It’s the busiest day of awards season with two major ceremonies today (February 12). Follow Anglophenia on Twitter for live coverage of the British Academy Film Awards as they air in the UK, starting at 4 pm ET. And tune in to BBC America at 8 pm ET to watch the telecast, which will be the last major film awards ceremony prior to the Oscars.

Also, stay with us on Twitter for live coverage of the Grammys starting at 7 pm ET. America’s biggest musical event of the year is certain to take a somber tone, following the tragic passing of pop icon Whitney Houston yesterday. But there is a lot for Brit-watchers to look out for: Adele is a favorite to take the top awards and will cap her titanic 2011 with her first live performance in months after throat surgery. Sir Paul McCartney, recipient of the 2012 MusiCares Person of the Year award, will also perform, and Coldplay will take the stage with pop star Rihanna.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
