15 February 2016 - BATFA Awards
BAFTAs 2016: the winners in full
It’s the biggest night in British film, an important bellwether for the Oscars, and a key contributor to the carpeting industry (at least, for those in red). The 69th annual British Academy Film Awards took place in a glitzy ceremony at London’s Royal Opera House tonight, with The Revenant and Mad Max: Fury Road emerging as the big winners with five and four BAFTAs respectively. As for the remaining contenders? Well, no other film walked away with more than one bronze mask.

DiCaprio had been here three times previously, losing for The Aviator, The Departed and The Wolf of Wall Street.
This year the prize was his and he remains hot favourite to win at the Oscars. Accepting the award DiCaprio said he had been hugely influenced by British actors including Tom Courtenay, Gary Oldman, Peter O’Toole and Daniel Day Lewis.

Australian director George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road has picked up four awards at British Academy Film Awards but Cate Blanchett missed out on winning best actress.
The 46-year-old was nominated for best actress for her role in the lesbian love story Carol.
But the award went to American Brie Larson for her role in Room as a young mother held hostage with her son.
Mad Max was not nominated for best film, director or acting but picked up awards for best editing (Margaret Sixel), best costume design (Jenny Beavan), best production design (Colin Gibson, Lisa Thompson) and best make-up and hair (Lesley Vanderwalt, Damian Martin).

The head of the British Academy Film and Television Awards says its annual ceremony does not feature more ethnic minority nominees because the film industry itself is not diverse enough.
Amanda Berry says she supports a peaceful protest against the lack of diversity outside the star-studded event, being held in London on Sunday.
Berry told the Daily Telegraph newspaper that not enough movies are made with diverse talent so "the pool of people to draw award winners from isn't diverse enough." She added that "people can only vote on what they've seen."
