Amfo opened the first night by reading a tribute to Prince Philip, who died Friday at the age of 99.


"On behalf of BAFTA, we are extremely saddened by the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, on Friday. The Duke was BAFTA’s very first president over 60 years ago and was the first of a line of royal patronage all the way through to BAFTA’s current president, his grandson, the Duke of Cambridge," Amfo read. "It was Prince Philip and Her Majesty the Queen’s support throughout these years that in many ways allowed BAFTA, a leading charity in the arts, to continue in difficult times and to be here today in 2021. The Duke of Edinburgh occupies a very special place in BAFTA history and he will be missed. Our thoughts are with his family." Prince William was scheduled to appear during the weekend's event, but canceled following his grandfather's death.


Additionally, during night one, BAFTA nominee Leslie Odom Jr. sang "Speak Now," the song he co-wrote for the film One Night in Miami.
