Mad Max: Fury Road, Spotlight and The Revenant are the big winners at 2016 Oscars

Mad Max: Fury Road, Spotlight and The Revenant were the big winners at last night's (February 28th) Oscars. 

George Miller's long-awaited Mad Max was the night's biggest winner, taking home six Oscars in all, but none in any of the major categories. 

Leonardo Di Caprio picked up the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in The Revenant, his fifth attempt to score the award, while the movie also saw Alejandro González Iñárritu win for Best Director and Emmanuel Lubezki win for Cinematography. It missed out on Best Picture though, that went to journalism drama Spotlight, which also won for Best Original Screenplay. 

As expected Brie Larson triumphed in the Best Actress category for her role in Room, while Mark Rylance beat favourite Sylvester Stallone to win Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Bridge Of Spies. In the Supporting Actress race it was Alicia Vikander who triumphed, winning for her turn in The Danish Girl. 

There were also wins for The Big Short, which saw Adam McKay and Charles Randolph win Best Adapted Screenplay, Amy, which won Best Documentary, and Inside Out, which took home Best Animated Feature. Sam Smith also picked up an Oscar for 'Writing's On The Wall', his song for Spectre.
