Coverage of the 2013 BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea Party
Our annual Awards Season Tea Party reached new heights of glitz and glamor in 2013, with a capacity crowd of hollywood's biggest names filling the ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. The glamorous event has a long tradition of recognizing the very best filmmaking talent and is hugely popular with nominees seeking a respite from the hectic and demanding Awards season.
This year, Ben Affleck, Hugh Jackman, Kathryn Bigelow, Christoph Waltz, Daniel Day Lewis, Sally Field, Tim Burton, Marion Cotillard, Helena Bonham Carter, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Bon Jovi, Amanda Seyfried, Sienna Miller, Michelle Dockery, Julian Fellowes and a host of other peers were seen mingling in a room of brimming with BAFTA Members and Guests. There was a noticeably relaxed atmosphere in the room, perhaps thanks to the six different types of teas on hand to calm any pre-award nerves and a constant flow of Tattinger to toast the nominees.
As well as honoring the year's nominees and winners, the Tea Party also included a silent auction to raise funds and awareness of our Community Outreach and Philanthropic programs including our Heritage Archive and Inner City Cinema programs.
If it could have had a better attendance, we can't imagine what that would look like. This event gets bigger every year, and keeps out-A-listing itselfHollywood Reporter
