They’re the The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards in case you wondering.
Last night saw another big night for Leo DiCaprio and the rest of the folks from The Revenant, the movie taking home five prizes including best actor. Mad Max: Fury Road was another stand out performer, four BAFTAs to take back to the dystopian wasteland they call home.
We’ll focus a little on Leo and the big guns before giving you the full list from Variety:
…[his] win for best actor in the film was met with a resounding cheer in the audience. It marked the thesp’s first BAFTA win after four noms (he was previously nominated for work on Martin Scorsese pics “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “The Departed” and “The Aviator”).
DiCaprio personally thanked co-star Tom Hardy for his “fierce loyalty not only as a collaborator but as a friend. I could not have done this journey without you.” He also thanked his mother in a moving speech, crediting her for supporting his acting career from the beginning.
