BAFTA has set actor Stephen Fry as host for its 2014 awards ceremony on February 16. This marks Fry's ninth (!) time hosting the show. Of the new hosting gig, Fry stated: "Despite the nerves and terror that something might go wrong and that I’ll make a fool of myself, it’s an annual event I really look forward to. I think it’s fundamentally because I love film so much." Fry is absolutely our favorite BAFTA host, and may he continue his delightfully witty reign. (And we love his @stephenfry tweets,too.) »
