The Film Awards is transmitted around the world, and those audiences know him too.  “With Graham as our host I have no doubt we will deliver a very special celebration of the very best in film, and pay tribute to the most talented and creative people both in front of and behind the camera.”  The ceremony will be held at the Royal Albert Hall and will feature a special performance from Cirque du Soleil.  It will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.  BAFTA nominations will be revealed on January 7, 2020, following the EE Rising Star nominations on January 6.
