Wilderness drama The Revenant, starring Leonardo DiCaprio has dominated this year's Baftas. The film which is being seen as a key predictor of success at the upcoming Oscars was named best film. It took top honours in a number of categories with Leonardo DiCaprio winning best actor and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu bagging best director. 
The Mexican director described the win as overwhelming. He said, DiCaprio's talent and commitment to the risky project had kept the film breathing. The ceremony which was held at London's Royal Opera House yesterday was hosted by Stephen Fry. Apocalyptic action movie Mad Max: Fury Road took home four awards for make-up and hair, editing,

costumes and production design. Brie Larson won the best leading actress award for her role as a kidnapped mother in Room. 
Steve Jobs star Kate Winslet was named best supporting actress while Mark Rylance won best supporting actor for his role as British-born Soviet agent in Bridge of Spies. The first award of the night, for outstanding British film, went to period drama Brooklyn. Emmanuel Lubezki bagged award for cinematography for his work on The Revenant. The Baftas have largely avoided the diversity row that has engulfed this year's Oscars. Though a campaign group staged a protest at the BAFTA award ceremony over the lack of diversity in the entertainment industry.
