The Baftas 2016 winners and highlights

You might as well have called it "The Leo Show" instead of The Baftas last night, but we're super glad it was. Leonardo DiCaprio has made some serious waves with The Revenant, scooping even more awards at last night's ceremony. All he needs now is that pesky Oscar that has eluded him for so many years! 

As for the show itself, well, we were loving the kiss cam they had going on at the beginning. PDAs are always cringy but more so when forced with someone you barely shake hands with let alone kiss on the cheek, which is why it was TV gold. Well done Baftas for finding a humorous way to celebrate Valentine's Day! Rebel Wilson shared a smooch with Eddie Izzard and it was hilarious:

Making headlines is also the fact that delightful Julie Walters accidentally lost a diamond earring which was, so she says, "probably worth a small house".  So if anyone finds it, either hand it back or head towards the nearest estate agents for a quote. But more importantly than the loss of diamonds, we all got to see Rose and Jack aka Kate and Leo back together again arm in arm, and even though she's happily married we still insist these two would have had the best relationship ever. Oh, and Kate scooped an award too, because she's just as awesome as her lifelong bezzie. 

But Leo wasn't the only winner of the night, obviously. In case you missed last night's programme amongst all your Valentine's Day plans, here's a round-up of all categories and winners:
