    ‘Thank you for letting me think different. I wasn’t supposed to say that. We break all the rules.’

    ‘Mum – you’re the reason why I started, why I’m here, you’re the reason I keep going. This is yours. Love peace lets get it.

    Previous winners of the award include Tom Holland, Jack O’Connell, Will Poulter, Tom Hardy, Kristen Stewart, Noel Clarke, Eva Green and James McAvoy.

    Daniel has also picked up Oscar, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for his role as Chris Washington in the 2017 horror film.

    He won the Best Actor award at the MTV Movie Awards and the NAACP Image Awards.

    Daniel is known for his roles in hit TV shows, Skins, Psychoville and Black Mirror and has also starred in films, including crime thriller Sicario, Johnny English Reborn and Kick Ass 2.

    This month he appeared in Marvel film Black Panther, followed by a co-starring role in Steve McQueen’s upcoming heist thriller Widows later this year.

    The stars turned out in force at the 2018 BAFTA award ceremony on Sunday, held at the Royal Albert Hall in London for the second year in a row, after the move from the Royal Opera House.

    The Shape of Water , directed by Guillermo del Toro, has been nominated for a total of 12 awards with Darkest Hour and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri both receiving nine nominations. Blade Runner 2049 , Dunkirk, I, Tonya , Call Me by Your Name and Phantom Thread were also nominated for multiple awards.

    Members of the Time’s Up initiative sent around a letter urging guests ‘to wear black to the awards ceremony, to follow suit from our sisters who attended the Golden Globes’.

    Just a month ago, most of the stars who attended the Golden Globes wore black in a show of solidarity towards victims of sexual harassment.

    And while the dress code was looser for the Grammys, stars walked the red carpet carrying white roses in support of gender equality.

    This year’s BAFTA Awards are being hosted by Joanna Lumley after Stephen Fry announced he was stepping down after hosting for 12 years, from 2001 to 2006 and again from 2012 to 2017. TV presenter Jonathan Ross presented during the intervening years.

    She said at the time: ‘Honestly how exciting is this? It’s just so unbelievably thrilling. I always looked at the BAFTA Awards with Stephen Fry there forever more, so who thought I’d turn into Stephen Fry? I said yes indecently quickly. Thank you, thank you, I’ll see you on the night.

    And after stepping down from his coveted position, Stephen Fry said: ‘Every one of the 12 BAFTA film award ceremonies that I had the privilege of hosting has a place in my memory.

    ‘The mixture of glamour, glory, drama and – occasionally – embarrassment and hiccup holds a unique place in the British film calendar.

    ‘Over the last two decades I have especially loved watching the emergence of new young film talent behind and in front of the camera. But after so long a time I felt it only right to stand down and let others take the Baftas on to new heights and greater glories.

    ‘I want to thank all the production staff, Amanda Berry and her wonderful Bafta colleagues, the BBC and all those who helped make every year so enjoyable.

    ‘I reserve especial gratitude and imagination for Ivor Baddiel and Phil Kerr, whose work on the scripts was so skillful it made people think I’d written every line myself.

  • South African Jazz Legend Hugh Masekela Dies at 78.

    Jan 23 • Featured, News • 457 Views

    Legendary South African jazz musician Hugh Masekela has died at the age of 78 after a decade-long fight with cancer, according to a statement from his family on Tuesday (Jan. 23). Often called the “Father of South African jazz,” Masekela died in Johannesburg after what his family said was a “protracted and courageous battle with prostate cancer.”

    Trumpeter, singer and composer Masekela, affectionately known locally as “Bra Hugh,” started playing the horn at 14 and quickly became an integral part of the 1950s jazz scene in Johannesburg as a member of the Jazz Epistles.

    In the 1960s he went into exile in the United Kingdom and the United States, where he collaborated with American jazz legend Harry Belafonte and used his music to spread awareness about the oppressive system of white-minority rule in South Africa. He also scored an international number one hit in 1968 with “Grazing In The Grass.”
