This year's British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) Awards kicked off with a pash. Quite a few of them actually.

The awards ceremony, which is being held today (Valentine's Day, London time), had its very own Kiss Cam which focused in on brilliantly mismatched star couples as they went in for a snog.

Celebrity pair-ups included Bryan Cranston and Julianne Moore, Eddie Izzard and Rebel Wilson, and Dame Maggie Smith and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Fans loved the award show's stunt, posting their approval on social media site Twitter.

However one celebrity couple wasn't going to give the crowd what they wanted. When the Kiss Cam focused in on Steve Jobs star Michael Fassbender and his rumoured girlfriend, Alicia Vikander, who is up for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress for The Danish Girl, the pair just had a giggle instead of moving in for a kiss.
