BAFTAs 2020: Olivia Colman wows in an embroidered gown on red carpet

BAFTAs 2020: Olivia Colman takes inspiration from her royal costumes as she wows in a black embroidered chiffon gown on the red carpet

She has been busy filming the latest series of The Crown where she stars as Queen Elizabeth II. 

And Olivia Colman took inspiration from her royal costumes as she attended the 73rd annual EE British Academy Film Awards on Sunday night at the Royal Albert Hall in London. 

The Oscar-winning star, 46, looked regal in a stunning black Alexander McQueen gown with sheer chiffon sleeves and a purple floral embroidered top.

Following the lilac theme, Olivia teamed the item of clothing with a pair of matching earrings and a collection of rings.

The star also made a statement with an ERA 50:50 ring, which campaigns for gender balance and equal representation of women on screen.

Olivia styled her signature cropped brunette locks into a textured hairdo, she added a slick of glamorous make-up.     

The 2020 ceremony is the 73rd annual EE British Academy Film Awards and is considered the UK’s most prestigious awards ceremony. It is also the last event to take place ahead of the Oscars.

The ceremony will be hosted by Graham Norton, taking over the role from Joanna Lumley, who hosted for two years prior.

Joker is this year’s frontrunner with a whopping 11 nominations, while The Irishman and Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood are close behind with 10 nods each.

The supervillain origin story, which stars Joaquin Phoenix and is directed by Todd Phillips, looks set to dominate on the night, and will compete for Best Film alongside Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino’s latest films, as well as 1917, and Parasite.

Focused on how the Clown Prince Of Crime came to be, the box-office hit also earned nods in the categories for Best Director, Leading Actor, Adapted Screenplay, Editing, Production Design, Make Up and Hair and Sound.

This is Joaquin’s fourth nomination by BAFTA, and while he is the frontrunner he faces tough competition in the Lead Actor category from Adam Driver (Marriage Story), Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood), Taron Egerton (Rocketman), and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes).

The Master actor’s chances of taking home his first BAFTA are very high, given he has already earned a Golden Globe and a SAG award earlier this month.

In the Supporting Actor category, Brad Pitt is hotly-tipped to win for Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood after having similar success to Joaquin, but will go up against Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood), Sir Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes) Al Pacino and Joe Pesci (both for The Irishman).  

Meanwhile, Margot Robbie is set to go up against herself in the Supporting Actress category, earning nominations for her work on both Bombshell and Tarantino’s latest flick about the golden age of Hollywood. 

Wow: Joker (pictured) is this year’s frontrunner with a whopping 11 nominations, while The Irishman and Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood are close behind with 10 nods each

Although her odds are increased with two nods, Laura Dern is the favourite to win for her role as cutthroat lawyer Nora Fanshaw in Marriage Story, while Florence Pugh (Little Women), and Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit) are also nominated.

Scarlett is another star sitting on two nominations, and if she is unable to scoop the Supporting Actress gong, she could have luck in the Lead Actress category, where she is up for her work in Netflix drama Marriage Story.

She will go up against Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women), and Charlize Theron (Bombshell), but it is Renee Zellweger (Judy) who is likely to win given her success in recent months.

Outstanding British Film is set to be tightly fought category, with 1917, Bait, For Sama, Rocketman, Sorry We Missed You, and The Two Popes going head-to-head.

1917’s Sam Mendes has earned a Best Director nomination, and he will compete against Phillips, Scorsese, Tarantino, and Bong Joon-ho (Parasite).

The Little Woman: Saoirse Ronan (centre right) and Florence Pugh (centre left) have both been nominated for their roles in Little Women 

If the BAFTAs follow the same path as the Golden Globes, it will be a good night for Mendes’ World War I movie, as that scooped both Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director at the Hollywood ceremony.

This year’s ceremony also saw the introduction of a new category for Casting, while producer Kathleen Kennedy will be granted the BAFTA Fellowship Award and Andy Serkis will be honoured for his Outstanding Contribution to Cinema. 

While the prestigious EE Rising Star Award were announced, with Awkwafina, Jack Lowden, Kaitlyn Dever, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Micheal Ward in the running. 

BAFTA winners and nominees are voted for by 6,500 BAFTA members, comprised of industry professionals and creatives around the world. 

Members vote to decide the nominations from hundreds of films in round one, then vote for the winner from the shortlist in round two.
