On 12 February, the biggest stars of the silver screen walked up our red carpet to the Royal Albert Hall to recognise, honour and reward outstanding achievement in feature films seen on British cinema screens, at the BAFTA’s 70th anniversary ceremony.
This year marked the return of the BAFTA ceremony to the Hall for the first time for 20 years! Although it looked a bit different to the 1997 ceremony, this year’s event was another celebration of the timeless appeal of cinema.
