The Revenant and Mad Max: Fury Road clean up at 2016 BAFTAs

The Revenant was the big winner at last night's Baftas, taking home five awards. 

The grueling epic took home the gong for Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Sound, Best Director for Alejandro G Inarritu, and, as widely predicted, Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio.

Brie Larson won Best Actress for her role in Room, while Kate Winslet and Mark Rylance got the supporting nods for their roles in Steve Jobs and Bridge Of Spies. 

Brooklyn scored the coveted award for Outstanding British Film, while there were also wins for The Big Short and Spotlight in the screenwriting categories. 

Mad Max: Fury Road also had an excellent evening, taking home four awards, all in the more technical categories. 

The show was hosted by Stephen Fry at London's Royal Opera House.
