    Live Blog: EE British Academy Film Awards

    12 February 2016

    Lloyd Evans, Melissa Kite, Jasper Rees, Emily Hill and Toby Young live blog the red carpet and the highlight show on BBC1.

    Impossible to predict what the highlights will be with absolute certainty, but expect some terrible jokes from host Stephen Fry, a rambling, incoherent speech from Leonardo DiCaprio in which he’ll lambast the oil companies for despoiling the environment before flying back to Hollywood on a private jet, and at least one misguided apology for the lack of black nominees from a well-meaning middle-aged luvvie that ends up causing widespread offence. Maybe Fry will step on that landmine. Or maybe he’ll make a bad joke about sidestepping it.
