The 2021 South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) were a night to remember. 

Some of Mzani's biggest stars were in attendance. Dineo Langa, Mpho Popps, and Graeme Richards hosted the glamorous event.

The late Menzi Ngubane picked up a posthumous award. He won 'Best Actor – Telenovela' for his role as Judas Nqwenya on 'Isibaya'.  

The legendary actor died in March after suffering a stroke. 

'The River''s Sindi Dlathu took home the 'Best Actress – Telenovela' gong. Other winners on the night included Michelle Botes ('Legacy'), Meshack Mavuso Magabane ('The River'), Petronella Tshuma ('Rhythm City'), and Clint Brink ('Binnelanders'). 

'Rhythm City' won 'Best TV Soap', 'Legacy' bagged 'Best Telenovela', and Netflix's 'Blood and Water Season 1' was named the 'Best TV Drama'.

The theme for this year's event was 'Still Shining' and the stars certainly shined brightly on the red carpet.

Check out some of the best and worst looks. 

Enhle Mbali

Actress Enhle Mbali wowed in several Quiteria Atlelier looks. 

"Two shows nominated. 1 win!! Why choose one dress when you can wear them all," she wrote on Instagram. 

Ayanda Ncwane

The 'Real Housewives of Durban' star, Ayanda Ncwane, was a vision in Gert-Johan Coetzee. 

Katlego Danke

Katlego Danke was also dressed by Quiteria Atlelier. She looked gorgeous in red!

Ami Faku

Ami Faku paid tribute to the late Mary Twala. Her red carpet dress featured a picture of the actress. 

Lerato Kganyago

Lerato Kganyago's sapphire blue gown by Gert-Johan Coetzee was one of the best looks on the night. 


YouTube star Lasizwe made it onto the "worst dressed" list - mostly thanks to his rainbow hair, which didn't really complement his Otsile Sefolo gown.

Lesego Tlhabi

Lesego Tlhabi, aka Coconut Kelz, looked gorgeous in a Keys Fashion design.
