Brie Larson is one of this year’s most talked about stars. And after scooping the Best Actress award at the 2016 Golden Globes, we couldn’t wait to see her rocking the red carpet at the BAFTAs.
As the red carpet attendees lined up to show off their gorgeous dresses, we were waiting patiently to see what the 26-year-old, who was nominated for Best Actress, would be wearing this year.
Versace? Calvin Kein? Which designer would it be for this ceremony? We could hardly wait!
But imagine ours (and everyone else who watching the BAFTAs)’ surprise when Brie didn’t turn up for the red carpet.
‘WHERE IS #BrieLarson? #BAFTA #bafta2016 #BAFTAs’, one concerned fan wrote on Twitter.
‘PLEASE TELL ME BRIE LARSON WILL BE AT THE #BAFTAS TONIGHT?!?!’ another user tweeted.
We were thinking the same thing. And guess what? She only went and won the Best Actress trophy for her portrayal of a Ma in Room, beating off Alicia Vikander, Cate Blanchett and Maggie Smith. But she STILL WASN’T THERE.
And those watching seemed just as devastated as us when she wasn’t present to collect her award…
‘The only tragedy of the baftas is @brielarson not there to accept in her witty flawless way. I NEED IT IN MY LIFE DAMMIT’, one fan tweeted during the ceremony.
So, where WAS the actress-of-the-moment on such a crucial night? Well, according to People, Brie is currently filming in Australia. Oh.
