Hey, Hollywood: Feeling the need to rock a red carpet? Hop a flight to London.
With the lingering writers’ strike casting a cloud of uncertainty over next month’s Oscars, Britain’s BAFTA Awards could provide many actors with the only international platform to strut their stuff.
So perhaps it’s no surprise that a clutch of heavy-hitters are expected to grace the glamorous Feb. 10 event.
Meanwhile nominees Keira Knightley, Daniel Day-Lewis, James McAvoy and Viggo Mortensen are all expected to take their places at London’s Royal Opera House.
Organizers are expected to release a final list of confirmed nominees and presenters in a few days.
