It is that time of year again for the BAFTA's.  Red carpet soaked with snow although it is full of glitz and glamour with all the stars gracing that carpet. 

Lots of lovely beautiful stars glittering away and showing us their incredible dresses and style.  Great to see George Clooney, Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper up on stage supporting the British Film industry. 

We love the BAFTAs and we hope Hugh Jackman and the cast of Les Miserables practiced their "it's an honor to be nominated" faces, because Skyfall beat Les Mis to win Outstanding British film - Judi Dench was there to collect it from Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper. Basically, being stuck between those two men = the dream.

Stephen Fry as always superb! A wonderful linguist and divine use of the English language. You could see the American actors not really getting his sense of humour. Daniel Day Lewis  eloquent as ever.  Samuel L Jackson really is the daddy of the acting world and I still go weak at the knees when I hear his voice.  

Jennifer Lawrence presented the award for Best Supporting Actor to Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained (and he deserves it, that film's amazing!) and George Clooney gave the Best Supporting Actress award to Anne Hathaway - she was really calm about it. Only joking, she got really, really emotional. As you would, if you'd just been kissed by the Clooney.  See the beautiful Anne Hathaway below. 

The Rising Star award went to Juno Temple - hooray! She's British and we're glad that appearing in St Trinians 2 wasn't all for nothing.
One of my highlights was the Fellowship Award that is given every year. It is always lovely to see Mr Kevin Spacey grace the stage for Sir Alan Parker.  A true legend, writer, director, producer, teacher and the list goes on and on.  A genius for the likes of Bugsy Malone and Fame. 
A wonderful Sunday evening spent watching a plethora of incredible actors accepting their BAFTA's with simple style and grace.  This is, after all, awards season. 
Watch out Oscars, here we come.
