The BAFTAs are the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards which took place on February 18, 2024.

The 2023 BAFTAs were hosted by Ariana DeBose who did a female empowerment rap, which led to people saying it was “mortifying” and “awkward.” 

During the BAFTAs Michael J. Fox, star of Back to the Future, made an appearance and presented the best film award to Oppenheimer. The star who is now 62 years old was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and rarely makes public appearances anymore.
