The annual British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards 2017 was a celebratory gathering among top-notch and rising stars of the industry. The event welcomed distinguished individuals of the film and television industry and was graced by the special royal appearances by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
For a change, this year’s award ceremony was held at the Royal Albert Hall. The red carpet was rolled out to welcome this year’s highly anticipated actors and actresses with opening performance by Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna.
Eddie Redmayne, dressed in white tuxedo and black pants, were one of the first few stars to grace the red carpet event with his wife Hannah. Such an adoring pair! Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them earned five nominations this year. Facing strong competition in each category, the movie eventually emerged winning the Best Production Design award. Later on, one could not help noticing that both Eddie and Andrew Garfield wore matching suits. In fact, Robbie Pattinson also donned the same outfit at the dinner too, the previous day.
Along with Eddie Redmayne, director David Yates and author and screenwriter J.K. Rowling also attended the ceremony. Needless to say, the Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter fans went wild reaching out to them for autographs.
Tom Holland, the ever hilarious Spiderman, who is about to turn 20 years old, has already earned himself an EE Rising Star award at BAFTAs 2017. Fans are definitely awaiting for his own Spiderman movie Spider-Man: Homecoming set to hit the theatres this year. Congratulations to this rising British star!
During the red carpet event, there were also dazzling appearances by Amy Adams, who made it quick through the red carpet such as
Nicole Kidman, with her movie Lion,
Michelle Williams, who arrived later than others and made it snappy across the red carpet with a wide smile, Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and others.
While we may not have caught these stars in person, we captured Daisy Ridley’s bright smile on the red carpet as she interacted with her fans,
and Dev Patel who insisted to sign for his fans before leaving for the ceremony. Congratulations to the winners and all the best for the Academy Awards to be held later in the month!
