The 77th British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) are set to take place on February 18, 2024, celebrating the best in filmmaking from across the globe. Often referred to as the ‘British Oscars’, the BAFTAs recognize outstanding achievements in both British and international films released in the previous year. This year's ceremony will be held at the Royal Festival Hall in London's Southbank Centre.

Deepika Padukone's BAFTA look

Deepika Padukone made a head-turning appearance at the BAFTA Awards, opting for a stunning Sabyasachi saree in a nod to her Indian heritage. The off-white golden saree, paired with a halter neck blouse and smoky eye make-up, oozing elegance and grace. This marks the first time Padukone has been invited as a presenter at the prestigious ceremony, and her choice of attire is sure turning heads in London.

Fans' reactions

Deepika Padukone's this BAFTA look has taken the internet by storm, garnering over 5 lakh likes and 5,000 comments on Instagram within just an hour. Fans are showering her with compliments, praising her style and elegance. While one wrote, “She knows she ate”, another recalled Deepika’s debut Om Shanti Om (2007) character and wrote, “Shanti priya, you will always be missed.”


Again one fan confidently wrote, “Deepika Padukone and saree can never go wrong”, other users flooded complimenting, “Mother of Mothering”, “Queen of Indian cinema”, “A woman from a fantasy world”, Deepika Padukone x Saree best combo ever”, etc.


BAFTA nominations

Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer leads the BAFTA nominations this year, and the Best Supporting Actor race is shaping up to be a showdown between Robert Downey Jr. and Paul Mescal. Downey Jr. is the favorite, having swept the awards season for his portrayal of Lewis Strauss in Oppenheimer. However, Mescal could be a dark horse for his performance in All of Us Strangers, a critically acclaimed but under-recognized film. While Mescal is a rising star, Downey Jr. is a seasoned actor who may not have many more chances at an award. This could make for a sentimental win for Downey Jr., accompanied by a charming and funny speech.
