Who is hosting the BAFTA Games Awards?

The BAFTA Games Awards 2021 will be hosted by presenter and journalist Elle Osili-Wood, who has worked extensively with BAFTA over the last few years.

Teasing the ceremony in an exclusive interview, Osili-Wood told RadioTimes.com, “We want it to be fun, we want it to be engaging, we want it to be different from the myriad online ceremonies you might have seen this year. And of course, we just want it to be a celebration of togetherness, and the way in which games have bought us together, the way in which we have had a year to celebrate everything games mean to us.”
