The 75th EE British Academy Film Awards, known as the 2022 BAFTAs, are slated to take place in March 2022. For the first time since 2020, audiences can expect coverage of the red carpet, OTT speeches, and more. The BAFTA Awards will continue to be held in person.
Prince William, the honored president of BAFTA since 2010, and his wife Kate Middleton will be seen attending the fantastic event after 2020. Unlike last year, there will be little to no virtual involvement at the famous event. However, allowances will be made for overseas nominees who cannot attend the ceremony due to COVID issues and constraints.

When are the BAFTAs in 2022?
The 2022 BAFTAs will be held on March 13, 2022. The event will not be shown live but will be broadcast a few hours after it occurs. From 7 p.m. on March 13, 2022, the ceremony will be streamed on BBC iPlayer and BBC One.
This year’s ceremony will be hosted by who?
Rebel Wilson, an Australian comedian and actress is poised to host the BAFTAs in 2022. The Pitch Perfect star has expressed her delight at being chosen to host this year’s BAFTAs, saying:
“It’s going to be a lot of fun! I don’t want to put any pressure on myself because I know I won’t be funny because I’m no longer obese. And, moreover, I’m not going to sweat it with anxiety because I have a strange medical issue that prevents me from sweating…or offending people with my charming Australian accent.”
In terms of who she’s most forward to meeting, the comic added:
So basically, I’ll be there to hang out with Dame Judi Dench and try to bond with Daniel Craig together. And yes, I did say ‘bond.’” (Image courtesy of Hello Magazine) Where will the BAFTAs be held in 2022, and who are this year’s nominees?
