Posted Sunday February 10, 2013 5:05 PM GMT

The Royal Opera House was the place to be in London tonight (February 10), as Gemma Arterton joined her fellow celebrities for the 2013 BAFTA Awards.

Clad in a designer ensemble, the “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” star spent a few moments posing for the paparazzi before retreating inside for all the action.

And this year the competition is especially fierce, with plenty of worthy contenders in each and every film and television category.

Nominees for Best Film include “Argo,” “Les Miserables,” “Life of Pi,” “Lincoln,” and “Zero Dark Thirty,” while the Outstanding British Film hopefuls are “Anna Karenina,” “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Les Miserables,” “Seven Psychopaths,” and “Skyfall.”
