The British Academy Television Awards took place last night at Royal Festival Hall to celebrate the best and brightest shows and artists on television.

It may not be as star-studded as the BAFTA's film awards, but we still did some serious style stalking. The annual celebration of the best UK and international viewing pretty much was a Killing Eve dedication party; the spy-action thriller swept the board

BBC America's hit thriller series won the Drama Series award, Best Supporting Actress for Fiona Shaw and Best Leading Actress for Jodie Comer, AKA Villainelle. Bodyguard won the award for Must-See Moment for Keeley Hawes' assassination

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (the genius behind Fleabag and Killing Eve), Fiona Shaw and Jodie Comer looked gorgeous on the red carpet, each wearing block colour, demure gowns.

1. Derry Girls, of course, SLAPPED:

Look at them, what an absolute pack of rides. We've had to report a theft because the stellar cast of Derry Girls left the awards ceremony empty-handed, having earned the nomination for Best Scripted Comedy.

We can't believe they were robbed, but at least they all looked insanely good? Look at James wearing guy-liner, we're in a state of shock. Five beauties who represented their country on the red carpet. 

Did someone say…proud parents? *Wipes away tear*


A post shared by Nicola Coughlan (@nicolacoughlan) on

The internet and general public are up in arms over one Daily Mail UK reporter's criticism of Nicola Coughlan's BAFTA appearance.

"Her plain pink outfit was not the most flattering," wrote one (*cough* male *cough*) reporter. He'd want to think about wising up.

Of course, Nicola Coughlan absolutely cancelled him and he has been dismissed from the earth as a result of her epic photographic comebacks.

2. Dr Who is THAT? Jodie Whittaker, that's who.

The doctor showed up in a beautiful black and white ensemble that really showed next-level elegance.

Her minimalist billowing gown is effortlessly chic; we adore the first female doctor's style.

3. Ruth Wilson

The actress is nominated as a leading role for her work in BBC One's Mrs Wilson, and looked ultra glam on the red carpet in a black dress with a plunging neckline.

The 37-year-old stars as her real-life grandmother Alison in the show, which chronicles the repercussions of her notorious grandfather and MI6 spy Alexander Wilson's death.

We are loving the decorative belt and buttons on her outfit, which suits her perfectly. Status: SLAY.

 4. Keeley Hawes, former secretary of defence in Bodyguard.

We have to say, this is one of our all-time favourite BAFTA outfits. The actress oozes Hollywood glamour in her flowing silver dress with a bardot neckline.

The Line of Duty star was given two nominations for her acting talents, and the 43-year-old matched her beautiful gown with a red lip. We clap our hands to you, Keeley.

5. Rochelle Humes in YSL.

The television presenter looked gorgeous in a sheer, plunging YSL dress in plain black.  The 30-year-old arrived with her husband Marvin at the Royal Festival Hall, and allowed the gown to take centre stage.

She had her dark tresses pulled back into a sleek up-do, and wore a face of natural make-up. We love the matching bow detail around her neck and the seductive slit to show off her killer pins.

6. Lilah Parsons

The British model looked beautiful in a summery, frilled dress. The delicate black-and-white gown featured layers of material and a flattering neckline.

*Pause for applause*

7. Billie Piper, AKA Style Sniper

Piper was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in BBC's Collateral.

Her one-shoulder blazer gown stopped us in our tracks with the thigh-high slit. The mum-of-two matched the stunning stress with black, pointed heels and silver diamond jewellery and we just have to say: Bravo.

8. Daisy May Cooper

The co-creator, writer, and star of BBC's This Country turned heads on the red carpet after going for the trash theme, telling reporters, "I decided I would donate the money I would spend on a normal dress to a food bank and come as a bin bag."

Fair play to her. She was nominated for in the Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme category, and has made our fashion list for her pure bravery and generous spirit. She even had a mini rubbish bin purse and a pigeon on her head; now that's commitment.

9. Lucy Worsley: Suffragette Sistah

Suffragettes: With Lucy Worsley won a BAFTA last night and the leading lady dressed as an ACTUAL suffragette: We're floored. The sash should be a daily part of every woman's uniform, we think. Just add a bit of glitter and it would be perfect for any summer music festival.

The documentary uses dramatised testimony to tell the story of a group of working-class women conducting a dangerous campaign for the right to vote.

