On Sunday 10 February, the Royal Opera House will host the BAFTA Film Awards ceremony for the seventh year running, rolling out the red carpet to welcome a star-studded line up of acting talent.
Nominations for this year’s BAFTA Film Awards have been announced with Steven Spielberg’s Presidential biopic Lincoln taking the lion’s share of the nominations, while Tom Hooper’s silver screen adaptation of West End musical Les Misérables and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi share nine nominations each.
Sam Mendes’s Skyfall, the latest James Bond outing, receives eight nominations. The first ever film to take £100million at the British Box Office, it will battle it out with four other titles – The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Anna Karenina, Les Misérables, and Seven Psychopaths – to be named outstanding British film. View the full list of BAFTA Award nominations.
Last year, Michel Hazanavicius’s silent film The Artist came away the winner with seven awards, and A-listers that graced red carpet outside the Royal Opera House included Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz and Colin Firth.
If you can’t make it to Covent Garden for a glimpse of the stars, the ceremony will be broadcast live on BBC One.
