Welcome to the 68th annual BAFTA Awards! The Royal Opera House in London was shining bright on Feb. 8 as many of Britain and Hollywood’s biggest stars arrived to celebrate their nominations and films this year. See below for tons of pics from the red carpet!
So many stunning looks and talents, it’s hard to even know where to look. The red carpet for the 68th BAFTA Awards was full to the brim with incredible stars who made incredible films in 2015. Among those who walked the red carpet were hunks Benedict Cumberbatch, David Beckham and Tom Hiddleston. But the ones who really made a splash were the ladies.
68th Annual BAFTA Awards Red Carpet 2015
Reese Witherspoon turned heads in one of her most glamorous looks of the award season. The nominee and Wild star looked anything but at the big night in a plunging purple fitted gown with no jewelry to distract onlookers from her show-stopping cleavage.
Meanwhile, Amy Adams went for a very sleek and chic style for her moment across the pond. While more conservative than we’ve seen her in lately, Amy made sure her cream colored, floor length dress had a blinged-out belt that anyone could see along the carpet. She also opted out of wearing any outlandish jewelry — but then again with that many studs on her belt, who needs it!
And lest us not forget Rosamund Pike, a girl we hope never goes too far from any red carpet. She dazzled in a long, black, flowing halter dress that allowed her shoulders to steal the show. Very glamorous indeed!
BAFTA Awards 2015 – Who Will Win Big?
At the time of the red carpet, the coveted BAFTA Award was literally for the taking for many absurdly talented projects. Though leading the pack with 11 nominations, The Grand Budapest Hotel may have a hard time competing against challengers Birdman and The Imitation Game, both with 10.
But if you ask us, the real coup will be if The LEGO Movie, which was brutally snubbed by The Oscars, wins a BAFTA for Best Animation. Hopefully, the Brits will get it right and give the film the recognition it so rightfully deserves. That would make everything, well, awesome!
What say you, Hollywoodlifers? Are you loving the BAFTAs so far?
