Leonardo DiCaprio won his first-ever BAFTA, posed happily with Tom Cruise


Tom Cruise LOVES to be a surprise presenter at big awards shows. He’s always turning up late in the evening during an awards show to present one of the big awards, like Best Director or Best Picture. And Cruise got to do that last night at the BAFTAs by presenting Best Picture to Boy Drama In the Woods. You can see the full list of winners here – they are exactly who you would expect, from Leonardo DiCaprio to Mark Rylance to Brie Larson (who didn’t even show up). But hey, Leo won his first-ever BAFTA. So good for him.



The last of the fashion photos… Olga Kurylenko in Ralph & Russo Couture, but if you had told me this was Elie Saab, I would have believed you. I like this, despite the fact that it’s super-bridal and despite the fact that the gown should have been lined properly. I can see her panties, I’m just saying.


I love Gwendoline Christie so much, and I love that she loves fashion. But I feel like her people aren’t serving her well. This custom Lanvin is interesting, but not really flattering.


Emilia Clarke in Victoria Beckham (which looks like Roland Mouret). This is fine. Pretty, simple, non-controversial.


Heida Reed, best known for POLDARK, in Nicholas Oakwell. I know it’s very “simple,” but I like this a lot. It’s a good dress for a TV Girl-at-the-BAFTAs.

    Yay. Can we stop with this narrative now?
    Gwen Christie rules.

    TC’s face!!!!!!

    He needs to accept the aging process. His face is so swollen.

    • Aussie girl says:

      To many fillers= face like pin cushion.

    • Kirsten says:

      Verging into Ted Kennedy territory with the chipmunk cheeks and those teef. Step away from the fillers, Tom!

    • brincalhona says:

      I think he was there to make sure Leo looked chisel-cheeked and wide-eyed.

    • Anne tommy says:

      Cruise looks awful. Leo is much sexier now than in his pretty boy days. Brie was in Oz with Hiddles and a giant primate I believe so she had an excuse not to be there. And a shout out to another absentee, Sidney Poitier, not well enough to travel but presented with a lifetime award in the U.S. by his (lovely) daughter. What a wonderful man.

    • holly hobby says:

      That was my first thought when I saw his pic! Why is his face bloated to the point where you don’t see his eyes?

  3. Hannah says:

    Good for him. I was totally obsessed with him when I was a kid. But I honestly find him so boring as a person And his film choices are pretty much same old,same old. He works with good or great established directors which is fine but there’s no risk taking anymore. Feels like his films are the epitome of white male movies these days.

    • meme says:

      The Revenant WAS a risk. I don’t get what a “white male movie” is.

    • Lin says:

      I think Leo’s filmography is as diverse as ever. he’s done virtually every decade (Gatsby, Django, Titanic) he’s done mindfuck (inception), so many more. People really do have the most ridiculous reasons to undermine his talents. “Working with established directors” seriously? Lol. Let’s remind him to work with Rupert Sanders next. or Ryan Gosling or Chris Evans.

      • Hannah says:

        His talent is not undermined, it’s wildly recognised. He commands millions per movies and is usually nominated for awards. I really don’t understand why is fans have this need to make it sound like he’s not being honoured.
        my opinion is that he makes safe and these days very white male movies. Decades they are set in has nothing to do with this.
        Rupert sanders is just a bizarre example there are lots of interesting young directors around. In my opinion. .

    • Catelina says:

      Of course movies he stars in are ‘white male’ movies… He is a white man. He can’t really star in any other kind of movie unless he’s doing drag or using blackface.

      • FF says:

        I think she mean’t that it’s a manpain narrative where the women and poc are conspicuously absent (usually because their murder/death precipitates the manpain struggle) and it boils down to a ‘battle’ of wills between two white men that’s ostensibly about revenge/avenging a personal injustice.

        These types of films typically feature white males to the point where they can be labelled white guy narratives because you can boil a lot of said films down to that essence and white women, woc, and moc rarely get to play out this dynamic as frequently or successfully.

  4. Misti says:

    Leo’s Cam-Kiss with Maggie Smith was cute.
    He was game to play, but deferential to her.

