The 69th BAFTAs Predictions

baftas

The 69th British Academy Film Awards is tonight (Feb. 14th) and just two weeks remain before the Oscars are held. Since the BAFTAs are held at The Royal Opera House in London, it’s always a bit confusing as to when the ceremony is held and when it is aired. The ceremony will begin at 2 pm EST/7 pm GMT, but it won’t air on BBC One (for UK viewers) until 4 pm EST/9 pm GMT. For US viewers, the ceremony will not air on BBC America until 8 pm EST. For those that wish to be updated as the ceremony is happening in real time should stick around as I will be updating the list with the winners.
