Jessica, 30, was seen having a giggle with Patricia Clarkson, who was nominated for an Oscar for her turn in 2003's Pieces of April.

Clarkson looked striking in a black knee-length number with shoulder cut out detail.

The master film-maker himself was the star of the show however, and he looked delighted to be attending with his wife Helen.

impressive 11 nominations.
