Hollywood talents took their seats early as Bafta bosses prepared for the biggest night in the UK movie calendar.
Organisers of the EE British Academy Film Awards - taking place on Sunday - were marking out the stars' seats with photos on sticks ahead of Sunday's big night.
Dame Helen Mirren, Hugh Jackman, Javier Bardem and Jennifer Lawrence are also among the stars who will be treading the red carpet at Covent Garden for a ceremony to be screened by BBC1 on Sunday evening.
Some of the biggest names in the world from behind the scenes will also be there, with directors Quentin Tarantino, Sam Mendes, Steven Spielberg and Tim Burton donning their dinner suits for the occasion.
The event is being hosted by Stephen Fry and will feature a live performance from Paloma Faith.