10. Holly Willoughby

The ITV presenter didn't come to play. Wearing a blue, sheer Maria Lucia Hohan gown, she stunned on the red carpet.

Holly won big in the Reality & Constructed Factual award category for I'm A Celebrity… Get me Out Of Here!, and shared the award with her older sister Kelly.

11. Suit Up: Tess Daly

We love a red carpet risk, and wearing a scarlet suit to the BAFTAs is a bold move from the Strictly Come Dancing presenter. She looked absolutely furious when host Graham Norton made a dig about the Katya Jones/Seann Walsh cheating scandal.

The 50-year-old beauty wore a red trouser suit by Suzanne Neville, Kurt Geiger shoes, an Aspinal of London bag and Georgina Scott jewellery. We're loving the gold hoops.

12. Last but not least: Maya Jama

The 24-year-old model and television personality looked KILLER in an ivory tassel dress. Wearing Bulgari on her neck and showing off her bust, Jama flexed her style harder than ever.

The Stand Up To Cancer host kept her make-up simple and made sure the gown has all the attention. We are looking to find a serpent diamond necklace as unreal as this one, but for an affordable price. Slide into our DMs if you discover it anywhere…

Overall, the style game was strong in this years' BAFTA awards.

From cape arms, dangerous dress slits and iconic jewellery, we think Daisy May Cooper's pigeon may have actually taken the red carpet fashion crown.

Fresh from her win at the Golden Globes, Saoirse Ronan has cemented herself as the frontrunner in this year's award season after being nominated for a BAFTA Best Actress award for her performance in Lady Bird.

At just 23-years-old, this is the actress' fouth BAFTA nomination, having previously been recognised for her performances in Brooklyn, The Lovely Bones and Atonement.

Saoirse is up against a fierce group of talented females, with Annette Bening (Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), all shortlisted for the award.

Other notable BAFTA nominations include writer-director Martin McDonagh, whose film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, proved the big winner at the Golden Globes.

The critically acclaimed film has been shortlisted for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay, as well as Leading Actress (Frances McDormand) and Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson).

The awards, hosted by Joanna Lumley, take place in London's Royal Albert Hall on February 18.

We know it's sooo superficial and totally childish, but when celebrities date, it feels like we're going along for the ride with them.

Just look at the reactions to Brad and Angie, Zayn and Perrie, and even Kourtney and Scott's break-up.

But one couple we truly loved was Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield.

Between their cute red carpet appearances and their stand-up to the paps, they just seemed so perfect for each other. So, when they broke up in 2015, due to 'busy work schedules', we were all pretty heartbroken.

But last night, the pair both attended a BAFTA pre-party, and well… we'll just let the picture do the talking.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone hugging at a BAFTAs pre-party is emotional


Both Emma and Andrew attended EE British Academy Film Awards Nespresso Nominees' Party in Kensington, London as they are both nominated for a BAFTA award.

We mean, this is a sign, right?!


She sparked a lot of rumours last week when she was seen getting cosy with the one and only Leonardo DiCaprio, and now, Laura Whitmore tells us what really went down at the BAFTA after-party.

During an interview with Hello!, Laura dished that "everyone was having fun – there was a lot of dancing," but she refused to answer any questions about Leonardo.

However, she told the mag what she looks for in an ideal man.

"Someone who can make me laugh and with whom I can have fun. I love banter so someone who can keep me on my toes. I don't mind having a few arguments," she said.

"I'm not interested in big, over-the-top gestures but little things, like I'll keep the ticket stubs from a gig I was at, or a T-shirt."

Since many news outlets have issued articles about Laura and Leo, the presenter has hit back on social media, and said that the situation is "shocking."

"I studied journalism for 4 years and find it shocking that someone can write a story about nothing and make up quotes. Extremely demeaning," she tweeted.

Nobody messes with the Whitmore.

Millie Mackintosh has revealed her super glamorous style session before she strutted her stuff on the red carpet at the TV BAFTA awards on Sunday.

The former Made in Chelsea star took to Instagram to share her snaps, as she got glammed up and ready for the star-studded bash.

After she’d slipped on her gold Julien Macdonald dress (we WANT IT!), hubby Professor Green couldn’t help but notice how hot his wife looked!

