Britain's biggest film honors, BAFTA is a key stop on the awards season calendar, particularly with so many members overlapping with AMPAS. Graham Norton is hosting the ceremony this year for the first time with trophies to be handed out on February 2 at London's Royal Albert Hall.
Among rule tweaks this year, BAFTA has introduced a Casting Award to “recognize achievements in the craft of casting and its importance in filmmaking.” There have been no changes, however, to existing rules regarding theatrical releases required for eligibility, a hot-button issue in the past year, and one BAFTA intends to be “rigorous” about.
