Rebel Wilson has the floor at the Royal Albert Hall, where the film industry's great and good will be glammed up and hoping to take home an iconic BAFTA mask. Belfast, Don't Look Up, Dune, Licorice Pizza, and The Power of the Dog are in the running for the biggest prize of the night, and you can follow our guide below as we explain how to watch a 2022 BAFTAs live stream online wherever you are.

Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi epic Dune is in the running for the most accolades, receiving nominations across 11 categories. Jane Campion's Western drama The Power of the Dog, and Kenneth Branagh's autobiographical coming-of-age flick Belfast also look poised to win big, with eight and six nominations respectively.
Flying the flag for the lesser-heralded talent, meanwhile, are Aleem Khan's heart-rending family drama After Love, Philip Barantini's anxiety-inducing Boiling Point, Ryusuke Hamaguchi's painfully contemplative Drive My Car, and Clio Barnard's precarious romantic drama Ali & Ava.
It's a two-hour show but you'll want to tune in from the start, with Shirley Bassey set to open the evening with a bombastic nod to the James Bond franchise's 60th anniversary, and CODA actress Emilia Jones set to sing Joni Mitchell's poignant folk classic, "Both Sides Now".
Read on as we explain how to watch a 2022 BAFTAs live stream from anywhere. We've also listed the BAFTAs nominees further down the page.

How to watch a 2022 BAFTAs live stream from anywhere
Unfortunately, if you try to watch your domestic coverage of the 2022 BAFTAs from somewhere outside your home country, you'll soon find a problem - geo-blocking.
That's where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It's a common problem for streamers all over the world, but there's an easy solution. The best VPN – otherwise known as a virtual private network – can alter your IP address to make it appear like you’re somewhere else. While this can be used for privacy, it can also be used to access your preferred streaming platform back home, even when you're out of the country.
