The BAFTA Awards 2016 Winners

The stars celebrated in style at the BAFTAS - see the lucky winners celebrating here

The red carpet impressed with big names such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Idris Elba and Maggie Smith, and inside the Royal Opera House, the British Academy’s guests couldn’t wait to toast a fine year for the film industry.

This year’s winners varied – from blockbusters like The Revenant to many wins for Mad Max, and two nods the the Oscars-snubbed Star Wars. Brie Larson was awarded the Best Actress award and Mark Rylance took the Best Supporting actor gong, while the BAFTA Fellowship was awarded to Sidney Poitier, but all were missing from the ceremony due to busy schedules or ill health.

Unsurprisingly the biggest award, Best Film, was given to The Revenant – a picture that’s been sweeping the board at awards ceremonies this year and looks to be in with a good chance to continue to impress.

Look back at all the winners from the BAFTA Awards 2015…

First up, Leonardo DiCaprio beat competition from Eddie Redmayne and Michael Fassbender to win the Best Actor award. His awards season wins have been much-documented in the hopes that 2016 will be the year that he finally takes away an Oscar. With a Golden Globe and now a BAFTA under his belt, even we’ll be watching the Oscars from behind our hands!
