This year's BAFTA Awards host Stephen Fry has given his highly-regarded two pennies' worth on the 2012 BAFTA nominations.

In the video above, Fry explains why he's happy John Hurt, "who's not celebrated enough" is getting some recognition and why Bridesmaids and The Artist both deserve a gong.

The Sherlock Homes: A Game Of Shadows star also speaks of his appreciation for Martin Scorsese, saying: "I don't there will be a single person in the room (at the Awards) who doesn't think he is one of the greatest contributors to cinema there has ever been."
