The annual event reached dizzying heights of glamour this year, as presenting sponsors Jaguar and Mulberry joined BAFTA Los Angeles to present the ever-popular Awards Season Tea Party, hosted at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
The Tea Party 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, Sandra Bullock, Martin Scorsese, Leonard DiCaprio, Sally Hawkins, Christoph Waltz, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hanks, Paul Greengrass, David O. Russell, Jaqueline Bisset, Benedict Cumberbatch, and a host of other peers were seen mingling in a room brimming with BAFTA Members and Guests.
There was a noticeable buzz in the room, with six different types of teas on hand to calm any pre-award nerves and a constant flow of cocktails to toast the nominees. Four Seasons' Chef Ashley James created a spread of delicious British treats including sandwiches, scones and cakes for all to enjoy in the luxurious surroundings of the Four Seasons ballroom.
As well as honoring the year's nominees and winners, the Tea Party also raised awareness of our Community Outreach and Philanthropic programs including our Heritage Archive and Inner City Cinema programs.
The Tea offers a chance to celebrate excellence in our craft, in the build-up to the annual EE British Academy Film Awards ceremony held in London.
