Are you excited? This Sunday sees the BAFTAs head our way, which is – quite frankly – the best awards ceremony out there and to prove it – even in this crazy British weather – we’ve got confirmation of all the biggest stars attending this Sunday 16th February, 2014.
Let’s get straight to it because there’s some massive names here that include nominees, presenters and other attendees of the prestigious event at the Royal Opera House, London. They are, in handy alphabetical order:
Alfonso Cuarón, Amy Adams, Barkhad Abdi, Bradley Cooper, Bruce Dern, Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christian Bale, Daniel Brühl, David O. Russell, Emma Thompson, Dame Judi Dench, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Scorsese, Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender, Oprah Winfrey, Paul Greengrass, Ron Howard, Sally Hawkins, Sandra Bullock, Steve Coogan, Steve McQueen and Tom Hanks.
Hanks! Bale! Damon! Fassbender! Bullock! DiCaprio!! It’s safe to say that this year is looking to be one of the biggest and best and with all the top, top names of Hollywood and the industry attending we’re very excited to see who wins what.
The awards are once again hosted by the enigmatic Stephen Fry, and will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC One HD at 9.00pm on Sunday 16th February. It’ll also feature a live performance from multi-platinum-selling artist Tinie Tempah and Mercury Prize nominee Laura Mvula. For the sixth year a special red carpet show will be broadcast by the BBC Three, hosted by the film-loving Edith Bowman at 8.30pm.
Dame Helen Mirren, recipient of the BAFTA Fellowship, will also be in attendance. You can read all about her very special award by clicking here.
