Bafta: Rebel Wilson To Host The 2022 EE British Academy Film Awards

It has been announced that Rebel Wilson will host the 75th EE British Academy Film Awards. The BAFTA ceremony will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 13 March 2022 and be broadcast on BBC One (and HD) and BBC iPlayer.

Wilson, who has presented individual awards at the BAFTAs in the past, will follow in the footsteps of former hosts such as Jonathan Ross, Stephen Fry, Graham Norton and Joanna Lumley

Nominations for the EE British Academy Film Awards will be revealed on 3 February 2022, while the EE Rising Star nominations will be announced on 1 February 2022. 

In a statement, Rebel Wilson said:

“I am very honoured to be hosting the EE British Academy Film Awards in March, where Covid will no longer exist because it will clearly have been canceled by then. It’s going to be so much fun! I don’t wanna put any pressure on this – I know I’m not going to be funny because I am no longer fat. And besides, I’m not going to ‘sweat-it’ with nerves because I have a peculiar medical condition where I can’t sweat…or cause offense to people because of my adorable Australian accent. So basically I’ll just be there to hang out with Dame Judi Dench and together we’ll both try and bond with Daniel Craig. And yes, I do mean ‘bond’.  This show will be an anniversary celebration of some important British film franchises such as HARRY POTTER and not such as CATS. Everybody’s going to love it, I’m sure! See you guys in March!”