  5. Guesto says:

    Really happy for Leo, as was the audience. And his acceptance speech was sincere and heartfelt with a sweet tribute to his mum at the end.

  6. Insomniac says:

    Is Leo crouching in those pictures or is Tom wearing stilts?

  7. Shambles says:

    Tom is Xenu’s Favorite Botox Chipmunk and Leo needs to unclench

    • FuefinaWG says:

      I don’t understand references to Xenu.
      I thought Xenu was an enemy of Scientologists; not someone they worship.

      • Anne tommy says:

        Others know a lot more than me but I think Xenu is the Big Giant Head of Scientology, and a good guy (or ancient alien or whatever the eff he’s meant to be…)

  8. Courtney says:

    Is Tom still filming that movie where he plays the pilot and had to gain weight? Because his face looks like he had to of had major major Botox to be that swollen! Or his face had a bad reaction or something!

  9. jemimaleopard says:

    A few Points to make here;
    1. How big are the lifts in Tiny Tom’s shoes that he’s managed to be half a head shorter than Leo who is 6ft?
    2. Looking at the red carpet pics…. is Leo wearing a Mirdle? His face looks the same as always and he’s quite burly looking across the shoulders and chest, until it comes to his middle and all of a sudden he has quite a svelte waist!
    3. What colour is Leo???! If you spend half your time vacationing on yachts in sunny climes, I don’t think you need a spray tan on top of your natural glow 😉 (see also; Middleton, Pippa)
    4. Tom looks like he’s storing nuts for winter.

  10. meme says:

    YAY for Leo!

  11. lilacflowers says:

    Brie Larson didn’t show up because she is filming The Giant Monkey Movie in Australia.

  12. Mindy says:

    Tom hasn’t had any work done. He’s now an OT VII in Scientology. He’s willed himself with just the power of his mind to look younger AND taller.

    Aaaahhhhh…. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  13. thecookingpan says:

    And Emilia’s face??? Botox much? Too young to start with that nonsense!

  14. What was that says:

    Dear Kaiser..I might be late to this observation..I just wanted to mention Mrs Speilberg and her face/hairstyle.fringe..which you call bangs..When watching the broadcast last night I could not work out who was sitting next to him..but then it dawned on me ..it was the Great Screamer of Indiana Jones part 2….Kate Capshaw..if you catch a view or screen grab you will see what I mean…for all her money or rather her husbands she looked awful….
    Why can’t these women age gracefully..especially if the husband is supposedly a well educated and sophisticated man while would he need a bimbo or a jacked up older woman as a partner..couldn’t she just have looked a little more normal ..that hair was awful with a capital A……

      I noticed that too. It was impossible not to motice that mess. Unfortunatly it is also impossible to unsee it

    I actually like what Emilia Clarke was wearing – colour me shocked. She should wear VB more often. Actually I would like to see more celebs wear VB’s creations, i have a soft spot for her designs. I like Cate Blanchett’s and Saorise dresses. Alicia’s was lovely till it got to the bottom, i hated that tinsel effect.

    Re: the winners. Not shocked at most of them but was surprised by Winslet’s win but then again the BATFA membership love her and i think the the double nom went against Alicia in the end (plus she’s still a newbie to the industry but she will get her awards in due time).

  16. Spike says:

    Tom’s veering into Joyce Wildenstein with the cat eyes look.

  17. SM says:

    OMG, Tom’s face!!!!!
    I finally got around watching the revenant this weekend. I think it is a good story exploring the topic of revenge and how it never gives what people expect from the act of revenge. It can’t bring back what is lost or fill the void the loss left. I also think ot is a cinematic masterpiece. And I am sure it truly was hard to pull off. While I need to say I am not a Leo fan, I do think that his performance in itself would get the attention and recognition. It is solid to be part of the awards season. Too bad he didn’t hire ONE awards expert who saw that and helped shape up a solid yet subtile campaign rather than being in everyones’ face so we can not wait for him to get that statue and just get the hell out of our sight.

    Tom’s face looks like it’s going to explode like the Aliens’ brains in that Tim Burton movie “Mars Attacks”.
