If you are interested in checking out the BAFTA Film Awards 2018 on Sunday, there are a few different things to know — primarily if you are in the UK.
For starters, there’s the subject of where you can watch the ceremony. It will air on BBC starting after the conclusion of Call the Midwife at 9:00 p.m. London time and will be broadcast for the two hours that follow. Here is how the BBC describes it:
Joanna Lumley hosts the British Academy Film Awards live from the Royal Albert Hall in London. Nominees for the coveted Bafta masks include Annette Benning, Gary Oldman, Octavia Spencer, Hugh Grant, Margot Robbie, Daniel Kaluuya, Kristin Scott Thomas, Sam Rockwell, Willem Dafoe and Frances McDormand. Films include Darkest Hour, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Call Me By Your Name and The Shape of Water.
This is more or less the British equivalent of the Academy Awards, one even attended by members of the Royal Family. There are plans, similar to the Golden Globes, for most of the actresses to wear black in solidarity over sexual harassment and abuse within the entertainment industry.
What about a live stream?
If you are located in Britain, you should be able to watch the ceremony play out live via the BBC iPlayer. With a proper TV license, you should be able to watch the big ceremony without too much of a problem.
What about in America?
While it may not be live, the great news is that you can still check out the ceremony here in the United States! The ceremony will begin airing at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on BBC America, and it could be a nice dose of glamour for those out there who have grown a little bit tired with watching Olympics or some of the other typical stuff that is on the air.
