The complete guide to the Bafta Film Awards 2018

The 2018 BAFTA Awards (British Academy Film Awards) are taking place tonight across the pond in England at The Royal Albert Hall tonight.

Angelina, 42, strutted down the red carpet in her velvet gown by British designers Ralph and Russo alongside her guest, First They Killed My Father producer Loung Ung.

More than 190 entertainers, academics and activists have added their signatures, giving their voice to the protests over sexual harassment which have been growing since allegations against American film producer Harvey Weinstein surfaced last October.

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were also in attendance - and Kate wore a dark green dress with a black belt.

Kate, who is expecting her third child in April, is attending the British Academy Film Awards with her husband, Prince William, who is president of the United Kingdom movie academy.

MAYHEM erupted on the BAFTAs earlier tonight as a dozen protesters wearing "Time's Up Theresa" T-shirts stormed onto the red carpet.

He said: "I think it's important to represent this movement and try to listen if people are trying to be heard".

In an open letter published Sunday before the awards, around 200 British stars demanded an end to sexual harassment and abuse.

Writer-director McDonagh said it was fitting, in the year of the "Time's Up" campaign, that "Three Billboards" is "a film about a woman who refuses to take any s (asterisk)(asterisk)(asterisk) anymore".

A letter published Sunday has been signed by Academy Award victor Emma Thompson, Naomie Harris, Emma Watson, Gemma Arterton and many others.

You'd have to have a pretty bloody good memory to remember a more hotly contested BAFTAs than this year's instalment of the prestigious film awards, with heavy-hitters like Darkest Hour, Call Me By Your Name, The Shape of Water, Dunkirk, and The Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri, all vying for glory.

Announcing a fund to support women and men battling workplace abuse - modeled on the "Time's Up" movement in the USA - the stars said "with our collective power, we can galvanize others".

The royal family usually steers clear of political statements, but it could be awkward for Kate to ignore the gesture and wear bright colors.

Former Harry Potter star Watson has given the fund £1 million pounds ($1.8 million CDN), according to its page on the Go Fund Me website.

Gary Oldman took home the leading actor trophy for his Golden Globe-winning portrayal of British wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya won the EE Rising Star award, as voted for by the public.

Gabriel Jesus could make Manchester City comeback vs. Wigan
