Britain’s biggest annual awards ceremony for film, the BAFTAs, has come around again, the likes of Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Viola Davis all expected to attend the 2017 celebration.

Want to catch all the action? Here’s everything you need to know about the 2017 EE Bafta Film Awards, including what time, who’s presenting, and who is nominated for awards.

When and where will the ceremony take place?

The BAFTAs take place Sunday 12 February at London's Royal Albert Hall.

What time? How can I watch?

While the ceremony kicks off at 19.00 GMT, an edited version of the actual ceremony won’t be aired until 21.00 GMT on BBC One. Viewers can watch online via BBC iPlayer.

What time does the red carpet start? How can I watch?

If you really don’t want to miss a moment, you can watch the glamorous celebrities walk the red carpet from between 16.30 and 18.30 on the BAFTA Facebook page.

Who is hosting?

Once again, Stephen Fry will be hosting affairs. The former Blackadder actor will likely try and avoid calling anyone a ‘bag lady’ this year.

Who is nominated?

La La Land (of course) leads the pack with an astounding eleven nominations in total, while Nocturnal Animals and Arrival follow closely with nine apiece.

For British film, Ken Loach's brilliant I, Daniel Blake has five nominations, equalled only by Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Read the full list of nominees here.
