The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) and EE have announced that Edith Bowman and Dermot O’Leary will host the official red carpet live programme for the EE British Academy Film Awards.
Live from the Royal Albert Hall on 18 February at 17.00 GMT, Edith and Dermot will welcome guests to the red carpet for a night celebrating the very best in British and international cinema. I’ve got to dig my tuxedo out from wherever it’s hiding or I’m going to be rather under-dressed to the red carpet to say the least!
Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive of BAFTA, said: “We are delighted to be working with Edith and Dermot, and to extend the invite to people around the world to join us to celebrate the awards. We’re excited to reach new audiences and share the experience through all of our channels.”
Voting closes for the EE Rising Star Award on Wednesday 14 February at 12.00. This year’s nominees are Timothée Chalamet, Josh O’Connor, Daniel Kaluuya, Florence Pugh and Tessa Thompson. Visit www.ee.co.uk/BAFTA to cast your vote.
