LONDON (AFP) - Gravity leads the nominations for the Baftas on Sunday, but the harrowing 12 Years A Slave is tipped to win the top honours at the last major awards ceremony before the Oscars.

Hollywood stars are due to pack out the Royal Opera House in London for the glitzy red carpet event, attended by Prince William and hosted for a ninth time by actor Stephen Fry.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards are a useful guide to which way the Academy Awards might go on Mar 2.

Last year Argo won for best film, Daniel Day-Lewis for best actor, and Christoph Waltz and Anne Hathaway in the best supporting categories - awards replicated at the Oscars.
