BAFTA Film Awards 2022: March 13, 2022 (Two Weeks before Oscars)

BAFTA Sets Date for 2022 Film Awards


The British Academy has set the date for its 2022 film awards ceremony.

The event — which will be broadcast on the BBC — will take place in London on Sunday March 13, bringing the awards back from their COVID-impacted 2021 later date in April this year.

They are keeping the traditional gap of two weeks between the BAFTAs and the Oscar Awards, set for March 27.

The BAFTAs have been held at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall for the past few years and are expected to remain.

The 74th BAFTAs — saw Chloe Zhao win best director for Nomadland, Frances McDormand and Anthony Hopkins win for leading actress and leading actor, and Yuh-Jung Youn and Daniel Kaluuya win in the supporting categories. Elsewhere, in an awards ceremony where the winners list almost entirely mirrored the Oscars, there were wins for Another RoundSoul and My Octopus Teacher.

The 2021 BAFTAs, aimed at improving diversity, saw more than 120 rule changes implemented across voting, membership and campaigning.

BAFTA would reveal the full timeline and eligibility details for its 2022 film awards in due course.
