Stephen Fry on what makes the perfect BAFTAs

London is getting ready to roll out the red carpet for some of the world’s biggest stars on Sunday as the city hosts the annual BAFTA Awards.

The ceremony, which up until 12 years ago was held after the Academy Awards, now acts as a curtain raiser to the Oscars and is increasingly seen as a guide to who and what will take home the coveted statues at the glamorous Hollywood soiree on February 24th.

I’ll be on the red carpet on Sunday night and will be putting my money on “Argo” for both Best Film and Best Director. Ben Affleck’s Iranian hostage drama has already scooped all the major accolades this awards season, outshining the favorite “Lincoln” directed by Steven Spielberg.

As much as I’m a huge fan of Hugh Jackman, Daniel Day-Lewis HAS to win the gong for Leading Actor.... and BAFTA host Stephen Fry agrees.

The British raconteur is back for the seventh time despite being criticized for being “too crude” last year. He told me he’ll be keeping it cleaner this year but that doesn’t mean there will be any lack of the British wit that has always set the BAFTAs slightly apart.
