The best looks of the BAFTA Awards 2020

Trying to ward off the usual British downpours, the Royal Albert Hall of London played the prestigious hosts this weekend, welcoming all the Hollywood gratin to the occasion of the ceremony of Bafta Awards, the equivalent of the Oscars and the Caesar in Great Britain. And although the jury’s verdict is at the center of our concerns, we can’t resist the urge to review the parade of stars on the red carpet.

The BAFTAs, a controversial ceremony

Equivalent to the Caesar and the Oscars in the United Kingdom, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, in French “British Academy of Television and Film Arts”, awards prizes in the fields of film, television and video games. While the ceremony is open to all cinematography, there is a specific category for the best British film.

This year, the BAFTAs have very logically seen actors like Joaquin Phoenix, named best actor for his performance in “Joker“, Adam Driver, Hugh Grant, Robert de Niro, Charlize Theron, Emilia Clarke or Margot Robbie.

One week away from the US Oscars, the BAFTAs have come under heavy criticism for their lack of diversity on social media with the hashtag #BaftaSoWhite (Bafta so white). Ceremonial President Pippa Harris also lamented the lack of nominations for women in the Best Director category, despite “representing the future of the industry”. Joaquin Phoenix meanwhile denounced racism by receiving his award: “the film industry sends a very clear message to people of color, that they are not welcome here”.

Black in the spotlight

Synonymous with elegance, black was the order of the day. red carpet last Sunday. We first saw it in a two-tone version on actress Rebel Wilson’s Prabal Gurung dress, then on Margot Robbie’s Chanel dress, twice nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for “Once Upon a Time … In Hollywwod” and “ScandalRooney Mara opted for a Givenchy dress, adorned with a puffed square neck, while Lily-Rose Depp, more daring, played on transparency with a lace dress by Chanel.

If black was adorned with sequins on Emilia Clarke’s Schiaparelli dress, it was more refined on Saoirse Ronan’s Gucci dress and on the Alexander McQueen look of Olivia Colman, the interpreter of Elizabeth II in the series The Crown. Finally Daisy Ridley caused a sensation in an asymmetrical dress signed Oscar de la Renta.

Other celebrities have stood out by daring to color. The pink was favored by Renée Zellweger, who won the BAFTA for Best Actress for “Judy” and Scarlett Johansson, nominated in the categories for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress for her films “Marriage story” and “Jojo Rabbit “. Ella Balinska bet on a pink floral dress Giambattista Valli while Florence Pugh succumbed for a fuchsia pink dress signed Dries Van Noten.

Special mention for the actress Charlize Theron, sublime in a long purple dress signed Dior. Accompanied by Prince William, Kate Middleton recycled a white and gold Alexander McQueen dress, already worn in 2012 at an official dinner in Malaysia. Finally, model Jodie Turner-Smith brought a solar touch to the red carpet with a yellow Gucci dress.
