Read on: Deadline.

The 2020 awards season just got a little more congested. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts today announced that its 2020 film awards will be held on Sunday 2 February. As anticipated, this keeps BAFTA ahead of the Oscars, which are moving to February 9 that year, but only by one week. BAFTA had previously said it would consult within the industry about a new 2020 date for its film ceremony but reiterated its desire to remain ahead of the Academy Awards
