The biggest night in British broadcasting is almost upon us. The 2015 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards will crown some of the year’s most prominent talent in the U.K. (and Hollywood) with the prestigious prize. Now, on the eve of the big show, many are wondering where they can tune in to see their favorite nominees win a BAFTA award.
Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be an official live stream for the event. While many users on sites like Reddit claim to have links to the show, we would recommend being very careful about clicking on them.
With no live stream, it’s still possible to watch the show on TV. If you’re in the U.S. the show will be broadcast live on BBC America. In the U.K., the show will be broadcast on BBC One at 9 p.m., with red carpet coverage airing on BBC Three at 8:30. The show will be broadcast internationally on select networks. Check out the official BAFTAs broadcaster list to see where you can watch in your part of the globe.
Leading the show in nominations for the BAFTA Awards is Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” with 11 nominations. However, films like ‘The Theory of Everything” and the “Birdman” are following close behind with 10. Stars like Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo and Emma Stone are up for BAFTAs for their work this year as well, and are expected to be in attendance.
In addition to the general awards, the BAFTAs have a special category that’s chosen by a public fan vote. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jack O’Connell, Margot Robbie, Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley are up for the EE Rising Star Award. The prestigious award is meant to highlight young actors and actresses who have had a particularly eventful year. Previous winners include Kristen Stewart, Tom Hardy, Eva Green, Shia LeBeouf and James McAvoy.
Tune in to the Feb. 8 show on the channel in your area to see which of your favorites is taking home an award from the British academy.
