2020 EE British Academy Film Awards

Sunday, February 2 at 4:00pm ET LIVE #EEBAFTAs

On February 2, Canadians can cuddle up with a cuppa to watch Britain hand out the hardware to this year’s upper crust in film acting, directing and writing during the BAFTAs. Award-winning presenter, comedian, and author Graham Norton debuts as host. Considered a leading indicator of who might win at the Oscars, this year’s ceremony will air as live from London’s historic Royal Albert Hall.

Joker tops the nominations followed by The Irishman, Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood, 1917, Jojo Rabbit and Little Women. Jessie Buckley, Florence Pugh, Taron Egerton, Johnathon Pryce Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Laura Dern, Scarlett Johansson, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Adam Driver are among the actor noms.

2020 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Saturday, February 8 at 5:00 pm ET LIVE #SpiritAwards

On February 8, grab a margarita and your beach chair as Hollywood Suite broadcasts the Film Independent Spirit Awards. The cooler, grittier, younger sibling to the Academy Awards celebrates underdogs and indie darlings, and is hosted for the second year in a row by actor, filmmaker and comedian Aubrey Plaza. Broadcast live from a tent on Santa Monica Beach, the event serves as a relaxed lead-up to the Oscars the next day.

A Hidden Life, The Lighthouse, Hustlers, Honey Boy, Clemency, Marriage Story and Uncut Gems are all contenders, with notable Oscar snubs J-Lo, Adam Sandler, Shia Labeouf and Alfre Woodard among those being recognized with acting noms.
