This was a huge night for DiCaprio with his first ever BAFTA win. He was previously nominated on 3 different occasions but failed to win the coveted prize until now. DiCaprio’s close friend and former “Titanic” costar Kate Winslet also won a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Steve Jobs”.

Brie Larson, who was absent from the award show (she’s currently shooting “Kong: Skull Island“), was named best actress for her role claustrophobic drama “Room”.

Brie, looking for a little bit of something light and nice to do after Room, is wrestling a large gorilla in Australia,” said “Room” director Lenny Abrahamson as he collected the award on her behalf.
