The highlights of the glamorous Brit awards, right here.

The British Academy of Film and Television Awards ceremony was held at the Royal Albert Hall in London on February 18 and Hollywood turned up in full force.

Black dominated the red carpet again, as stars continued to support the Time's Up and #MeToo campaigns.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, with the top awards, was the big winner of the night.

A look at the highlights:



Rubbing shoulders with Hollywood was British actress Amy Jackson, who is a successful actress in India (she is Rajinikanth's heroine in 2.0!)

While posting this picture on Instagram, she mentioned that it was her first time at the awards ceremony.


Angelina Jolie took her film, First They Killed My Father, to the BAFTAs. It was nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film but lost out to The Handmaiden.

Her plus one for the evening was human rights activist and author, Loung Ung.

Later, she did give her reasons for her decision. 

Prince William, of course, can't get his eyes of her.
