Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson with his Bafta The Baftas
The Baftas are the biggest film awards in Britain. They're run by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

They are held in February, right before the Oscars in March. The films that win big at the Baftas are usually tipped to do the same across the Atlantic.

There's all the usual awards, like best film and best actors and actresses.

But the most prestigious award is The Fellowship. It's given for outstanding achievement in films to people like Steven Spielberg, Sir Michael Caine and Charlie Chaplin.

The Baftas have been sponsored by Orange since 1998, and a new award's been brought in since - the Orange Film of the Year, which is the only Bafta voted for by the public.
