Willard RiveraFeb 13, 2017

Master of ceremonies Stephen Fry joked about Trump's dismissal of Streep as overrated, declaring from the stage: "I look down on row after row of the most overrated people on the planet". Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be top guests attending BAFTA Awards 2017.

Ken Loach condemned the Government as he accepted his Bafta award for outstanding British film. The nominations were announced on January 10, 2017, by actor Dominic Cooper and actress Sophie Turner.

Emma Stone won the best actress award for her role in "La La Land", while her co-star Ryan Gosling was beaten in the leading actor category by Casey Affleck.

Sure, the annual BAFTA Film Awards honors the best in British films, but it also singles out the greatest worldwide titles of the year, which means those in the US will be in interested in finding out who wins.

The philosophical sci-fi yarn "Arrival" and the psychological thriller "Nocturnal Animals" have nine BAFTA nominations each. "Cinema fans across the globe eagerly await this extravagant awards ceremony and are particularly excited this year with the huge favourite "La La Land" leading the nominations. dittoTV subscribers can catch all the glamour, excitement and red carpet moments live as it happens on their internet enabled devices even if they are on the go or don't have easy access to a TV set".


"La La Land" also claimed awards for the best original music and cinematography.

JK Rowling, the writer, has a chance of winning her first competitive Bafta for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, after she wrote the script, while Andrew Garfield and Aaron Taylor-Johnson have also been nominated.

Manchester by the Sea has six nominations in total and could potentially take home some of the big prizes - Casey Affleck's performance has already won him several best actor awards this season.

Arrival, Manchester By The Sea and Moonlight also appear in a number of categories.
