Presenters of the evening will include Andy Serkis, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Daisy Ridley, Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Bridgerton's Jonathan Bailey, and Waves and Cyrano star Kelvin Harrison Jr.

Regé Jean-Page, Sophie Turner, Lea Seydoux, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, Tom Hiddleston, RuPaul, Salma Hayek, Pam & Tommy's Sebastian Stan, Saint Maud's Morfydd Clark, Wunmi Mosaku, Simon Pegg, BAFTA winner Naomi Ackie and Sophie Okonedo will also take on presenting duties.

Strictly Come Dancing's AJ Odudu and Tom Allen have been co-hosting BAFTA's red-carpet show, chatting with nominees including Gaga and Smit-Mcphee - who has been nominated for Leading Actor and Rising Star this evening - along with other special guests which is being streamed live across BAFTA's Social Channels.

Prince William, who is BAFTA president, has recorded a special VT that will air during the ceremony.

The legendary Dame Shirley Bassey will open the show with a performance of an iconic Bond theme, celebrating the franchise's 60th anniversary. CODA star and BAFTA Leading Actress nominee Emilia Jones will be performing her rendition of Joni Mitchell’s 'Both Sides Now', taken from the film.

The event is due to be a more muted occasion given the current conflict in Ukraine, the BBC reports.

Speaking about hosting the awards, Wilson said: "Everybody who could potentially employ me is in the audience, so no pressure. But it's really cool that award shows are back. It's like, wow, the actors don't need to do wellness podcasts any more.

"They can wear their fancy outfits, they can come on the red carpet, it's going to be really like glamorous. And I think people are up for that, they're up for a good night and it's all about celebrating films."

As is always the case with awards season, some beloved films released in the past year didn't make the cut. Sony and Marvel's box office hit Spider-Man: No Way Home was not nominated at all, though it was originally entered into the Best Film and Special Visual Effects categories. According to BAFTA, it “failed to meet eligibility criteria” despite its huge success.

The third and final round of voting closed on 8th March, with the winners set to be announced on Sunday 13th March.

BAFTA Film Awards 2022 air date and time

The BAFTA Film Awards 2022 are taking place at London's Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 13th March 2022.

BBC One will be covering the event, the first in-person BAFTA ceremony since 2020, from 7pm BST onwards.

How to watch BAFTA Film Awards 2022 live and on TV

The BAFTA Film Awards 2022 will air live on BBC One in the UK.

Viewers with a TV licence can also watch the BAFTA Film Awards 2022 through BBC iPlayer, which can be used to watch BBC One live.

Who will host the BAFTA Film Awards 2022?

Rebel Wilson, the comedian and actress best known for Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, will helm the 75th BAFTA Film Awards.

Ahead of hosting the first live event since 2020, the actress spoke to Radio Times about how "scary" hosting can be.

“Your head is on the chopping block as the host, which is a bit scary. I get very nervous,” Wilson explained, before adding: “It’s a very hard time for comedians, because what can you say without being cancelled?”

Amanda Berry, BAFTA’s chief executive, said: “Rebel has stolen the show at several previous film awards, and we’re hugely excited to see her bring her fantastic charisma and humour to the whole show.”

Wilson also said in a statement: “It’s going to be so much fun! I don’t wanna put any pressure on this – I know I’m not going to be funny because I am no longer fat. And besides, I’m not going to ‘sweat-it’ with nerves because I have a peculiar medical condition where I can’t sweat... or cause offence to people because of my adorable Australian accent.”

She added: “So basically, I’ll just be there to hang out with Dame Judi Dench and together we’ll both try and bond with Daniel Craig. And yes, I do mean ‘bond’. This show will be an anniversary celebration of some important British film franchises such as Harry Potter and not such as Cats. Everybody’s going to love it, I’m sure!”

The red carpet coverage of the event will be hosted by AJ Odudu and Tom Allen.

Who are the nominees for BAFTA Rising Star Award?


James Bond actress Lashana Lynch and West Side Story’s Ariana DeBose are among the young performers nominated for BAFTA’s Rising Star Award.

DeBose told Sky News that she was "shocked" by her nomination.

"I'm American, this doesn't make any sense... I was like, 'there's absolutely no reason really for me to be here, except you guys asked me to be', and that means the world.

"I'm so honoured to have the work recognised, and specifically, with this type of award, when that's voted on by the British public, that's really special," she added.

Deaf actress Millicent Simmonds, who is only 18 years old, has also made the crop after starring in the horror film A Quiet Place and its 2021 sequel as Regan Abbott.

Harris Dickinson (The King’s Man, Maleficent) has also bagged a nomination alongside Australian actor Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Power of the Dog).

Smit-McPhee told Sky News he felt "sheer joy and excitement and shock" when he learned he’d bagged a nomination, saying he couldn’t put “it into words".

Previous winners have included Bukky Bakray (Rocks), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Kristen Stewart (Twilight) and John Boyega (Star Wars).
