The 2022 BAFTAs, which is the 75th EE British Academy Film Awards, are all set to take place this March 2022. Audiences can expect coverage of the red carpet, OTT speeches, and more for the very first time since 2020. The BAFTA Awards will go ahead as an in-person event.

The honorable president of BAFTA since 2010, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton will be seen attending the glorious event after 2020. Unlike last year, the prestigious event will witness little to no virtual participation. However, there will be concessions for international nominees who won't be able to attend the event due to COVID concerns and restrictions.

Who will be hosting the ceremony this year?

Australian comedian and actress Rebel Wilson is all set to serve as the host of the 2022 BAFTAs. The Pitch Perfect star has expressed her joy at getting the opportunity to host this year's BAFTAs, saying:

"It's going to be so much fun! I don't wanna put any pressure on this - I know I'm not going to be funny because I am no longer fat. And besides, I'm not going to 'sweat-it' with nerves because I have a peculiar medical condition where I can't sweat...or cause offence to people because of my adorable Australian accent.

Speaking about who she's excited to meet, the comedian added (via Hello Magazine):

So basically I'll just be there to hang out with Dame Judi Dench and together we'll both try and bond with Daniel Craig. And yes, I do mean 'bond'."
