The BAFTAs saw some of the most well-known faces in the industry flock to the Royal Albert Hall as they celebrated the best of film in the last year. There was even royalty in attendance as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were notably in the audience. However, the couple were forced to laugh off a joke from Brad Pitt’s acceptance speech.
Brad Pitt was awarded Best Actor tonight but unfortunately was unable to attend the prestigious ceremony.
He wasn’t at the awards tonight due to “family obligations” but still drew the attention of the guests after his speech took aim at various attendees.
In his place to accept the gong was Margot Robbie, who starred alongside him in Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood as Sharon Tate.
However, even despite his absence, the critically-acclaimed actor managed to stir things up for those in attendance.
