The ceremony will take place at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall where celebrities in movies will come together at the big night. The BBC iPlayer will live stream the show if you're within the confines of the U.K. The award show doesn't have a broadcast partner, but highlights will be provided online.

You may well be exhausted of hearing about La La Land, but its winning streak shows no signs of slowing down. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are hot favourites to take home best actor and actress trophies home.

The "La La Land" musical directed by Damien Chazelle won the best film award at the 70th British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) ceremony in London on Sunday, after winning seven Golden Globes last month.

But despite its awards success, La La Land has actually now fallen behind Hidden Figures at the USA box office.

The BAFTAs differ from their USA counterpart in having a separate category for best British film.
