The 77th British Academy Film Awards will be taking place on February 18, honouring the most exceptional national and foreign films of 2023.

Last year was momentous for the movie industry, with the likes of Barbie, Oppenheimer and Saltburn gracing our screens and sparking conversations on a global scale.

It will come as no surprise that the impending BAFTAs are already shaping up to be an impressive night, celebrating the best of British television and film.

Read on to discover more about the prestigious awards and the full list of nominations for 2024.

What are the BAFTA Awards?

The BAFTA Awards are an acknowledgement and celebration of film, in all its forms. Despite the name, the awards are open to films from anywhere in the world, though there are two categories reserved exclusively for UK features — outstanding British film and outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer. Of course, both awards receive a lot of attention in the home market.

It is also widely acknowledged that the the BAFTAs are typically an accurate prediction of impending Oscars success. In 2023, All Quiet on the Western Front took home the BAFTA, with its success ultimately resulting in four Academy Awards as well.

Oppenheimer has the most nominations with a total of 13 nominations, followed by Poor Things which has accrued 11.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor is also set to perform her iconic hit 'Murder on the Dancefloor' from Saltburn at the ceremony.

Where are the BAFTA Awards held?

Held in the Royal Festival Hall within London's Southbank Centre, the ceremony will be hosted by David Tennant for the first time.

"I am delighted to have been asked to host the EE BAFTA Film Awards and help celebrate the very best of this year's films and the many brilliant people who bring them to life," he said.
