The awards are sponsored for the tenth year in a row by mobile phone company Orange. BBC One will broadcast the event in the UK. In 2006, the awards were broadcast to 231 international territories.

The awards will be two weeks before the Oscars, which are slated for February 25, 2007. This year’s Baftas were held on February 19, also two weeks before the March 5 Oscars.

The awards ceremony has yet to announce host after the withdrawal of Stephen Fry.
