What will the BAFTAS 2022 look like?

Viewers can expect red carpet coverage, OTT speeches and an awkward moment or two since, for the first time since 2020, the BAFTA Awards will be going ahead as an in-person event at the Royal Albert Hall.

Unlike the 2021 ceremony, it's expected that there will be little to no virtual participation, although concessions will be made for international nominees who cannot travel due to Covid restrictions or concerns.


Passing is up for five nominations

Where can we watch the BAFTAs 2022 and who is hosting?

The ceremony will be hosted by Australian actress and comedian Rebel Wilson and will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer from 7pm on Sunday 13 March.

Opening about the incredible honour, she said: "It's going to be so much fun! I don't wanna put any pressure on this - I know I'm not going to be funny because I am no longer fat. And besides, I'm not going to 'sweat-it' with nerves because I have a peculiar medical condition where I can't sweat...or cause offence to people because of my adorable Australian accent."

It seems that it could be a big night for homegrown talent as many British films and actors have done well to receive plenty of nods this year; for instance, Benedict Cumberbatch and Stephen Graham are both up for the Leading Actor, and Joanna Scanlan and up-and-coming star Emelia Jones are vying for Leading Actress.
