About the EE British Academy Awards partnership
The awards ceremony was originally sponsored by Orange for sixteen years until new parent brand EE launched in 2012. EE became the title sponsor in 2013 continuing one of the longest standing brand partnerships in the entertainment industry. This year’s ceremony, which took place 12 February 2017, was the fifth year that EE was the headline partner and the first time since becoming part of BT Group.
Since EE took over the title sponsorship, the red carpet at the British Academy Film Awards has been the test-bed for countless innovations from the UK’s largest mobile communications company. From an innovative, live 360 degree red carpet show and exclusive influencer content to allowing film fans to interview the stars live from their living room by beaming them onto 4G-enabled EE Fanbots, EE uses the event to showcase its award-winning 4G network and bring fans and customers closer to the action.
