    234

    With 25 James Bond themes over the last 60 years, the 007 franchise has an impressive back catalogue. But no one has performed more than Dame Shirley Bassey. After her iconic debut with Goldfinger, the Welsh legend went on to perform Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker.

    Since the Bond film franchise kicked off with Dr No in 1962, the 007 movies have gone on to be nominated for 32 BAFTAs with 4 wins to date.

    No Time To Die is up for five BAFTAs this year including Outstanding British Film, which Skyfall won in 2013.

    Meanwhile, Emilia Jones will also perform at the awards show, singing a rendition of Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now, taken from her performance in the film CODA.

    The BAFTAS will broadcast at 7pm on Sunday March 13 on BBC One, BBC One HD and BBC iPlayer.
