Hello, welcome back. We are now inside the Royal Opera house in
London's Covent Garden. The 2016 British Academy film awards are just
coming to an end. Quite a mixed bag of results. Let's go through
everything we know at the end of another star-studded night. Very
good attendance on the red carpet a couple of hours ago. Jason Solomons
has been watching the ceremony. Always fun to compare what you
thought a few hours ago with what has been happening. No obvious
winner, a couple of big wins for the Revenant. It seems to be pulling
ahead. Leonardo DiCaprio winning Best actor for his role. Also
winning Best Director. That has pulled ahead. Four awards. Mad Max
also with four awards in the technical character is --
categories. They are the films were the most awards. Great win for
Leonardo DiCaprio, we felt it was his time. Probably means it is his
Oscar time. After four five attempts, he may scoop the big one.
We will find that many Oscars only a couple of weeks away. If we think
about Best actress, that has been interesting. Cate Blanchett Mohammed
Fatau editor certainly gave her the award for best outfit of the night.
No doubt about that. She did not pick up the win. The big surprise of
the night, Best actress. Very hard to call. Cate Blanchett winning on
the red carpet, up against Matty Smith. The person who won middle,
Brie Larson, for her role in the film Room. It is an Irish film. Her
performance was superb. Fiercely protective mother, protecting her
child from the outside world. Bringing him up on her own. I love
the film, very pleased for bringing this new, in. To beat Matty Smith
and Cate Blanchett, a big shock. She was not here, she did not fancy her
chances, I think. She's filming King Kong in Australia. She was nominated
in the Rising Star award. That went to a young man with a great future
ahead of him. Very popular and confident on the red carpet. He was
confident, the coolest man in the house, John Boyega, the young star
of Star Wars. That is voted for by the public. Just showing his
popularity. He gave the best acceptance speech, cool, gracious,
dignified. He thanked all the people who brought him up, his agent, with
him since 16. He looked great in attacks either, in thing at the
diversity issue. -- tinting. Great to see BAFTA nominating this young
talented black man. Everybody relieved and delighted for him. Such
a charming man, terrific actor. Interesting you mentioned the
diversity issue. So much criticism at the Oscars nominations.
Unbelievable lack of diversity. It has been a debate in the run-up to
the BAFTAs. You were able to watch the ceremony more closely than me.
Rebel Wilson making some choice comments. The Australian comedic
actress, said she had never been invited to the Oscars, because they
are racist. She made a joke about Idris Elba, up for an award. A lot
of people thought he would get that best supporting actor. In the end it
went to Mark Rylance, for his performance in Bridge Of Spies, the
Steven Spielberg film. Much beloved character actor is superb and the
role. Fede thing we can say that is anti-diversity. A terrific role, he
nailed it. Very pleased Mark Rylance won that. I predicted it, a superb
supporting role. He brings different colour to that movie working
alongside Tom Hanks as an accused Russian spy. Steven Spielberg was
here tonight. We saw him on the red carpet. Mark Rylance, also nominated
for the Oscars. That will be interesting. He is someone getting
such a reputation in the UK, but his initial reputation is very much as
eight superb theatre actor. He's had a blossoming with Wolf Hall, will
that play into the academy's decision? He is liked? I think so.
That was a terrific successful BBC America. Great success on the stage
in New York. That is where he is now. Could not accept the award. I
think he will make Los Angeles for the Oscars. Relative newcomer for
the big screen. That works in his favour. We are not really knowing
him, he's fresh. The trick of Bridge Of Spies, less is more, the less we
see of him, the more you wish this character was more knowable. It is
the BAFTAs, the British Academy Awards. They have two categories,
best film, waiting to hear what has been chosen, but they have Best
British film. Really striking year. Some cracking entries. Almost to the
point, looking at the a few weeks ago, we thought some of those should
be up for best film. We will go with Best British film before we bring
you best film. Best British film, delighted to say that went to
Brooklyn, wonderful tale, beautifully told by John Crowley, a
young Irish girl leaving 1950s rural Ireland to set up a new life in
1950s New York in Brooklyn. At a border house run by Julie Walters.
Charming slow burner, big choice at the end. It has captured hearts.
Best picture nomination at the Oscars. Deservedly winning Best
British film. Beautifully written by Nick Hornby. Well pleased for that
one. It stood head and shoulders with the big hitters. Best film.
Maybe could not cope with the best film, may I reveal it? It is a clue.
