David Tennant's extensive career in film, television and radio includes Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Good Omens, Broadchurch, and Doctor Who, a role for which he is admired world over. His critically acclaimed performances in theatre include Much Ado About Nothing, Richard II, Hamlet, and currently Macbeth. The multi-talented and award-winning actor will this year bring his inimitable talent to the Royal Festival Hall stage to host Britain's biggest night in film.

Jane Millichip, CEO of BAFTA, said: "We are over the moon that David Tennant will be our host for the 2024 EE BAFTA Film Awards. He is deservedly beloved by British and international audiences, alike. His warmth, charm and mischievous wit will make it a must-watch show next month for our guests at the Royal Festival Hall and the millions of people watching at home.

"The EE BAFTA Film Awards recognise exceptional films and the talented people who make them. More than 7500 of our BAFTA members – creatives from all corners of the British and global film industry – have been voting over the holidays and we will be publishing their chosen longlists later today. We hope it will inspire people to watch more films and encourage everyone to join in the conversation on who should win a BAFTA next month."

David Tennant, said: "I am delighted to have been asked to host the EE BAFTA Film Awards and help celebrate the very best of this year's films and the many brilliant people who bring them to life."
