Are the BAFTAs a must-see event on your calendar? Do you love the glitz and glamour and possible tripping up of a sleb or two? Got strong feelings about who should win Best Actor? Then you've come to the right place to talk all things BAFTA.

BBC1 is screening the ceremony live on Sunday night at 9pm and Red Carpet shenanigans start at 8.30pm on BBC3 <swishes dress><trips over bunny slippers>.

I can't wait. I love the programme, it is so entertaining and funny, especially if it's stephen fry hosting. I haven't even thought about the nominations, just looking forward to some good TV

Oh god, it's not Stephen Fry is it? Wit Almighty hmm

Davros Thu 05-Feb-15 18:17:51

YES! It's Stephen Fry again

Nominees are here:

Theory of Everything stands a good chance, going by its reception.

Looking forward to it.

I don't like Stephen Fry. Too arch and not as funny, witty or clever as he thinks he is.

Like looking at the dresses though.

I don't get time to watch films these days. love the red carpet though.

yes love it all, especially the Americans faces when they don't get SF's jokes, or they do but the crudity shocks them!!

Davros Thu 05-Feb-15 21:46:02

I don't like Stephen Fry on much other than this (Jeeves?) but he's FAR better than Jonathan Ross.
The theory of Everything is my favourite out of the films with lots of nominations. I couldn't sit through more than 10 minutes of The Grand Budapest Hotel, enjoyed Gone Girl but had read the book so no surprises and I fell asleep!

I love an awards show

Where can we watch the oscars?

Tootoofunny Fri 06-Feb-15 00:20:49

There's a lovely little film with Olivia Coleman that should win the short films

ThinkIveBeenHacked Fri 06-Feb-15 07:50:53

Tbf Olivia Coleman should win all the awards.

Davros Fri 06-Feb-15 10:15:59

I've given up on watching the Oscars. It's too long and at the wrong time, highlights only for me, if that. Once you've heard the results on the radio in the morning it's hardly worth bothering

Tom Hiddleston is presenting an award smile

SconeRhymesWithGone Fri 06-Feb-15 18:22:55

Yes, I always watch it, and I'm in the States. I have a reminder set for BBC America to watch it Sunday. It's always far more entertaining than the Oscars.

Baftas? Ooh, I hope that nice Stephen Fry wins something...

Floundering Sat 07-Feb-15 17:48:57

I'm torn between hoping Eddie Redmayne gets Best Chap for History of Everything & wanting Benedict C to get it for The Imitation Game

Love the dresses and outfits but that's about it!

Lilwelshyrs Sun 08-Feb-15 19:49:41

I work backstage on it every year smile

MrsWembley Sun 08-Feb-15 19:49:44

I used to love award shows - once stayed up all night with friends, watching the Oscars (but then it was also my birthday and we did have a bit to drink...)

Can't be doing with them now. Love to hear about the winners and losers the next day but really can't sit through a whole show. I suppose it's different if you're involved, though...

<wanders off, dreaming >

lovelychops Sun 08-Feb-15 20:38:08

Timer is set and I'm looking forward to it.
Agree with poster who said Olivia Coleman to win everything!
Think Benedict is in with a good chance and glad I've actually seen most of the films for a change!

meglet Sun 08-Feb-15 20:44:51

that's exciting lilwel , techy backstage or sleb related backstage?

AliceMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 08-Feb-15 20:48:22

<grabs giant bowl of popcorn and settles down> Who's excited?

SandyMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 08-Feb-15 20:52:05

Hi everyone <excited>

helensburgh Sun 08-Feb-15 21:04:17

I feel out of touch, didn't know one of the people on the red carpet!
