The British Academy Film Awards are taking place on Sunday evening and we're thrilled for all the talented stars winning big this year. 

The awards, which usually take place in February at the Royal Albert Hall, were pushed back in light of the coronavirus pandemic and certainly look different to previous years. But at the heart of it, the very best actors and movie titles from the past 12 months will be celebrated and recognised, after what has been an extraordinary year for the film industry.
