From Amy Adams to Olivia Colman here’s every incredible moment from the 2019 BAFTA Awards red carpet. 

The BAFTA Awards are both a celebration of British cinema and a chance to reward the best achievements in international film-making from the past year. 

Only here at the BAFTAs do you get the chance to celebrate the work of small British indies like Beast on the same night as the work of some of Hollywood’s best and brightest on productions such as A Star is Born, Roma and BlackKklansman

Glenn Close, nominated for Best Actress in The Wife, walked the red carpet with her co-star Jonathan Price, sadly not nominated for the film. “That’s why I wanted him to be here with me tonight,” she told Dermot O’Leary on the red carpet. “Because he is my partner in this in every way.” 

Lily Collins, at the BAFTAs to present two awards, admitted that she’s only recently caught up on all the year’s Best Picture nominees. “I have binge-watching sessions,” she told Edith Bowman on the red carpet. “I recently had the flu and I watched three or four per day… I really do think my favourite is The Favourite, and also I got to spend time with Olivia Colman on Les Miserables, so I felt very connected to that.” 

Claire Foy, nominated for Best Supporting Actress for First Man, admitted that she went straight to the red carpet without eating dinner. “I’m thinking about bangers and mash,” she told Bowman. “It’s so cold!”
