2021 Oscars calendar: BAFTA voting begins March 25, ceremony is April 11

The final voting for the BAFTA Awards kicks off on March 25 and runs till April 7. The ceremony in London takes place on April 11. That is just four days before the academy starts canvassing its members for their final votes for the 2021 Oscars. That balloting period only runs for six days. The 93rd Academy Awards are on April 25.

Since the BAFTAs moved up in 2001 to take place before the Oscars, these kudos have foreseen eight of the 20 Best Picture Oscar winners. The British academy previewed the Oscar wins for “Gladiator” (2001), “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” (2004) and “Slumdog Millionaire” (2009). And they got it right in the first five years of the expanded Best Picture race: “The Hurt Locker” (2010), “The King’s Speech” (2011), “The Artist” (2012), “Argo” (2013) and “12 Years a Slave” (2014).
