Best Film - The Revenant

The real winner of the night was The Revenant, which took home five awards. The biggest surprise was perhaps Mad Max: Fury Road which managed to take home four awards, and Leonardo DiCaprio managed to win the Best Actor award... so the obvious question is... will this finally be his year at the Oscars? He must be feeling pretty confident!

Finally, seeing Sir Sidney Poitier win the Academy Fellowship Award was a very touching tribute to an incredible man and actor who has done so much, not only for the movie industry, but for the recognition of minorities in Hollywood. What a guy!
