What really happened at the BAFTA Awards

By Ben Barker - February 16 2016

We are currently in the middle of one of the biggest seasons of the year…the award season. There is always so much talk around who and what is going to win that it’s hard not to hear about all of the nominations and controversy that surrounds the ceremonies.

 

Every 14th of February it is London’s turn to host A-List celebrities and hand out awards for the films that have made us laugh or cry over the past year. The Bafta’s is almost an indicator for what is to come at the Oscars in a couple of weeks, so we were extremely happy when certain people won their awards…we have given you a breakdown of the winners and the best moments from this year’s Bafta Awards.

 

The Winners

 

Best Film – The Revenant

 

A film that is set in Northern America in the 1820’s follows the story of a frontiersman Hugh Glass who is played by non other than Leonardo DiCaprio. He is attacked by a bear in the wilderness and left for dead by his own men, a story of survival and true grit.

Best Female in a Leading Role – Brie Larson – Room

 

The story of a woman and her 5 year old son who have been held captive for years in an enclosed space finally gain freedom, allowing her son to experience the world for the very first time. A very moving film and a well deserved award for Brie Larson.
