Robert Pattinson Heading to the BAFTA’s As a Presenter? The Ads Certainly Suggest The Possibility

Unlike the Golden Globes and the OSCARS that do weeks of PR for their awards including name dropping presenters at regularly scheduled intervals, the BAFTA’s are more low-key. You discover who is presenting maybe days before. The show airs on February 13th.

Here’s who we think is likely to be there from the Twilight cast in a presenting role assuming Breaking Dawn filming allows:

Robert Pattinson: As a UK Robert Pattinson site points out his face is splashed all over their promotional ads in the London Tube and in their TV adverts. He presented last year and with Water for Elephants, Bel Ami, and Breaking Dawn coming out this year he’s a big attraction. Also given his age, it’s a way to get younger viewers to tune in.

Kristen Stewart: Last year she won the Rising Star Award. It’s a bit of a tradition for the previous year’s winner to present the statue to the current year’s winner. See video below.

Michael Sheen: He’s producing a Passion Play for his hometown in Wales, Port Talbot. In the fall he’s slated to do Hamlet at the Old Vic, and then there are all the mega-hits he’s in from Alice in Wonderland to Tron to Breaking Dawn and then the smaller films like Midnight in Paris that’s currently in production.  He’s practically the poster boy for local Welsh Boy Makes Good.

Long shot: Jamie Campbell-Bower is making a name for himself starring as King Arthur in the upcoming Camelot. He’s also in the final Harry Potter movies. We’re actually wondering if Jamie might appear as a future Rising Star nominee.

Anna Kendrick: She was there last year for Up in the Air. She’s also a bit of an anglophile following UK shows like The X-Factor where she made a guest appearance this season.

Where to Spot Twilight Stars in Awards Shows in 2011

It’s Awards Season, and the People’s Choice Awards just kicked things off last night.  Here is a list on where you can expect to see Twilight cast members in the near future.

Golden Globe Awards: Robert Pattinson has been tapped as a presenter, no idea for what, but he’s on the list of those attending. According to the official site , “The show once again will be broadcast nationwide live on NBC, in HD, Sunday, January 16, 2011 from 5:00-8:00 (PST)/8:00-11:00 (EST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel. ” Expect more presenters to be announced as we get closer to the show.

BAFTA Awards (AKA the British Academy Film and Television Awards). Last year Kristen Stewart won their Rising Star Award. It’s traditional for the previous year’s winner to present the trophy to this year’s winner. It hasn’t been officially announced(BAFTAs tend not to announce their presenters, but the info kind of leaks out) , but look for Kristen to make an appearance.  They also tend to try for the brightest stars from the UK to present on the show. Look for Robert Pattinson (who presented an award last year) and Michael Sheen as strong candidates for presenters. Another BAFTA possibility is Welcome to the Riley’s director, Jake Scott, getting nominated in the Outstanding Debut of a British Writer, Director, or Producer category. The show takes place February 13th, look for award nominees to be announced on January 18th.

The Oscars last year Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner co-presented as part of producer Adam Shankman’s efforts to youthenize the show and make it more fun.  With a film like Water for Elephants (that is getting early buzz as 2012 contender) coming out next year that co-star OSCAR winners Christoph Waltz and Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson might end up as a co-presenter. Another one to look out for is last year’s nominee Anna Kendrick to be tapped as a presenter. The show airs February 27th, and nominees will be announced on January 25th.

These are just the awards in the winter. Once Spring and Summer hit we enter the MTV award season: VMA’s, Movie Awards, etc. You know there will be a heavy cast presence there beyond the trio of Robert Kristen and Taylor.

Michael Sheen Mentions Breaking Dawn to TV Guide

Michael was awarded the a BAFTA Britannia Awards and he talked to TV Guide on the Red Carpet.

You can get full coverage of Michael’s witty and very off-color speech that pretty much brought the house down in laughter that night over at Hitfix.

When the main BAFTAs come out later this year look for Welcome To the Rileys to score some nominations because director Jake Scott is a Brit. Also look for Kristen Stewart to make a reappearance and to give out the Rising Star Award.
