The British Academy Film Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTAs, will be presented on Sunday, February 18, 2023. The ceremony will take place at the Royal Festival Hall in London, and will be hosted by David Tennant.

Read on to learn more about the BAFTAs and the 2024 nominees.

  1. Where are the BAFTAs? The BAFTAs will take place on Sunday, Feb. 18, at the Royal Festival Hall in London. The event's first year at the Royal Festival Hall was in 2023.
  2. Who is hosting the BAFTAs? David Tennant will serve as host for the 2024 BAFTAs. The Scottish actor is known for his work in the sci-fi series "Doctor Who."

Jonathan Ross and Stephen Fry took turns hosting duties for many years, with Fry hosting from 2002 to 2006, Ross taking over from 2007 to 2011 and Fry returning from 2012 through 2017.

Since then, new entertainers have taken over hosting duties, including Graham Norton, Rebel Wilson and Richard E. Grant and Alison Hammond in 2023.

  1. Where can I watch the BAFTAs? In the U.K., the BAFTAs will be shown on BBC One, and the red carpet will also be live on the BAFTA YouTube channel.

If you are watching in the U.S., the show will be available to stream on BritBox.

  1. Do the BAFTA winners have to be British? BAFTA winners do not have to be British; however, there are a few categories designated for British works and professionals, including outstanding British film and outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer.

According to BAFTA rules, for a film to be considered British, it must be an example of "outstanding and original British film-making," per the BBC.

The BFI cultural test is used to determine whether a project is considered a British film. To achieve this, a project must score 18 out of 35 possible points. Questions in this test include whether British locations are used and if the cast and crew are British.

There are only a handful of BAFTA categories reserved for British films, including outstanding British film and outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer.

  1. Who are the 2024 BAFTA nominees? Nominees for the BAFTAs and the Oscars generally go hand in hand, since they both honor excellence in film; however, there are often some snubs and surprises.

This year, "Oppenheimer" leads the way in nominations for the Oscars and BAFTAs, with 13 nods in each. "Poor Things" received 11 Oscars and BAFTA nominations.

Barbie" was surprisingly missing from the best film category at the BAFTAs, though it is up for the equivalent award at the Oscars. Lily Gladstone is a frontrunner for best actress at the Oscars for her performance in "Killers of the Flower Moon," but is absent from that category at the BAFTAs.

"Saltburn," which was not nominated for any Oscars, earned numerous nominations for a BAFTA, including outstanding British film. Barry Keoghan, Rosamund Pike and Jacob Elordi are all up for awards as well.
