Kate Middleton, Emma Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence: Best dressed at BAFTA 2018

"Three Billboards" is also nominated in the separate best picture category at Britain's equivalent of the Oscars.

Kate Middleton donned a dark green dress with a black ribbon cinched around her waist to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards Sunday night - despite the fact that almost all other women in attendance wore black.

So in order to side-step the issue, the 36-year-old opted for a deep, emerald green dress by Jenny Peckham which featured a dainty black ribbon waist.

But as members of the royal family are expected to remain neutral and not take part in political protests, Kate's choice found a middle way between making a statement and ignoring the gesture by wearing a bright colour.

Stars are starting to arrive for the British Academy Film Awards at London's Royal Albert Hall. The dress code black-out follows that of the Golden Globes in January and white roses for the Grammys.

It's the movement that's seen celebrities and activists don black to show their very public support for the "Time's Up" movement.

Arterton, who starred in a musical version of their story, said: "They're incredible because they really started the equal pay movement in the UK".

"She's an extraordinary woman and she can wear whatever she wants to wear."

Kate Winslet, Kristin Scott Thomas, Emma Thompson, Naomie Harris, Emma Watson and Gemma Arterton are among those saying that 2018 should be "the year that time was up on sexual harassment and abuse".

The letter in The Observer calls for an end to impunity and says "this movement is bigger than just a change in our industry alone".

Jennifer Lawrence was one of many actresses wearing black at the Baftas.
