Australian actress Rebel Wilson has been invited to host the awards ceremony in March as BAFTA looks to return to a ‘in-person’ event with audiences.
The British Academy has announced that Australian actress Rebel Wilson will host the 75th BAFTA Film Awards on March 13. The ceremony will take place at London’s Royal Albert Hall and will be streamed on BBC One and iPlayer.
The actress made the announcement following the announcement: “I’m honored to be hosting the EE British Academy Film Awards in March where there’s no more COVID because it’s clearly going to be canceled by then,” Wilson said. “This is going to be so much fun! I don’t want to put any pressure on it – I know I won’t be funny because I’m not fat anymore.”
“Besides, I’m not going to get on my nerves because I have a special medical condition where I can’t sweat… or insult people because of my charming Australian accent. So basically I’ll just be there to hang out with Dame Judi Dench and together we’ll both try to get closer to Daniel Craig. And yes, I mean “connection”.

BAFTA CEO Amanda Berry said: “We are delighted to welcome Rebel Wilson as host of this year’s EE British Academy Film Awards. Rebel has shone at several previous film awards and we are thrilled to see her bring her fantastic charisma and humor to all shows as we celebrate the very best in film.”
That bridesmaids the actress stole the show at the 2020 ceremony when she presented the award, many people took to social media asking to be the host. Wilson also made headlines recently due to her extreme weight loss.
The event is expected to be different from last year
The 2021 version of this show was hosted by Edith Bowman and Dermot O’Leary and was staged at the Royal Albert Hall without an audience and under social distancing.
The format for the 2022 BAFTAs has yet to be announced, but a spokesperson said that if circumstances permit, they hope to host a “personal event” with an audience.
The BAFTA will also have to compete with the Critics Choice Awards in Los Angeles, which recently announced it has been rescheduled to the same night as the BAFTA. There are concerns as this causes a lot of conflict between industry figures who are likely to be nominated for both ceremonies.
