While we in the states were busy celebrating the music industry last night with the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, the folks across the pond were busy celebrating the best in film-making with the 2013 British Academy Of Film & Television Arts Awards.
Many movies fans look to the BAFTAs to see if it can shed any light on who might win a coveted Academy Award in just a few weeks. Two things are for sure: Anne Hathaway will be getting a Best Supporting Actress award, the award she won at the BAFTAs, and Daniel Day-Lewis will score another Best Actor Oscar as he was the winner in that category last night.
Argo took home the top prize for Best Film, while Ben Affleck picked up a BAFTA for Best Director. He’s basically won every directing award this year and he’s not even nominated for an Oscar. Crazy pants. You can check out the full list of winners after the jump! But enough about the awards, let’s talk fashion!
My best dressed pick for the night is a toss up between Jessica Chastain in that GORGEOUS blue gown and Marion Cotillard looking stunning in yellow. I just can’t pick! Plus, how good does Helen Mirren look!
The men weren’t too shabby either. Henry Cavill literally made the red carpet sizzle in his sexy tux, while George Clooney and Ben Affleck brought some bearded sex appeal to the show. Overall, this was a very well dressed award show!
Launch the gallery to check out all the best photos from the red carpet! What do you think of the winners? Any upsets in your book? Check out the list below and let us know in the comments! And don’t forget to tell us who you think is best dressed!
