BBC AMERICA will air The EE British Academy Film Awards in primetime on Sunday, February 10 at 9:00pm ET/PT. The ceremony will be hosted by Joanna Lumley and will be held in one of the world’s most beautiful concert halls, the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone star in The Favourite – the third film from Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of the Sacred Deer.)
Set in the early 18th century – with England at war with France – Lady Sarah (Weisz) is essentially running the government for the frail and altogether there Queen Anne (Colman) when an ambitious new servant, Abigail (Stone) arrives.
The Favourite will open in select theaters on November 23rd.
