Baftas delayed for two months over coronavirus crisis

FILM stars will don Spring fashion at next year’s Baftas now the ceremony has been pushed back two months due to coronavirus.

The event was due to take place in London on February 14 but has been moved to April 11.

The change ‘acknowledges the impact of the global pandemic and accommodates an extended eligibility period’, organisers said.

The awards will revert to their normal February date in 2022.

Earlier, the 2021 Oscars were rescheduled to April 28 to give film-makers flexibility to ‘finish and release movies without being penalised for something beyond anyone’s control’.
