The 2014 EE British Academy Film Awards will take place on Feb. 16, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced today. This announcement comes right after news that the 2014 Oscars will take place on March 2. It also means that the BAFTA Awards will take place while the Winter Olympics are still going on in Sochi, Russia.
This year, the BAFTA successfully predicted Oscar winners for best film, actor, and supporting actor and actress. (However, Emmanuelle Riva won best actress and Ben Affleck took home best director at the British awards.)
