Taylor Swift was nominated for a Grammy but when the show kicked off on Sunday night, the pop star was nowhere to be seen.
Swifties were wondering what Taylor was up to that would make her miss such a big event. It turns out, she was busy supporting her boyfriend Joe Alwyn at a BAFTA afterparty instead.
After all, Joe Alwyn’s film The Favourite was nominated for 12 awards at the British Academy Film Awards and is also nominated for 10 Academy Awards — much more than Taylor Swift’s single Grammy nomination.
Though Joe Alwyn wasn’t up for any awards himself, his film ended up taking home seven BAFTA Awards on Sunday night. The success of The Favourite was celebrated online, and no one seemed happier than Taylor Swift.
Swift didn’t even mention the Grammys on social media. Ultimately, Ariana Grande’s Sweetener beat out Taylor Swift’s Reputation — and she wasn’t in attendance at the awards show either.
At the BAFTA Awards, Joe Alwyn walked the red carpet alone, continuing their trend of keeping their relationship private. Only later, Taylor and Joe were spotted at the British Vogue and Tiffany & Co. afterparty.
According to Page Six, the elusive pair were seen leaving Annabel’s Member’s Club in Mayfair while holding hands.
Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn began dating in 2016 and in the time since, have successfully kept much of their relationship private, unlike many of Taylor’s relationships before him.
