Stephen seems overjoyed after being given the honour of hosting the show for another year.
Stephen Fry said: “Hosting the Film Awards has always been a highlight of my year. The opportunity to help the Academy promote filmmaking and encourage cinema-going means a lot to me. I’ve met many heroes and had the honour of introducing many young talents that are now busy forging remarkable careers for themselves. Seeing the photos from each year back I can chart my bewildering changes in weight too…”
The ceremony will be broadcast exclusively on BBC One in the UK and in all major territories around the world. The BBC One broadcast will be preceded by a red carpet show on BBC Three and complimented by extended coverage from BAFTA online.
