Honored by the Brits for their Golden Globe nominations, some of Hollywood's finest headed to the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills for the BAFTA Tea Party on Saturday (January 11).

Enjoying the refined affair were Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Benedict Cumberbatch, Aaron Paul, and Cate Blanchett, among others.

The relaxed event let the stars eat, drink, and chit-chat before getting glammed up for the big event on Sunday night.

Speaking about winning the Britannia Award at last year's BAFTA ceremony, Benedict shared that evening, "It was a really special night, and especially to receive it from two really good friends that I've known for a while, Chiwetel (Ejiofor) and Alice (Eve), that was really lovely. And what they said broke my heart actually, because that was my favourite moment. They spoke about me as their friend first and foremost and that choked me up."
