This year's BAFTA ceremony will be taking place on Sunday (18 February), celebrating the most outstanding work in film over the past 12 months with the great and the good of Hollywood. All eyes will be on the team behind The Shape of Water, having received an impressive 12 nods, while Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Darkest Hour follow closely with nine nominations each. And for the first time in ten years, Stephen Fry will not be the host on the night.

Here's everything you need to know about the BAFTAs 2018 so far, including the all-important nominations.

What are the BAFTA Awards?

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is a world-leading independent arts charity that brings the very best work in film, games and television to public attention and supports the growth of creative talent in the UK and internationally. The British Academy Film Awards or BAFTA Film Awards are presented in an annual awards show hosted by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) to honour the best British and international contributions to film.

Where are the BAFTA Awards held?

For the second year in a row, the BAFTAs will be held at London's Royal Albert Hall in South Kensington. It was previously hosted at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

Where to watch the BAFTAs

The ceremony will air from 9pm on Sunday on BBC1. It will also be live-streamed on Facebook for international viewers. The full ceremony will then become available for streaming on BBC iPlayer.
