BAFTA Awards 2012: A Rundown

The Artist cleans up at 2012's BAFTA Awards.

The British Acadamy of Film and Television Arts Awards, held on Sundat in London's Royal Opera House, has honoured The Artist with multiple statues including Best Film, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Leading Actor (for Jean Dujardin). Veteran actor John Hurt was recognised with a Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema Award and Martin Scorsese was given a BAFTA fellowship award. Australian Chris Hemsworth lost out to Adam Deacon for the Orange Rising Star Award but appeared veritably hunky (there is no other word for it) nonetheless.

On the red carpet, Miss Piggy led the charge in Louis Vuitton. Metallics shone through with Christina Ricci in a lame Givenchy, Jessica Chastain in Oscar de la Renta and Melissa George in a gothic Victoria Beckham. Michelle Williams wore custom H&M while Gary Oldman wore bespoke Paul Smith, tweeting his get-up prior to the ceremony. Please enjoy our gallery of red carpet highlights below and scroll down for the full list of winners.
