"Spotlight", also an Oscar best picture contender, was named
best film by the more-than 250 members of the Broadcast Film
DiCaprio took the best actor prize for his lead role survival
drama "The Revenant" while Larson won best actress for
portraying a young mother held captive with her son in "Room".
The latest ceremony in the awards season drew a host of
celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Helen Mirren and Kirsten
Dunst and Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan.
"I was asleep in my bed in New York and my mam ran into me and
she was sobbing and I didn't know if it was a good thing or a
bad thing that she was crying and it was a good thing," Ronan
said of when she learned of her Oscar nomination for "Brooklyn".
"... She came in and gave me a big hug and we cried and freaked
out for a second and then it was straight into press and all
that but afterwards I got to go shopping to kit out my apartment
which was nice."
