What happened last Sunday during the ceremony of the BAFTA Awards can’t be summed up in few words- that’s because there’s so many things to talk about.. From the glamorous red carpet fashion to the list of winners. The night was spectacular to say the least!
First of all, even though the awards have been quite spread out, there has been no surprises: ‘The Revenant’ was set to be the great winner. Alejandro González Iñárritu’s film won the best awards: Best Director, Best Picture and Best Actor. Definitely, it was going to be Leonardo DiCaprio’s great night.
Actually, being given the award ended up resulting just an anecdote, as everyone preferred to show him celebrating with friends his achievement and to see how he re-encountered with his good friend Kate Winslet, who has also won the award for Best Supporting Actress in Steve Jobs’ biopic. Too bad she wasn’t the person sitting next to him while it was the moment of the odd, but yet funny, kiss cam. Anyway, DiCaprio’s nice peck on Maggie Smith’s cheek was, for sure, one of the highlights.
Nevertheless, it seems that this year’s ceremony had a lot to do with fashion. Not only because everybody is remarking the elegance of the dresses and how everyone looked, fashion was also the great polemic of the night. So much pressure has fallen on Stephen Fry, and because of that, he has decided to cancel his Twitter account due to massive responses from fans.
It seems that his comments about Jenny Beavan’s dress have not been forgiven by his fans, who are still asking Fry for apologies. His hosting has received all kind of critics, but for now, it seems that his intervention has gone too far. But, as everything happened on that night, Fry’s comments did not silence the laughter of the guests. Surely, for some more than others, last Sunday’s night will be a night to remember.
