This year the British Academy Film and Television Arts Awards ceremony will be held tonight (Sunday, February 10) at 7pm. The 72nd BAFTAs ceremony will be taking place at the Royal Albert Hall in London with A-listers hitting the red carpet before the results are announced. Here’s everything you need to know about the BAFTAs 2019 ceremony including start time, how to watch in the UK and the key contenders this year.

What time does the BAFTAs 2019 start tonight?

The BAFTAs 2019 ceremony will be starting at 7pm GMT but won’t be available to watch on television for two hours.

There will be a delay during which the production team will be editing the highlights from the ceremony before it is broadcast.

The ceremony will be televised on BBC One from 9pm GMT this evening in the UK and will be running for two hours and will wrap up at 11pm.

The awards ceremony is also available to stream live via the BBC iPlayer for those in Britain.

Ahead of the BAFTAs ceremony, there will be a red carpet programme that fans can watch online and will be kicking off from 5pm.

The BAFTAs 2019 red carpet will be hosted by Dermot O’Leary and Edith Bowman and will be running for 90 minutes before concluding at 6.30pm.

Audiences can watch the BAFTAs red carpet via the organisation’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts as well the official website.

Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley will again be presenting the ceremony for a second consecutive year.

BAFTA 2019 nominations

Olivia Colman period drama The Favourite leads the nominations with 12 nods and could be the big winner of the evening.

Co-stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz have been nominated in the Supporting Actress category and will be competing against each other for the accolade.

The Favourite has been nominated in a number of categories including Best Film, Best Leading Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Editing, Production Design, Costume Design, Make Up & Hair.

Bohemian Rhapsody, A Star Is Born, Roma and First Man come behind The Favourite with seven nominations each.

A Star Is Born actress Lady Gaga will not be attending the BAFTAs this evening because it clashes with the Grammys 2019 in the US.

Christian Bale film Vice has got a total of six nominations and Spike Lee satire BlackKkKlansman has five nods.

The BAFTAs have often been considered a good barometer of who will win the Oscars - although the BAFTAs are more likely to give accolades to British talent.

In 2018 Frances McDormand, Gary Oldman, Allison Janney and Sam Rockwell all won in the same categories at both the BAFTAs and the Oscars.

The BAFTAs 2019 airs on BBC One tonight at 9pm
