Roll out the red carpet for Britain’s own starry version of the Oscars, its time for the BAFTAs. The Academy Awards are only a fortnight away and much of the buzz has been about La La Land and its 14 nominations.

It also dominates tonight’s BAFTA nominations, with 11 nods including best film, best director and best original screenplay.

It can’t, of course, compete in the Best British film category, which has a strong field including I, Daniel Blake, Fantastic Beasts and Notes on Blindness (on BBC4 this Thursday at 9.00pm). Who will take home the coveted award?
