Hosted by Rebel Wilson, this year’s BAFTA Film Awards is one you don’t want to miss. It’s the first year that Will Smith has ever been nominated for a BAFTA thanks to his work in King Richard, as well as CODA’s Troy Kotsur making history as BAFTA’s first deaf nominee. Leading the nominations is Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic Dune, which features in Best Film as well as an array of technical categories like Cinematography, Editing, and Sound Design.

But it’s Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog that’s predicted to sweep the 2022 BAFTA Film awards, thanks to nominations in major categories like Best Actor, Director, and Film. On the British front, writer-director Aleem Khan has four nominations including Best Director, Leading Actress, Outstanding British Film, and Outstanding debut by a British writer or director.

While the likes of Olivia Colman, Nicole Kidman, Timothée Chalamet, and Kristen Stewart have missed out on nominations for some of this year’s biggest films, the 2022 EE BAFTA Film Awards is set to be one to remember for sure. So here’s everything you need to know about the ceremony, including a full list of the nominees.

Where can you watch the 2022 EE BAFTA Film Awards?

The ceremony will be broadcast live from BBC One on Sunday, March 13. You can also watch it live or on catch-up on BBC iPlayer. Red carpet coverage will also be available to watch and will be live across BAFTA’s social channels @BAFTA, which is set to be hosted by AJ Odudu and Tom Allen.

How to stream Bimini Bon Boulash’s BAFTA watch party

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s Bimini Bon Boulash is also hosting a watch party to coincide with the live coverage on BBC One, which you can stream via @EE on Twitter. “I’m always obsessed with seeing the glamour and the fashion on the red carpet and deciding who was best dressed, but usually this happens when I’m chilling at home in my PJs,” Boulash said. “This year I get to do it in my glad rags with a bunch of mates live from the EE BAFTA Film House, and invite everyone to watch with me on Twitter.”

Set to include “an epic line-up” of film-loving celebrities, there’s also an opportunity for three lucky viewers to join Boulash on the sofa at the EE BAFTA Film House in London to ask the special guests some questions.
