PREPARATIONS are well underway at the Royal Opera House ahead of the annual British Academy Film Awards this weekend.
Stars of stage and screen will pack the famous old building in Covent Garden on Sunday evening for the annual glittering Bafta ceremony.
Among those expected to grace the awards include Best Actor nominees George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Gary Oldman and Jean Dujardin. They will be greeted outside by the red carpet host – Miss Piggy.
“Imagine the likes of Clooney, Dujardin, Fassbender, Oldman and Pitt achieving the very pinnacle of their careers by getting a chance to speak with the one and only moi ’’ she said. “Naturally, I will be asking questions that only moi would dare to ask.”
Thankfully, perhaps, Stephen Fry will be the main presenter for the awards show.
