The BAFTA awards, wedged as they are between the Super Bowl and the Oscars, could probably be forgiven for lacking the spectacle or pomp and circumstance of those events. And Sunday night’s ceremony, aside from host Stephen Fry’s regrettable remarks about one of the winners, was indeed a tasteful affair which offered up virtually no upsets, thereby keeping all monocles firmly in place. Trophies were once again rained on The Revenantthe film nabbed several big prizes including Best Film, Director, Actor, and Cinematographer, which should probably make “the living hell” of its production a distant memory for everyone involved.


Brie Larson, who’s already won over the Hollywood Foreign Press, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Critics, was named Best Actress for her moving performance in Room, and she was once again joined in the winner’s circle by Steve JobsKate Winslet, who chased her Golden Globes win for Best Supporting Actress with a BAFTA award. Mark Rylance picked up the Best Supporting Actor award for his work as Soviet intelligence officer Rudolf Abel in Bridge Of Spies, and John Boyega took home the Rising Star prize.

The screenwriting honors were split among The Big Short and Spotlight, with Adam McKay and Charles Randolph claiming victory in the Best Adapted Screenplay category while Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer picking up another Original Screenplay award.
