BAFTAs 2020: Scarlett Johansson leads stars on red carpet

The 73rd British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) was held at London's Royal Albert Hall on Sunday, with stars from far and wide flocking to the English capital for a night of glitz and glamour.

Scarlett Johansson pulled out all the stops for the one of the biggest events in TV and film as she led the glamour alongside Little Women stars Florence Pugh and Saoirse Ronan, and Renee Zellweger.

Leading Actress nominee Scarlett, 35, borrowed tips from the 1920s in a busty feathered gown as she graced the red carpet with her A-list competitors, Judy star Renee, 50, and Little Women's Saoirse, 25, and Florence, 24.

Turning up the heat, the Actress star brought a touch of sex appeal to the extravagant bash in a dazzling pink gown, which featured a perilously low-cut neckline, a beaded bodice and a tasseled hemline.

Despite sporting a floor-length piece, Scarlett, who is also up for Supporting Actress for her role in Jojo Rabbit, managed to flash a hint of her metallic heels through her garment's bold thigh-high slit.

The blonde looked typically stunning as she upped the ante with chandelier-inspired earrings which complemented her head-turning appearance.

With her tresses dressed into a chic updo, the Girl with a Pearl Earring actress finished off her appearance with glittery pink make-up look.

Joker is this year's frontrunner with a whopping 11 nominations, while The Irishman and Once Upon a Time... in are close behind with 10 nods each. 

The supervillain origin story, which stars Joaquin Phoenix and is directed by Todd Phillips, looks set to dominate on the night, and will compete for Best Film alongside Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino's latest films, as well as 1917, and Parasite.

Focused on how the Clown Prince Of Crime came to be, the box-office hit also earned nods in the categories for Best Director, Leading Actor, Adapted Screenplay, Editing, Production
