Preparations are well and truly underway for Sunday night's BAFTA Awards in London. As Hollywood's biggest stars prepare to attend the 68th annual awards, staff are busy transforming the Royal Opera House for their arrival, including working on the all-important seating plan.

In the main hall, staff are busy setting up cardboard photographs of the attendees, including nominees Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch and Rosamund Pike.

Some of the other big names confirmed to attend the awards include Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Michael Keaton, Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes.

Nominees of note this year include Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is up for 11 awards, and The Theory of Everything, which has been put forward ten times, including in all four of the major categories.

Also hoping to take home one of the coveted awards are Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, who have both been nominated for their performances in The Imitation Game.

Whether they win or lose, all attendees at the 2015 BAFTAs will go home with a gift bag crammed with luxury goodies. This year's bag includes treats from luxury British brands such as Hackett, 88 Rue Du Rhone and Taittinger.
