Baftas 2019: Stars descend on London for ceremony

Some the biggest names in cinema are set to gather at London's Royal Albert Hall for this year's Bafta film awards. The Favourite, which stars Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, leads the race with 12 nominations. It's well ahead of its closest competitors – Bohemian Rhapsody, A Star Is Born, Roma and First Man, each of which has seven nominations. The ceremony takes place from 19:00 GMT, and will be hosted by Joanna Lumley for the second consecutive year. The Baftas are often a good indicator of who will go on to awards glory at the Oscars – which are being held this year on Sunday 24 February. Last year, the winners of the acting categories – Frances McDormand, Gary Oldman, Allison Janney and Sam Rockwell – were exactly the same at the Baftas and the Oscars. Read more here >>>
