Britain has honoured the cream of international show business in a glittering ceremony in London.

Australians have emerged winners from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) with four awards going to Mad Max: Fury Road for makeup, production design, editing and costume design.

But Cate Blanchett missed out on the best actress award for her role in Carol, with Brie Larson instead honoured for her role in Room.

Epic adventure film The Revenant was awarded best film and Leonardo DiCaprio picked up best actor for his role in the brutal tale of survival.

Aussie apocalyptic adventure Fury Road, released last year and 30 years after the last Mad Max, received seven nominations.




Director George Miller missed out on a personal nomination but the film received acknowledgement in the categories of cinematography, editing, production design, costume design, makeup and hair, sound and special visual effects.

But the film missed out on the awards for sound and special effects and John Seale, who came out of retirement for the film, also missed out on the award for cinematography.

The veteran cinematographer, who turned 70 during filming, said the movie was worth coming back to work for.
