Quibbling rivalry

Celebs come out for the BAFTA Awards

Crowds witnessed a galactic alignment of stars along the British Academy Films Awards’ red carpet on Sunday evening.

The presence of best actor noms George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Jean Dujardin, Gary Oldman and Michael Fassbender raised the frosty London mercury by a few degrees outside the Royal Opera House. Penelope Cruz, Octavia Spencer, Michelle Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr. had also all flown in to attend the bash, along with Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, who hit the stage as an Aussie comedy double act.

Faux rivalries were evident, as Clooney poked light-hearted fun at Pitt, outing him as the noms’ outcast. “We’ve all become quite good friends. Well, everybody but Pitt. Nobody likes him, you can imagine.”

Guests journeyed onto the regular post-kudos venue, Grosvenor House, where there was dining, drinking and dancing to the dulcet tones of Emeli Sande.
