Baftas 2022: Who won at the Baftas last night, who hosted the Baftas 2022

The 75th Bafta awards took place last night, with the ceremony seeing the stars returning to the red carpet for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was a night of surprises at the 75th British Academy Film Awards, as the ceremony paid homage to film’s rising stars, Hollywood a-listers, directors and the production teams behind the year’s most popular movies and cinematic triumphs.

The awards season is now firmly underway in the film world, as the industry begins to bounce back from a turbulent couple of years which saw movie after movie affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Huge Hollywood names such as Lady Gaga, Salma Hayek and Florence Pugh all dazzled on the red carpet, as the best cinematic talent came together to celebrate a triumphant return for film.

As always, it was an entertaining evening at the Royal Albert Hall - Harry Potter actress Emma Watson did her best Björk impression by donning a dress akin to a swan, Benedict Cumberbatch was made a cake and Vladimir Putin was flipped the bird by the host of the awards.

Who hosted at the Baftas 2022?

The 75th Bafta award ceremony audience were treated to the dry wit and mischievous nature of Australian actress and comedian Rebel Wilson, who hosted the first in person event since 2020.

Taking over from last year’s ‘virtual ceremony’ hosts Clara Amfo, Dermot O'Leary and Edith Bowman, the 42-year-old had made a previous appearance at the 2020 Baftas, presenting the award for Best Director with a gag-filled speech – and she continued in a similar vein, taking shots at everyone, including the the royal family, Boris Johnson and Robert Pattinson.
