BAFTA Awards 2016: Complete Winners List
The winners have been announced for the BAFTA Awards 2016 ahead of tonight’s airing on BBC America, so if you’re planning on waiting to see the ceremony, you might want to turn back now. That said, I can’t really say the winners are all that surprising.
The Revenant was the night’s big winner, earning four awards including Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio, Best Director for Alejandro G. Inarritu, and Best Film. Fellow Best Picture Oscar contender Mad Max: Fury Road also earned four awards, sweeping the technical categories, save for The Revenant‘s win in Cinematography, and the victory for Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the Visual Effects category. In acting categories, the wins for DiCaprio and Room star Brie Larson seems to basically cement them for Oscar gold, at this point, considering how strong they’ve been all season. But the wins for Kate Winslet (in Steve Jobs) and Mark Rylance (in Bridge of Spies) should give a slight boost to their campaigns in categories that are far from locked right now. Granted, you could write it off as a British awards ceremony simply choosing to honor British actors in lieu of an obvious frontrunner, but I’d like to think a little more thought went into it than that.
The BAFTA Awards ceremony airs tonight at 7:30 PM on BBC America, but if you can’t wait, check out the complete winners list below:
