Stephen Fry will host his ninth EE British Academy Film Awards on February 16th next year at the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Graden.

Clearly a popular choice, last year’s BAFTA awards show achieved the highest rating for BBC One since 2004.

“I am really thrilled and honoured to have been asked to host the EE British Academy Film Awards again,” said Fry. “Despite the nerves and terror that something might go wrong and that I’ll make a fool of myself, it’s an annual event I really look forward to. I think it’s fundamentally because I love film so much. Film is one of the arts that most spreads the essence of our identity around the world, and our admiration and appreciation of global film-making ensures that the EE British Academy Film Awards sit comfortably on the world stage of film awards events honouring the best of the best.”

Previous BAFTA winners include big names such as Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence.

This years nominations will be announced on January 8th.
