Recently engaged, Emily Blunt, was radiant in her burgundy dress on the red carpet for this year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts Britannia awards. The actress took home the prize for British artist of the year and said of her award, “To be honored with something that’s so emblematic of where I’m from is really exciting.”

Her co-star from The Wolfman, Benicio del Toro, was just one of many gents on the red carpet in a dapper tuxedo. Colin Firth was presented with a humanitarian award and also gets two thumbs-up from us for his impeccable ensemble.

Hollywood legends, Robert De Niro and Kirk Douglas, were also recognized with De Niro awarded the Stanley Kubrick award for excellence in film for his worldwide contribution to filmed entertainment.

Also, it would appear that the young Slumdog Millionaire real-life couple of Dev Patel and Freida Pinto are still going strong.
