This year, much discussion revolving around red carpet fashion is related to the environmental impact, and the baftas got the memo, introducing a dress code that encouraged attending celebrities to be conscientious, re-wear, and recycle. On Sunday night, the Royal Albert Hall was once again packed with British top actors, actresses, directors, Hollywood celebrities, and of course the royal family, Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, who has served as Bafta President for 10 years, and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton as the guest of honors to attend the 2020 EE British Academy Film Awards.
The Duke of Cambridge expressed his concerns regarding a room for more diversity at the Baftas, “Yet in 2020, and not for the first time in the last few years, we find ourselves talking again about the need to do more to ensure diversity in the sector and in the awards process – that simply cannot be right in this day and age!”
It was the night of World War I film “1917”, as it won big for seven awards at the Baftas, including best film award. And its director Sir Sam Mendes becomes the first British director who won the award for the first time since Danny Boyle won for the first time since director Danny Boyle won for Slumdog Millionaire in 2009.
Meanwhile familiar faces also won one of the biggest awards of the night, such as Renée Zellweger who won the leading actress award and Joaquin Phoenix for the leading actor award. Meanwhile Brad Pitt also won the supporting actor award for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in America”.
The 2020 EE British Academy Film Awards also serves a lot of gorgeous stars arrival on the red carpet. “Bombshell” actress Charlize Theron wowed the crowd with once again an electric-colour dress, this time in purple, by Dior Haute Couture.
