Yesterday, Hollywood A-listers and It Brits gathered from their respective sides of the pond to the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills for the annual BAFTA Los Angeles Tea Party. With chic stars like Alicia Vikander, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in attendance, elegant style was as abundant as the porcelain cups of Earl Grey. 

Cate Blanchett in Camilla & Marc 

When it came to the nominations, Carol and Bridge of Spies are the films to beat at the 2016 ceremony, with an impressive nine nominations each. 

Todd Haynes' Carol, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, is up for Best Film, Director and Adapted Screenplay – among others – plus Leading Actress (for Blanchett) and Supporting Actress (Mara). Cold War drama Bridge of Spies, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks, is similarly nominated for Best Film, Director and Original Screenplay, plus Supporting Actor for Mark Rylance.

Rooney Mara in Proenza Schouler

Following close behind are The Revenant, with eight nominations, Mad Max: Fury Road, with seven and The Martian and Brooklyn, both with six. 

Battling it out against Blanchett in the Leading Actress category are Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl); Brie Larson (Room); Maggie Smith (The Lady in the Van); and Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn). Meanwhile, could this be the year that Leonardo DiCaprio finally gets his Oscar? Nominated in the Leading Actor category are Bryan Cranston for Trumbo, Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl); Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant); Matt Damon (The Martian); and Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs).

It's proving to be a successful year for Alicia Vikander, who has also been nominated in the Supporting Actress category for her role in Ex Machina, where she'll go up against Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight); Julie Walters (Brooklyn); Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs); and Rooney Mara (Carol).
