Everything You Need To Know Ahead Of Tonight’s BAFTA’s

Irelands very own Graham Norton is hosting for the first time!

It’s one of the biggest nights for film that isn’t held in the US, tonight is the 73rd British Academy Film Awards.

We love an awards ceremony, and not just to see who goes home with a gong. We just keep refreshing social, waiting to see the gunas on the red carpet.

Yes, whilst we sit on the couch in pyjamas eating Doritos, we will judge best and worst dressed like it’s the most pressing issue of the day. Don’t you do it too?

So, here’s everything you need to know before you put on your fluffy socks and park yourself in front of the TV later.

What are the nominations?

Yes the nominations are looking as pale, male and stale as ever with Greta Gerwig being snubbed again despite the marvel that was Little Women.
