As previously announced, the BAFTA Film Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday February 16 at London’s Royal Opera House. Word comes today that nominations are to be unveiled on January 8, the same day that Oscar nominations voting ends. That gives BAFTA voters an extra week to complete their ballots as compared to this year when nominations were announced on January 9 and the awards ceremony held on February 10. The January 8 nominations date is also more than a week ahead of the Oscar nominations which next year fall on January 16. To be eligible for the BAFTAs, a film must be released theatrically in the UK between January 1 and December 31, 2013. Films released between January 1 and February 14, 2014 may also qualify by being screened for members no later than December 19, 2013.
