Yesterday were the BAFTA Awards, a wonderful opportunity for us to appreciate everything that is British. I’ve previously mentioned my love for award shows and the BAFTAs are important for two reasons: 1. They’re a great predictor for what will happen at the Oscars and 2. they largely focus on British talent. While I am a big fan of all things British, I think their actors are the biggest draw. Incredibly swoon worthy ♥.
Before I start posting photoset upon photoset of British men, I can’t ignore the ladies. Britain’s leading ladies were looking fabulous. So many of my favourite actresses in one place!But the main focus of the evening was the men – Britain’s finest actors were on display. So many suits and so much sexy, all in one place.I think the only category anyone cared about was Best Actor. A showdown between two of the UK’s biggest stars: Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne. Having now seen both movies I can say both of these men were brilliant and their multiple nominations this year are well deserved. Eddie Redmayne and his adorable awkward self easily ran away with this one (and this win now makes him the heavy favourite for the Oscar!). I’m going to be sad when this awards season is over; I could look at photos of Eddie Redmayne on the Red Carpet all day.
But I don’t think Benedict was too concerned with his loss. On his arm the entire evening was his pregnant fiancé, Sophie Hunter. These two stole the show on the Red Carpet. He never left her side and seriously, the way he looks at her is enough to make every woman jealous. Even if you don’t want Benedict to be the one staring deeply into your eyes, I think every girl would love someone to look at them like this.
There is one dreamy British actor missing from this post so far. I had my doubts as to whether we’d get to see his pretty face and fun antics… but I was not disappointed. Tom Hiddleston made an appearance at the BAFTAs and the internet (or at least I) couldn’t handle it.
British men in suits are definitely one of my favourite things, incredibly sexy. Tom graced the Red Carpet with his signature grin and even a bit of a smoulder. And on top of that, he was taking selfies with fans and simply being the most perfect human being on the planet. Could Tom Hiddleston be more perfect??
Which brings me to the main reason I was posting today! I just became distracted by Britain’s finest along the way. In the past few days I’ve found myself searching for a Loki helmet necklace. It’s going to complete an outfit I have planned in the upcoming week and while I could easily order one, it just wouldn’t arrive in time. All I want is Loki. Everything Loki. Everything Tom Hiddleston.
And it just happens to be his birthday today! Let’s all wish him a Happy 34th Birthday! I can’t wait for another year of Loki and Red Carpets and adorable antics.
All you fangirls out there, let me know how you’re celebrating this special day!
