BAFTA - Leonardo Na Only You Waka Come

 Leonardo DiCaprio  picked up the top acting prizes at this year's BAFTA Awards while The Revenant was named Best Film.
Following on from his Golden Globes and SAG wins, DiCaprio was named Best Actor for his role in The Revenant during Sunday night's ceremony at the Royal Opera House.
After thanking a host of British stars including Gary Oldman, Daniel Day Lewis and Tom Hardy, he said:
“I would not be standing up here if it weren't for this person. I did not grow up in a life of privilege.
"This woman drove me three hours a day to a different school to show me a different opportunity. Mum, happy birthday. I love you very much."

Kate Winslet picked up the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs, telling the crowd what an amazing year it's been for women in film.

He added: “I'm going to share this award with all the young dreamers who are determined, hard-working and quite frankly amazing. This is for you.”
Australian comic Rebel Wilson brought the house down with her hilarious speech before presenting the Best Supporting Actor award.
