awards® across a range of award categories, including acting, music andscreenwriting.
- Seven UK recipients won awards in the same category at both the BAFTAs and Oscars®: Anthony Hopkins (actor), Daniel Kaluuya (supporting actor), Emerald Fennell (original screenplay), Christopher Hampton (adapted screenplay), Atticus Ross (score), AndrewJackson and Andrew Lockley (visual effects) and James Reed (documentary, co-director).
- Whilst the coronavirus pandemic meant that most of the festivals and ceremonies needed to hold their events either virtually or in-person with social distancing, this did not substantially affect the number of awards available with the exception of Cannes. In 2020 Cannes, which usually presents more than 30 awards, only awarded prizes for the Short Film Palme d’Or and the Ciné fondation film school competition.