Millie joked, “Just asked @professorgreen if he approved of tonight outfit.. #baftas.”

The couple were joined by celebrity chef Gizzi Erskine on the night, as well as Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack.

Today’s highlights include what could be the cause of Bieber’s string of troubles, Brookyln Beckham takes on a minimum wage job, Kim Kardashian arrives in Paris with half her home and much more.

Watch the video for the full report.



The A-listers of the movie world were honoured by BAFTAs in February, so it’s time to give a nod to the talent of the small screen.

The Irish are holding their own at this year’s awards with Fifty Shades of Grey hunk Jamie Dornan in the running for the lead actor trophy for his chilling performance in The Fall.

The former Calvin Klein model just picked up the best actor award at the IFTAs this weekend, along with the Rising Star award so another win wouldn’t be a surprise.

Bridesmaids star Chris O’Dowd is nominated for Best Male Performance in a Comedy Programme for The IT Crowd, while Graham Norton is nominated for Best Entertainment Performance, with The Graham Norton Show also among the Best Comedy and Comedy Entertainment Programme nominees.

The star-studded ceremony itself will be held on Sunday, May 18th in London.




The BAFTA’s were held last night and the style from the night was either very good – or disatrous (we’re looking at you Lily Allen).

Our best dressed stars of the evening managed to maintain classic looks – clean cuts and muted colours were the winners of the night for us!

Helen Mirren, who was presented with a BAFTA Fellowship looked stunning in a long-sleeve black dress with a tulle ending.

Les Misérables star, Samantha Barks, enhanced her gorgeous silhouette in a simple cream gown with a demure side slit.

Everyone’s favourite talk-show host, Oprah Winfrey looked amazing in a mulberry-coloured Stella McCartney number with a long-sleeve lace top and a satin bow around the waist.

Angelina Jolie was the talk of the evening, fashion wise, as she embraced an androgynous and classic look in a monochrome suit – we love it!

Prince William was guest of honour at last night’s BAFTAs and even got a high-five from Tinie Tempah at the start.

The Duke of Cambridge was greeted like a Hollywood star when he arrived on the red carpet, with deafening screams from the crowd that not even Leonardo DiCaprio could muster. The Prince then took the time to pose for a few selfies with his adorning fans because he’s a lovely lad.

However, it wasn’t  just the fans outside who were excited to see him, as Uma Thurman and Leonardo DiCaprio asked organisers what they should do when the Prince entered the room. When they were told to stand, Uma Thurman excitedly said: “‘Great! So exciting to meet a prince.”

As the president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the 31-year-old had the lucky job of presenting the BAFTA Fellowship Award to Dame Helen Mirren for her contribution to the film industry.

When presenting the award, he jokingly said about the actress who played the Queen in the movie The Queen, that she is “an extremely talented British actress I should probably call Granny”.

Oh and did we mention the high five?



Dame Helen Mirren is to be presented with a BAFTA fellowship at this year’s EE British Academy Film Awards. The award is the most prestigious award bestowed upon an actor by the Academy.

Mirren has certainly been in her fair share of amazing movies and won an Oscar for her role in the 2006 movie The Queen.

Other great actors that have been awarded this prestigious award include Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Elizabeth Taylor, Martin Scorsese and Judi Dench.

Speaking about her impending award, The Calender Girls actor said: “This is the greatest professional honour I can imagine, certainly one I never dreamt of as a schoolgirl in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex. To join that list of legendary names is overwhelming”.

The awards will be held on February 16th at the Royal Opera House in London.



As awards season heats up, we’ve taken a look at the BAFTA nominations, which came out earlier today.

Some of this year’s hottest films feature prominently, such as Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, Philomena and American Hustle.

The movie with the most nominations – eleven overall, including Best Film, Original Music and Original Screenplay – was Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (can they please just get married already?)

Philomena, a heart-wrenching story based on the tragic tale of Irish woman Philomena Lee has received great attention in the movie world following its release earlier this year. It stars Judi Dench as Philomena and Steve Coogan (who wrote the screenplay) as journalist Martin Sixsmith.

Dench is up for the Leading Actress BAFTA alongside Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Emma Thompson.

American Hustle is also set to make a rumble this awards season. The movie boasts an impressive cast of Christian Bale, Amy Adams and of course, the wonderful Jennifer Lawrence.
