2021 British Academy Games Awards

BAFTA announced the winners of the British Academy Games Awards 2021 on March 25.

Hades led the way with five BAFTAs: Artistic Achievement, Best Game, Game Design, Narrative, and Performer in a Supporting Role for Logan Cunningham.

The Last of Us Part II, despite receiving a record-setting 13 nominations, won only two of the juried categories, Animation and Performer in a Leading Role, with Laura Bailey receiving her first BAFTA. However, it was acclaimed the EE Game of the Year in the lone category voted on by the public.

Siobhan Reddy, studio director at Media Molecule, was given the Academy’s highest honor, the Fellowship.