Everyone is filtering out. As we thought. It is The Revenant. Finally
it has won. Best picture at the BAFTAs. That means the director
winning Best Director, that is the big one to beat. The success of the
Oscars season. Leonardo DiCaprio left for dead, after being famously
mauled by a bear in the woods. Coming back to wreak revenge on
those who left him behind. A tale of injuries with Leonardo DiCaprio
crawling through deep valleys, snow, eating raw fish, liver, growing a
long beard. Sheltering in a horse-macro. Extraordinary long
movie. -- sheltering in a horse. As spectacular as the Canadian scenery
is, it is enduring. It is extraordinary. The director winning
four Birdman last year, extraordinary run of form for him.
Most people will flock to the film because of Leonardo DiCaprio
committee carries the movie, we are with him every step of the way.
Every crawl of the way. It is a real match a film. If you like survival
programmes, you will like the Reverend. What you make of so much
talk of what phenomenally hard work physically it was, to make this
film? Filming in very cold temperatures. The wonderful
cinematography coming at a price, the cinematographer only wanted to
use natural light, they could only film for several hours a day. They
like to say this is the hard work, stressing that, focusing on the art.
Film crews have warmers for their feet, nice trailers, cups of tea.
I'm surely not -- Sean Leo have a warm glass of brandy at the end of
the night. The most important thing is the picture at the end. Epic tale
of so bridal -- survival, everyone was impressed. It is not a banner
year, because the spread of the awards. Mad Max, the film I don't
understand, they go for a drive, turn back again. It's got a lot of
awards, Best costume, I could wear a T-shirt, winning that award. Carole
the film missing out. Wonderful film, I feel bad about it. It was
very spectacular. Talking at the start of the programme the numbers,
Carole coming in with nine nominations, I think it has not come
away with anything. The cupboard is bare. A real shame. One of those
movies, very cocooned in its own beauty. When they push to vote at
the end of the night, does not quite take flight. It smoulders. A slow
burning cigarette. Without catching fire. That is the problem Carole
had, could not swayed voters to for it, even though it is a swoon of a
film. Best of dementia read. Something I loved, even though I
found it sad to watch. Amy, the director is a wonderful man, works
in a journalistic fashion. Made the film that Ayrton Senna. I was the
last person who thought I would be interested in that, but it was
absolutely gripping. He worked the same here. I'm absolutely delighted
for him. Amy is a London film about a London icon who came to a tragic
end. The story of Amy Winehouse. We are witnessing a tragedy before our
very eyes. He has changed the way documentaries are seen. Not only a
successful documentary, in the cinema is, second most successful
documentary of all time. Changing the way we are perceiving
documentaries. Cinematic events using real-life footage to play a
character. Amy Winehouse plays herself, Ayrton Senna plays herself.
He's beginning work on a new icon, Diego Maradona. Could be here in a
few years' time talking about that one. I'm sure it will be brilliant.
I may enjoy that, and I am not a football fan. That is how clever he
is. A couple of things we have not mentioned. Spotlight, the film about
the Boston Globe, the fantastic undercover reporting that eventually
won a Pulitzer prize, and a covering abuse in the Catholic Church. It did
take home the prize for best original screenplay. A film about
writing, building your case, journalism winning the writing prize
tonight. Please for the film. Tom McCarthy, the director, wrote the
screenplay. He talked very movingly tonight about how he told the story.
Not a story everyone wanted told. They had to fight to get it told.
The story about the investigative team at the Boston Globe, back in
2000. So old-fashioned, people waiting for the phone, typing away.
As journalists, we have a soft spot for it. In America, do not
discounted. Liberal Hollywood credentials, the great ensemble
cast, we will see that making a few steps towards glory on Oscars night.
The only one to beat is The Revenant do. I know the British Academy would
say, we are our own people, these are our awards, what Britain has
chosen, but it is hard not to just think about the Oscars, only a
couple of weeks away. As a closing thought, because I think you are
missing a party, that is the one to watch overall? It is now. The big
story, Leonardo DiCaprio finally winning the Best actor award.
Anything that is the story, Leonardo DiCaprio blossoming as a movie star.
We have seen in grown-up on-screen, the Basketball Diaries, Romeo and
Juliet, Titanic. He is a man now, winning an Oscar, winning a BAFTA.
He is the star of the night. Thanks for talking us through the night.

all, the party just beginning at the Royal Opera house in London's Covent
