The Red Carpet — BAFTA Film Awards

It's the glitziest night of the British film calendar.

However, unlike other award shows, viewers won't be able to watch Sunday's ceremony live when it starts at 7 p.m. GMT in London's Royal Albert Hall. As in past years, the broadcast won't begin airing on BBC One until 9 p.m. GMT so that BBC producers can edit down the runtime to a shorter two-hour show, as well as snip any profanities. Last year, Lumley, who took over hosting duties from Stephen Fry, was the first female to present the awards, Britain's version of the Oscars.

The event drew Hollywood stars including "A Star Is Born" actor and director Bradley Cooper and "Mary Queen of Scots" nominee Margot Robbie, walking a chilly red carpet.

Ellen Page Drags Chris Pratt for His "Infamously" Anti-LGBTQ Church
Chris Pratt is often thought of as one of Hollywood's most likable-and most bankable-leading men, but Ellen Page isn't having it. He also said how the church's pastor shared some words of wisdom about how he can balance fame and his inner self.

Colman has already won a Golden Globe and Critic's Choice award for her performance, and will now compete against SAG and Golden Globe victor Close (for The Wife), as well as Lady Gaga (A Star Is Born), Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) and Viola Davis (Widows).

Cooper picked up the Original Music prize for his musical remake, "A Star Is Born", while Adapted Screenplay went to Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman".

Colman's co-stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone have both received nods in the supporting actress category, and director Yorgos Lanthimos is also nominated.
