THE SHOW MUST GO ON: THE BRITISH ACADEMY FILM AWARDS EXCLUSIVELY ON BBC AMERICA

-The stars come out at the UK's most glamorous red carpet event-

BBC AMERICA has the exclusive pass to the UK's biggest and most star-studded awards show, The British Academy Film Awards, Sunday, February 10, at 8:00 p.m. EST, with encore presentations at 10:00 p.m. and midnight EST.

After winning the Golden Globe� for Best Motion Picture, Drama, and with seven Oscar� nominations, Atonement leads the pack with fourteen BAFTA nominations, including Best Film, Director for Joe Wright, Adapted Screenplay, Leading Actress for Keira Knightley, Leading Actor for James McAvoy, and Supporting Actress for Saoirse Ronan.

Other BAFTA front-runners include No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood, with nine nominations each. For their performances in No Country for Old Men, Javier Bardem and Tommy Lee Jones are nominated for Supporting Actor, and Kelly Macdonald is nominated for Supporting Actress. No Country for Old Men has a nomination for Best Film plus a Director nomination for the Coen brothers. Daniel Day-Lewis is nominated for Leading Actor for his performance in There Will Be Blood, with a Supporting Actor nomination going to Paul Dano. There Will Be Blood also received nominations for Best Film and Director for Paul Thomas Anderson.

Hosted by Jonathan Ross, the BAFTAs are often a good indication of who will walk away with the industry's most coveted golden statue, the Oscar�. Last year, Helen Mirren, Forest Whitaker, and Jennifer Hudson won BAFTAs for Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress � and two weeks later, won Oscars for their performances.

The winner of the BAFTA Orange Rising Star Award, which celebrates a young star in the making, is chosen by the British public. They picked a winner with James McAvoy, the recipient of the very first Rising Star Award in 2006. Nominees this year include Shia LaBeouf (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Sienna Miller (Factory Girl), Ellen Page (Juno), Sam Riley (Control), and Tang Wei (Lust, Caution).

The BAFTAs are awarded by the British Academy of Film & Arts. The ceremony, held at the Royal Opera House in London, is sponsored by Orange and will air exclusively on BBC America. For more information about the British Academy of Film and Television Arts or the BAFTA Awards, visit www.bafta.org
