The wait is finally over, as this year's BAFTA 2022 nominations have been confirmed. 

Recently, we found out that the ceremony would be hosted by comedian Rebel Wilson, and will take place on Sunday, Mar. 13, 2022 at the Royal Albert Hall.

But now, we know which films are up for these coveted awards and there are some big names including The Power of the Dog, Dune, Titane, and No Time to Die reflecting the great achievements in cinema over the past few months.

With all these films and stars officially announced, we'll just have to wait until the spring to find out who will be walking away with the golden masks this year during the awards' 75th anniversary.
