BAFTA TV Awards 2021: Celebrities arrive in glamor style at the annual ceremony

0

The 2021 BAFTA TV Awards will be one for the history books as stars unable to attend will be beamed onto the red carpet in hologram form.

But Oti Mabuse was one of the select celebrities to hit the red carpet in person on Sunday, when she arrived at the West London TV center in truly stunning style.

The Strictly Come Dancing star, 30, looked sensational as she stepped outside in a plunging cream dress, which featured a daring thigh-high slit.

High on a pair of silver strappy heels, the South African beauty’s dress of choice hugged and flattered her enviably tight figure as she turned up a storm for photographers.

With a pair of dazzling earrings to complement her gorgeous ensemble, the TV personality sported her honey brown locks in a playful bob, while her good looks were emphasized with a palette of shimmery makeup.

Also in attendance was AJ Odudu, who was stunned when she stepped outside in a red feathered one-shoulder dress, which had a backless feature.

This year, BAFTA stars celebrities who can’t be on the red carpet as holograms.

And ceremony hosts Stacey Dooley and Vick Hope will introduce the hologram guests to those who are actually present at the socially distancing ceremony.

About her red carpet role, Vick revealed last week: “If you’re anything like me, your WhatsApp groups will have been non-stop for the past year about a recent episode or moment in the latest TV drama, documentary, reality or even cooking show.

“I’ve fallen in love with TV all over again and that’s why I think Virgin Media’s BAFTAs feel extra special this year.

Being able to chat directly with the TV fans who voted for their favorite Must-See Moment nominee and connect them live on the red carpet with their favorite stars via holograms will be a unique, once in a lifetime experience. to be.

“I’m so excited to bring a little bit of this magic to the fans back home, it’s going to be an emotional one.”

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, TV fans will not be able to attend the red carpet as usual this year and some nominees will not be able to attend due to bubble filming.

All content is captured by a live stream camera and everyone at home can watch the action from the comfort of their living room.

The public can watch a live stream of the red carpet from 12 noon on Sunday and be part of the glamor by visiting Virgin’s website.

They can also choose from a selection of digital red carpet outfits to get into the Awards spirit and carpet-ready.

If selected, they’ll be blasted onto the red carpet and can even ask their favorite celeb a question with a video of the interaction sent to the fan afterward.

Several of the biggest TV moments of the year are celebrated on Sunday, with Diversity’s controversial BLM-inspired routine on Britain’s Got Talent, which led to 24,500 complaints to Ofcom, was in the ‘must see’ category.

The category, voted for by the public, also sees nods to Penelope being revealed as Lady Whistledown in Bridgerton and when Luke Skywalker appeared in the second season climax of The Mandalorian.

However, it is Small Ax leading the nominations this year with 15 nods.

The BBC One anthology film series, directed by Sir Steve McQueen, received six TV nominations and nine in the craft categories, including a nod to the miniseries gong alongside Normal People, Adult Material and I May Destroy You.

Small Ax – with five films telling stories about the lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the 1960s to the 1980s – also garnered two nominations for the lead role, with John Boyega and Shaun Parkes both nodding.

Letitia Wright, who also starred in the series, is in the running for the lead actress award, and she will face competition from Billie Piper (I Hate Suzie), Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People), Hayley Squires (Adult Material), Jodie Comer ( Killing Eve) and Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You).

Elsewhere, I May Destroy You star Paapa Essiedu will face John and Shaun for the Lead Actor award, as well as Normal People actor Paul Mescal, Baghdad Central’s Waleed Zuaiter and The Crown’s Josh O’Connor.

The Crown received 10 nominations – four for TV and six for the craft categories – including a nod to the Drama Series award alongside I Hate Suzie, Save Me Too and Gangs of London.

Other nods were This Country, Man Like Mobeen, Inside No. 9 and Ghosts for the Scripted Comedy Prize, and siblings and This Country creators Daisy May and Charlie Cooper received nominations for the Female and Male Performance in a Comedy Program gongs, respectively.

The ceremony will be hosted by Richard Ayoade, while Stacey and Vick will be presenting the red carpet.
