The Bafta ceremony is scheduled for Feb. 18 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The Baftas are often regarded as a crude bellwether for the Academy Awards, as there is some overlap between membership of the British film academy, which oversees the Baftas, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which organizes the Oscars.
The BAFTAs, which nominated Call Me By Your Name, Darkest Hour, Dunkirk, The Shape of Water, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, for best film, will be handed out in London on Feb. 18. See the full list of nominees below.Read More
BAFTA’s eclectic membership, representing roughly 6,500 entertainment industry professionals, votes on the best films released on British screens across the respective calendar year. Membership largely crosses over with Oscar’s, meaning several surprise winners (like Patel) could end up repeating during the Academy’s Feb. 26 telecast.
