The royal family and the BAFTAs

The royal family have long had a connection with the awards ceremony, Prince Philip was appointed its first president in 1959.

His grandson- Prince William, became president in 2010, and has attended the awards ceremony three times.

The Queen was presented an honorary award in recognition of her outstanding patronage of the film and television industries in 2013.

Do BAFTA winners go home with anything?

An Oscar winner gets a huge cash bonus, an impressive swag bag filled with goodies worth tens of thousands of pounds, holidays and car rentals.

The BAFTA award on the other hand is a lot more restrained! though unclear whether winners receive any money for the award, all nominees receive a fabulous goodie bag filled with treats.

In 2018, this included a bottle of Champagne Taittinger Brut Réserve NV, Lancôme La Vie Est Belle L’Éclat perfume and a Swarovski Crystalline ink pen.
