The BAFTAS Get Joanna Lumley as Host Again

This coming weekend kicks off the first round of Awards Shows with the Golden Globes taking place on Sunday January 6th, hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg. While we still don't know who will be hosting the Academy Awards (aka the Oscars) later in the year after that whole Kevin Hart thing, we DO know that actress Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous) will be returning to host the BAFTA Awards.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool. 

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

 Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

 Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
