LONDON (AP) — “Nomadland” has won four prizes, including best picture, at the British Academy Film Awards.

The film’s director, Chloe Zhao, became only the second woman to win the best director trophy, and star Frances McDormand was named best actress.

“Nomadland” also took the cinematography prize on Sunday.

Emerald Fennell’s revenge comedy “Promising Young Woman” was named best British film, while the best actor trophy went to 83-year-old Anthony Hopkins for playing a man grappling with dementia in “The Father.”

An event that was criticized in the recent past with the label #BAFTAsSoWhite rewarded a diverse group of talents, during a pandemic-curbed ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
