BAFTAs set for Feb. 19

Moved to avoid clash with Chinese's New Year bash

LONDON — Next year’s British Academy Film Awards will take place Feb. 19.

The ceremony has shifted back to Sunday night, after experimenting with a Saturday date this year to avoid a clash with Chinese New Year celebrations in London’s West End.

The BAFTAs also have moved a week later, mirroring the Oscars and thus maintaining a two-week gap between the two events.
