THE REVENANT has won the BAFTA award for Best Film of 2015 and with it another four trophies, making it the most rewarded film of the night. Mad Max: Fury Road came in behind it with four wins – Editing, Production Design, Makeup & Hair and Costume Design. The two films went head to head in just four categories and they split those wins 2/2. The two films will fight it out in no less than 10 categories at the Oscars in two weeks. Lots of history is being and will be made with these wins for The Revenant. Its BAFTA win marks the first time a film won Best Film and Director without a screenplay nomination. It’s also missing that nomination at the Oscars.

In all, BAFTA went pretty blockbuster heavy with its wins: The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens dominated the tech categories, leaving no room for quiet dramas like Bridge of Spies or Carol to find a way in.

The leading actor and actress categories went to the frontrunners who’ve already dominated this season – Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) and Brie Larson (Room). Their path to Oscar wins are now solidified and unbreakable. In the supporting categories it’s a different story. Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs) won supporting actress but wasn’t up against her main competition, Alicia Vikander in The Danish Girl, just as she was at the Golden Globes. Vikander competed in lead here and at the Globes. In their only head to head test so far, SAG, it was Vikander who triumphed. To date, the only person to even lose with a combination of GG and BAFTA has been Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle. Still, SAG is the better precursor overall but it could be a closer race than expected. In supporting actor, Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) bested Christian Bale (The Big Short) and SAG winner Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation) but without frontrunner Sylvester Stallone (Creed) here it’s sort of an empty win.

Spotlight and The Big Short managed single wins in the screenplay categories and Carol, the most nominated film at BAFTA was shut out. This is especially sour as it was also the top nominated film at The Golden Globes this year and was also shut out there.

There wasn’t much in the area of surprise wins here other than the Best Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer. Most thought Alex Garland (Ex Machina) had that in the bag but instead it went Naji Abu Nowar and Rupert Lloyd, the writer/director and producer (respectively) of the Oscar-nominated Jordanian film Theeb. Ironically, the other surprise was Theeb‘s loss in the Film Not in the English Language category. It lost to Argentina’s Wild Tales. Theeb was the only film of the five nominees to also be Oscar-nominated this year.
