The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards has improved their broadcasting plans for the event.
The award function previously was pre-recorded and was showcased as live on the same date. But this time it is different as the show will be broadcast-ed on BBC One in the U.K. and is syndicated globally.
The CEO of BAFTA, Jane Millichip who is newly appointed says, “The EE BAFTA Film Awards are an annual showcase to celebrate the extraordinary skills, talent and craft of the film industry. The changes we are introducing to the BBC One broadcast of the awards will ensure those audiences will have the best seats in the house. Going live for the last awards of the night will raise anticipation, and our back-stage studio will give viewers exclusive insight into the event and the talent taking part.”
The program will be led by two hosts and a backstage studio is also set up. The purpose behind all this is with VTs from the red carpet and backstage as well as talent interviews with previous and current winners, nominees, and presenters, the goal is to provide the audience an access to all areas experience.
The ceremony will be held on February 19 at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
