The 2012 BAFTAs were held on Sunday,12 February, at London’s Royal Opera House.  The event is billed as the British Oscars, honoring this year’s best in film from the UK and US. Some of our favorite shining stars graced the red carpet. The Help’s Octavia Spencer arrived on the red carpet with co-star Viola Davis. Spencer took home the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the feisty domestic servant Minnie Jackson. Davis wore a bright salmon dress by Valentino. The gown was made of recycled bottles, the first eco-dress for the Italian label. The actress was nominated for Best Actress for her role in the The Help. Unfortunately, she lost to Meryl Streep. The Thing star Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje graced the red carpet, along with Skyfall actress Naomie Harris in an eccentric Emilio Pucci yellow gown. Cuba Gooding Jr. looked dapper with a white scarf accessory to his evening wear. Other notable black stars in attendance were rising director Steve McQueen, British actress Zawe Ashton, and Neighborhood Watch star Richard Ayoade. Check out pics from the event below.
