BAFTAs 2020: Stars grace the red carpet at the Royal Albert Hall

BAFTAs 2020: Emilia Clarke opts for vampy chic in a low-cut sequinned gown while Zoe Kravitz shimmers in a metallic floor-length dress as they lead the glamour on the red carpet at the Royal Albert Hall

The 2020 BAFTAs kicked off on Sunday night at the Royal Albert Hall, with stars from far and wide flocking to London for a night of Hollywood glitz and glamour.

Screen stars Emilia Clarke and Zoe Kravitz pulled out all the stops for the one of the biggest events in TV and film as they led the glamour on the red carpet. 

Game Of Thrones actress Emilia, 33, ditched her typically girly fashion sense in favour of a vampy appearance, while Big Little Lies’ Zoe, 31, exuded sophistication in a metallic gold floor-length dress. 


Wow-factor! Screen stars Emilia Clarke (L) and Zoe Kravitz (R) pulled out all the stops for the one of the biggest events in TV and film as they led the glamour on the glitzy red carpet

Highlighting her sensational figure, Emilia caught the eye in a low-scoop gown, complete with a pair of towering ankle-strap heels for height.

The media personality maintained her dark-themed look with a smouldering brown make-up look, featuring smokey eyeshadow, matte foundation and nude lipgloss to add a pop of colour.

With her tresses swept into a sleek bun, the brunette ensured focus remained on her outfit as she opted for minimal accessories by just sporting blue crystal dangle earrings.

Catwoman actress Zoe injected the event with even elegance as she slipped into a gold long-sleeved number, which accentuated her slender figure.

Looking good: The Los Angeles native slicked down her pixie cut while bringing out her out-of-this-world beauty with a dewy base and fierce red lipstick

The Los Angeles native slicked down her pixie cut while bringing out her out-of-this-world beauty with a dewy base and fierce red lipstick.

Coordinating with her make-up look in the accessory department, the TV and film star rounded off her outfit with drop earrings and a fresh patent manicure. 

And Taron Egerton, who was nominated for the Leading Actor gong for his role as Elton John in biopic Rocketman, looked every inch the leading man at the event. 



Here come the girls! Bad Education star Gillian Anderson (L) nailed prom chic in a strapless flared midi dress, while Bond Girl Naomie Harris (C) stood out in a slinky silver number and Kellie Shirley (R) put on a leggy display in a feathered LBD


Out in full force: Leading Actor nominee Taron Egerton enjoyed a date night with girlfriend Emily Thomas (L) while presenter Dermot O’Leary joined longtime pal Edith Bowman (R)



Here come the boys! Host of the evening Graham Norton (L) appeared in great spirits as he hit the red carpet alongside fellow presenter Dermot (C) and film producer Dan Lim (R) 

The Kingsman star, 30, was joined by his stunning girlfriend Emily Thomas, where he looked dapper in a crushed velvet purple tuxedo which he teamed with a crisp white shirt, black bow tie and patent leather dress shoes.

Emily looked effortlessly chic in an asymmetrical black floor-length gown which showcased her svelte figure. The assistant director styled her brunette locks into a glossy curly blow-dried hairdo, she added a slick of glamorous make-up. 

Before the critically-acclaimed thespians hit the red carpet, DJ and presenter Vick Hope was the first to make her grand entrance, where she turned heads in a sweeping – and very leggy – red ball gown, featuring a one-shouldered design and made in a mixture of fabrics. 

She added gold heels to the look and matched the dress to her lipstick, with a dramatic pop of rouge. Vick swept her sleek raven locks back into a side parting and showcased drop-earrings for a touch of sparkle. 

The 2020 ceremony is the 73rd annual EE British Academy Film Awards and is considered the UK’s most prestigious awards ceremony. It is also the last event to take place ahead of the Oscars. 

The ceremony will be hosted by Graham Norton, taking over the role from Joanna Lumley, who hosted for two years prior.

Joker is this year’s frontrunner with a whopping 11 nominations, while The Irishman and Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood are close behind with 10 nods each. 

The supervillain origin story, which stars Joaquin Phoenix and is directed by Todd Phillips, looks set to dominate on the night, and will compete for Best Film alongside Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino’s latest films, as well as 1917, and Parasite.

Focused on how the Clown Prince Of Crime came to be, the box-office hit also earned nods in the categories for Best Director, Leading Actor, Adapted Screenplay, Editing, Production Design, Make Up and Hair and Sound.


Kicking things off: First to arrive was DJ and presenter Vick Hope, who was sure to make her grand entrance ahead of the stars of the silver screen that would soon be joining her on the red carpet

Racy ensemble: The dress featured a large bow on the shoulder and teased the Capital FM star’s lithe pins



Got the look: She added gold heels and matched the dress to her lipstick, with a dramatic pop of rouge. Vick swept her sleek raven locks back into a side parting and showcased drop-earrings for a touch of sparkle


Behind-the-scenes: Vick will be presenting live and interactive on Facebook with the stars on the 2020 #EEBAFTAs red carpet

This is Joaquin’s fourth nomination by BAFTA, and while he is the frontrunner he faces tough competition in the Lead Actor category from Adam Driver (Marriage Story), Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood), Taron Egerton (Rocketman), and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes).

The Master actor’s chances of taking home his first BAFTA are very high, given he has already earned a Golden Globe and a SAG award earlier this month.

In the Supporting Actor category, Brad Pitt is hotly-tipped to win for Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood after having similar success to Joaquin, but will go up against Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood), Sir Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes) Al Pacino and Joe Pesci (both for The Irishman).  

Meanwhile, Margot Robbie is set to go up against herself in the Supporting Actress category, earning nominations for her work on both Bombshell and Tarantino’s latest flick about the golden age of Hollywood. 

Although her odds are increased with two nods, Laura Dern is the favourite to win for her role as cutthroat lawyer Nora Fanshaw in Marriage Story, while Florence Pugh (Little Women), and Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit) are also nominated.

Scarlett is another star sitting on two nominations, and if she is unable to scoop the Supporting Actress gong, she could have luck in the Lead Actress category, where she is up for her work in Netflix drama Marriage Story.

She will go up against Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women), and Charlize Theron (Bombshell), but it is Renee Zellweger (Judy) who is likely to win given her success in recent months.

Outstanding British Film is set to be tightly fought category, with 1917, Bait, For Sama, Rocketman, Sorry We Missed You, and The Two Popes going head-to-head.

1917’s Sam Mendes has earned a Best Director nomination, and he will compete against Phillips, Scorsese, Tarantino, and Bong Joon-ho (Parasite).

If the BAFTAs follow the same path as the Golden Globes, it will be a good night for Mendes’ World War I movie, as that scooped both Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director at the Hollywood ceremony.

This year’s ceremony also saw the introduction of a new category for Casting, while producer Kathleen Kennedy will be granted the BAFTA Fellowship Award and Andy Serkis will be honoured for his Outstanding Contribution to Cinema. 

While the prestigious EE Rising Star Award were announced, with Awkwafina, Jack Lowden, Kaitlyn Dever, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Micheal Ward in the running. 

BAFTA winners and nominees are voted for by 6,500 BAFTA members, comprised of industry professionals and creatives around the world. 

Members vote to decide the nominations from hundreds of films in round one, then vote for the winner from the shortlist in round two.
