BAFTA Games Awards 2021 Nominations Announced

The nominees for the BAFTA Games Awards 2021 have been announced, with The Last of Us Part II leading the pack with 13 nominations.

The Last of Us Part II featured in various categories this year, including Best Game, Animation, and Game Design. Ashley Johnson (Ellie) and Laura Bailey (Abby) also earned nominations for Best Performer in a Leading Role, while Jeffrey Pierce (Tommy), Shannon Woodward (Dina), and Troy Baker (Joel) were all recognized in the Supporting Roles category.

With 13 nominations in total, The Last of Us Part II makes BAFTA Games Awards history this year, as it beats last year’s record of 11 nominations held by Control and Death Stranding. This means that 13 is now the highest number of nominations any single game has received since the standalone BAFTA Games Awards first began in 2004.

Other contenders in the Best Game category this year include Ghost of Tsushima (which picked up 10 nominations in total), together with IGN’s Game of the Year winner Hades (8 nominations overall), Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (7 nominations altogether), Animal Crossing: New Horizons (5 nominations), and Half-Life: Alyx (4 nominations).
