Alan Parker is the one person certain to go home happy from tonight’s big bash, as the recipient of the Bafta Fellowship. But for most other categories, it’s as open a field as there’s been for many years. No chest-beating ‘King’s Speech’ or all-conquering crowdpleaser like ‘The Artist’ this time round. With loyalties shifting from ‘Argo’ to ‘Lincoln’ to ‘Les Mis’ and back again, it’s likely to be a scattergun affair (although ‘Skyfall’ may get the Best British Film nod for services to the box office alone). Stephen Fry hosts the event from the Royal Opera House; expect the stars to turn out on force as their pre-Oscar campaigning really gathers momentum.
