BAFTA Has the Look of Old Hollywood (PHOTOS)
Maybe you caught the BAFTA Film Awards on BBC America last night (but we're guessing you probably didn't.) The British Academy's addition to the ongoing awards season had the high-class air of Old Hollywood; here's, a glimpse of the glamour on the red carpet, in the auditorium and behind the stage.
Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette take a joint selfie in the auditorium before the show starts. She snagged the Best Supporting Actress statuette for Boyhood and the film cleaned up with honors for Best Film and Best Director (Richard Linklater.) Hawke's Best Supporting Actor nomination didn't pan out, but he (along with Arquette and Linklater) will get another chance at trophies come Oscar time.
Eddie Redmayne flashes a million-dollar (or million-pound?) grin backstage after his Best Actor win. His performance in The Theory of Everything also nabbed him a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination. (Are you sensing a trend?)
Cuba Gooding Jr. wears his sunglasses at night inside the auditorium. (He took them off while landing a surprise kiss on Stephen Fry.)
While backstage, Natalie Dormer sports lace gloves and a look more akin to conniving Margaery Tyrell (her Game of Thrones character.)
Mark Ruffalo and his wife, Sunshine, on the red carpet. Ruffalo didn't win Best Supporting Actor for his part in Foxcatcher, but he can try again at the Oscars. (And he's not empty handed—he won a Best Supporting Actor SAG Award for his part in The Normal Heart.)
Kristin Scott Thomas's pose might cover her face, but it sure shows off her sparkling accessories.
