The ceremony, held at the Royal Albert Hall in London, will be broadcast on BBC One and iPlayer.
Wilson succeeds Edith Bowman and Dermot O’Leary, who hosted last year’s semi-virtual edition.
The actress had already brought down the BAFTA house in 2020 with this speech:
The BAFTA nominations will be revealed on February 3. The long lists were released this week.
Yesterday the Critics’ Choice Awards confirmed that due to TV scheduling they will be moving on the same date as BAFTA, a potentially tricky question for the talents nominated at both awards shows.
“I am very honored to be hosting the EE British Academy Film Awards in March, where Covid will no longer exist as it will clearly have been canceled by then. It’s gonna be so much fun! I don’t want to put pressure on this – I know I’m not going to be funny because I’m not fat anymore.
“And besides, I’m not going to ‘sweat it’ with nerves because I have a particular medical condition where I can’t sweat…or offend people because of my lovely Aussie accent.” So basically I’m just going to be there to hang out with Dame Judi Dench and together we’ll both try to bond with Daniel Craig. And yes, I mean “link”. This show will be an anniversary celebration of some important British film franchises such as ‘Harry Potter’ and not like ‘Cats.’ Everyone will love it, I’m sure! See you in March,” said Rebel Wilson.
Amanda Berry OBE, Managing Director of BAFTA, added: “We are delighted to welcome Rebel Wilson as host of this year’s EE British Academy Film Awards. Rebel has stolen the show at several previous Film Awards, and we’re extremely happy to see her bring her fantastic charisma and humor to the entire show as we celebrate the best in cinema. »
