The 'Gravity' star was absent from the award ceremony of BAFTA, held in London on Sunday night because her son, Louis, wasn't feeling well, the New York Post reported.

According to the sources, the 49-year-old was likely to walk the red carpet along with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Prince William and Catherine.

'Gravity' starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock was big winner at the award function, where the director of the movie Alfonso Cuaron took the award for the 'Best Director' home.
