Bafta Awards

WHEN: Sunday, February 18, 2024 beginning at 7PM
WHERE: Broadcast from Royal Festival Hall in London on BBC1 with livestreaming on Britbox

Like the Oscars, the BAFTAs are the UK's top honor for both British and international movie hits.

In recent years, the BAFTAs have have closely mimicked Hollywood -- and vice versa -- so the UK awards are always closely watched stateside for possible Oscar winners.

This year, watch for "the British Oscars", the 2024 BAFTA Awards, to be televised live on Sunday evening, February 18, 2024 on BBC1 from Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall in London.

(Last year, American and international audiences watched a live stream of the complete ceremony on BritBox.)

Meanwhile, the annual longlist of BAFTA nominees will be announced on Friday, January 5, 2024 followed by the official 2024 BAFTA nominations announced on Thursday, January 18, 2024, a full month before the awards ceremony.

And be sure to keep it here for more updates -- including this year's hosts, performers and presenters, as well as the announcement of big winners on awards night!

And, in an extra-special tribute this year, actress Helen Mirren took the reigns in honoring William's grandmother, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, for her support of the BAFTAs that spanned 50 years.
