Stars and industry insiders flocked to the ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills for the BAFTA Tea Party on Saturday afternoon, January 5, ahead of the following evening’s Golden Globes ceremony.

Amy Adams, Lupita Nyong’o, Adam Driver, Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen all lit up the red carpet before mingling with members of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Between enjoying fine teas and exquisite sweets, attendees pressed the flesh, wished nominees good luck and raised awareness for BAFTA’s year-round programming.

The cast of The Favourite was there in full force, including Joe Alwyn, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and the queen herself, Olivia Colman, who chatted with Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe at length. Emily Blunt of Mary Poppins Returns and husband John Krasinski, aka Jack Ryan, who arrived shortly before BAFTA Los Angeles CEO Chantal Rickards gave remarks, made slow progress entering the ballroom as they were greeted from all sides. Meanwhile, the effervescent Rachel Brosnahan of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel fame and her husband, The Magicians’ Jason Ralph, made the rounds.

Leading ladies Gemma Chan, Linda Cardellini, Kathryn Hahn, Melissa McCarthy and Regina King stopped by to give red carpet interviews. Similarly, Richard Madden, Stephan James and Timothée Chalamet each put a dashing foot forward when posing for photos.

Musical talent included Justin Hurwitz, who scored First Man, as well as Mark Ronson and Anthony Rossomando, who co-wrote the song “Shallow” from A Star Is Born alongside Lady Gaga and Andrew Wyatt.

As the party began to die down, guests were still eager to congratulate Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer on the series’ nominations plus get in a few words with industry giants such as Alfonso Cuarón, Spike Lee, Barry Jenkins, Willem Dafoe, Peter Fonda and Sir Ben Kingsley.
