Are you ready in your heart, soul, and mind for the BAFTA victory of Leonardo DiCaprio? Or, if gravity breaks and the Earth plunges into nonsense, could someone actually stand in his way? Just imagine. While we wait, here's all the info needed to enjoy the 69th annual awards.
What day are the BAFTAs?
The BAFTAs will take place at 7pm on Sunday 14 February, held at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, central London.
How can I watch the BAFTAs?
The show isn't screened live, but an edited version is shown live on BBC One at 9PM that same evening, and will also be available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
Who is hosting the ceremony?
Stephen Fry's back to host, marking his 11th year.
When is the red carpet show?
A red carpet pre-show will be shown on BAFTA's website from 5-7PM, with a highlights show broadcast on BBC Three at 8.30PM. The ceremony's sponsors EE will also drop their own highlights video on their YouTube channel the following morning, at 9AM Monday 15 February; hosted by Laura Whitmore (Celebrity.... Get Me Out of Here NOW!), interviewing guests by utilising a wearable 4G camera decorated with Swarovski crystals.
BAFTA confirmed the following nominees will be attending: Aaron Sorkin, Adam McKay, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Alex Garland, Alicia Vikander, Asif Kapadia, Bel Powley, Benicio Del Toro, Bryan Cranston, Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, Dakota Johnson, Eddie Redmayne, Idris Elba, John Boyega, Julie Walters, Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio, Maggie Smith, Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender, Rooney Mara, Saoirse Ronan, Steven Spielberg, Taron Egerton, Todd Haynes and Tom Hooper.
