Hollywood's finest descended on London's Royal Opera House for the EE BAFTA Film Awards 2016 on Sunday
The Revenant was the biggest winner on the night, with a Leading Actor prize for Leonardo DiCaprio as well as Best Film and Best Director accolades
Mad Max: Fury Road won a respectable four prizes, including Editing and Costume Design
Brie Larson was named Leading Actress, while Kate Winslet and Mark Rylance picked up the Supporting Actress and Actor awards

The Revenant was the big winner at The EE British Academy Film Awards 2016 on Sunday night.

The gritty revenge drama took home five of the major awards including Best Film, best Director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu and Leading Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio at the star-studded ceremony, held at London's Royal Opera House.

It also scooped the gongs for Cinematography and Sound, bringing its total wins to five and narrowly beating Mad Max: Fury Road, which took home four trophies.


This marks Leonardo's very first BAFTA win; he has been nominated on three previous occasions but failed to receive the coveted prize until now, making him a frontrunner in the same category at the Academy Awards on February 28.


He beat Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl), Bryan Cranston (Trumbo), Matt Damon (The Martian), Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) to the Leading Actor crown.
The Revenant centres on 1820s frontiersman Hugh Glass, who is left for dead by members of his own hunting team.
He treks across the wilderness, hellbent on tracking down John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), the former confidant who betrayed and abandoned him.



Inarritu paid tribute to his main man DiCaprio during his top Director acceptance speech, declaring, 'It is a true honour to be nominated with such amazing directors. Leo, your work your talent your commitment every day kept this film breathing.'
The Cinematography award went to The Revenant's Emmanuel Lubezki, marking the film maven's his fourth BAFTA overall and third win in a row.
Mad Max: Fury Road was another success story on the night - the blockbuster was presented with the trophies for Make Up and Hair, Editing, Production Design and Costume Design.
The coveted Leading Actress prize went to breakout star Brie Larson for Room, however, the 26-year-old beauty was a no-show at the ceremony due to filming commitments in Australia.


Bridge Of Spies star Mark Rylance was awarded the Supporting Actor gong, while Kate Winslet was presented with Supporting Actress for Steve Jobs.
Despite missing out on the best Director award, Steven Spielberg was thrilled Mark had emerged victorious, taking to the stage to accept the gong on his behalf since he was busy performing on Broadway.
Meanwhile, Winslet - who enjoyed a friendly reunion with her Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio in the winners' room - delivered an emotional speech, telling the crowd, 'What an incredible year to be nominated, what an incredible year to be in this room.
'It has been an extraordinary year for women and I am so proud to stand alongside you Jennifer Julie Rooney and Alicia your performances are so extraordinary. I really am quite overwhelmed actually.'


Brooklyn took home the first prize of the night at the BAFTAs, receiving the Outstanding British Film accolade for the big screen adaptation of the Colm Tóibín novel.
Director John Crowley enthused: 'One of the things this film is about is the kindness of strangers and as the film has made its way out in the world the warmth of the response has been amazing.'
Quentin Tarrantino's The Hateful Eight - which was snubbed in the major categories - was awarded Original Music for Ennio Morricone's score.
Asif explained: 'We really fell in love with her when making the film. And our aim and mission was really to try and tell the truth about her.
'To show the world what an amazing person she was, how intelligent, how witty, how beautiful she was, before it all kind of got out of control and went a bit crazy.'



The British Short Film prize was presented to Operator, while British Short Animation went to Edmond.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens emerged triumphant in the Special Visual Effects category - and it was a lucky night for the franchise since John Boyega was awarded the EE Rising Star prize, beating hot favourite Dakota Johnson
The 23-year-old British actor also beat Taron Egerton, Brie Larson and Bel Powley to the win in the category, which celebrates young actors under the age of 30.
He said: 'I want to thank God for this moment. I have some very special people in my life... I'm going to share this award with all the young dreamers who are hard-working... This is for you.'


Inside Out was crowned top Animated Film, while Outstanding Debut went to Naji Abu Nowar for Theeb, and best Adapted Screenplay went to The Big Short.
Spotlight's Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer were given the Original Screenplay prize, while the Film Not in the English Language prize went to Wild Tales.
Angels Costumes received a special shout out thanks to the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award and the Fellowship Recipient was Sir Sidney Poitier, the highest accolade that BAFTA can bestow, in recognition of his outstanding career in film
Sir Sidney was not in attendance due to ill health, so the award was presented to him by Jamie Foxx and his daughter, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, in his Los Angeles home.
During the ceremony filmed tributes were given by Oprah Winfrey, Noel Clarke and his To Sir, With Love co-star, Lulu.
The Awards were hosted for an eleventh year by Stephen Fry and held at London’s Royal Opera House .
