The British Academy of Film and Television Arts 2016 awards turned out to be a sneak-peek of what we can expect at the Oscars.

The Revenant - where Leonardo DiCaprio ate raw bison in a bid to finally qualify for the coveted golden Oscar trophy - turned out to be the BAFTA's Valentine this year, winning Best Film, Best Actor and Best Director.

However the real winner of the award show was Leonardo and Dame Maggie Smith's Kiss Cam moment.



Afterall who wouldn't want to kiss Maggie Smith? That Dame's quite a firecracker. #TeamMcgonagall #VioletCrawleyForTheWin

Stanley Tucci and Cuba Gooding Jr, Bryan Cranston and Julianne Moore, Eddie Izzard and Rebel Wilson all got caught on Kiss Cam and responded with an appropriate amount of enthusiasm.

The only buzzkills were Micheal Fassbender and Alicia Vikander - who are dating in real life. Come on, people. Where's the V-Day mush?
