The Baftas 2014

Hosted by Stephen Fry at London’s Royal Opera House, Sunday night saw the 67th annual British Academy Film Awards taking place. With much anticipation upon who will turn out as the eventual winners, all eyes were eagerly fixed on the red carpet.

 No doubt was left as to which film took the limelight on the night, with British film Gravity receiving 11 nominations and winning a total of 6 awards. To mention a few, the space drama won best British film, best director, best cinematography and best special visual effects. 12 Years a Slave took away best picture, and British star Chiwetel Ejiofor won best actor for his role as Solomon Northup in the film. As a producer, Brad Pitt joined the line up who celebrated the film’s win.

On collecting her award Blanchett paid tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died earlier this month in New York.

Judi Dench may have narrowly lost out to Cate Blanchett as best actress, but she has set a new Bafta record with having 15 acting nominations, keep up the good work Dame Judi!

Leonardo DiCaprio, nominated for his leading role in The Wolf of Wall Street missed out on the Best Actor award, however The Great Gatsby seized two Baftas for costume and production design. The Baftas can often gauge which films go on to win Oscars later in the year, so no doubt that Leo will be crossing his fingers in hope of winning his much anticipated Oscar after being a three-time nominee!
