Survival drama The Revenant dominated Sunday's British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards, with director Alejandro González Iñárritu and actor Leonardo DiCaprio both taking top prizes.

The epic, which is based the story of fur-trapper Hugh Glass' recovery from a bear attack, scooped five awards, including best film, best cinematography and best sound. The cast and crew will be hoping the BAFTAs provide a reliable indicator for the Oscars, which take place on February 28.

DiCaprio said he was "humbled and honored" to receive the award and cited the influence of British actors, including Gary Oldman and Daniel Day Lewis, on his career. The 41-year-old star also used the limelight to wish his mother a happy birthday. Iñárritu dedicated the award to his wife, with whom he celebrates his 24th anniversary on Monday.

Apocalyptic thriller Mad Max: Fury Road picked up four awards, including best costume design and best makeup, while the latest installment in the Star Wars series scooped two gongs. U.S. actress Brie Larson won best leading actress for starring as a kidnapped mother in Room .
