While the Oscars air later this month, the U.K.’s equivalent award show, the British Academy Film Awards were held on Sunday in a socially distanced ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Chloé Zhaos Nomadland took home four BAFTAs, including Best Film. Zhao also made history as the second woman to win best director at the awards. Minari and Judas and the Black Messiah won acting awards in the Best Supporting Actor and Actress categories.

Although, both Best Actor and Actress awardees were not present virtually to accept their awards. Frances McDormand took home the award in the female category for Nomadland while Anthony Hopkins won for The Father. Hopkins gave an interview after the show stating that he was painting while the awards were called.
