12 February 2012 9:32 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

How to watch the 2012 BAFTA Awards live-streaming online? Well, if you're in the United Kingdom, you might want to check out BBC3 at 7:30 p.m. London time for the red carpet arrivals (featuring a Louis Vuitton-clad Miss Piggy), and BBC1 at 9:00 p.m. London time for the actual BAFTA ceremony at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. If you're elsewhere, things get more complicated. [Addendum: The BAFTA ceremony can be watched here right now. Watch BAFTA 2012 online live-streaming red carpet arrivals here, and later check out BAFTA 2012 winners.] There's also the BAFTA Awards online YouTube channel, though it's unclear whether they'll provide live coverage of the red carpet/awards ceremony or if clips will be posted there (however shortly) after the fact. Right now, all the BAFTA YouTube page says is the following: "The Orange British Academy Film Awards are on 12 February 2012. Watch our exclusive coverage right here, in the build up and on the night." Additionally, Stephen Fry provides some added tips on the video clip below (please scroll down). [Addendum: No live coverage at either site so far, as the red carpet arrivals have already begun.] Else, »
