The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road Top BAFTA 2016 Winners List

The 2016 BAFTA Awards Ceremony has taken place in London. Hosted by Stephen Fry, the British Arts Film and Television Academy seeks to award the best films, directors, creative teams, and actors from the past year, and can often be a strong hint towards who might take home an Oscar at the end of February. In addition to celebrating the big Hollywood blockbusters, BAFTA also hands out awards for British films, as well as the 'EE Rising Star' Award, which recognizes a breakout star from the big screen.

In keeping with other award ceremonies already held this year (Golden Globes, Critics' Choice, Screen Actors Guild), Leonardo DiCaprio picked up the award for Best Actor for his role in The Revenant. Brie Larson also picked up Best Actress, again following the pattern of previous award shows. British favorite, Kate Winslet was recognized as Best Supporting Actress for her role in Steve Jobs; possibly pointing towards her and Alicia Vikander being the frontrunners in this category at the Academy Awards.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was also recognized at the BAFTA Awards, winning the award for Best Special Visual Effects. John Boyega was the recipient of the publicly voted EE Rising Star Award, having had a very successful year indeed, and winning over the hearts of movie goers with his endearing performance as Finn in the latest chapter of the ongoing Star Wars saga. 

The Revenant was the biggest winner on the night; picking up five BAFTA's in total: Best Sound, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Cinematography, and Best Film. This was closely followed by Mad Max: Fury Road, which took home four wins.
