Survival drama "The Revenant" was top winner at Britain's biggest movie awards Sunday, taking best film prize and honors for leading actor Leonardo DiCaprio and director Alejandro G. Inarritu. The movie earned five British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, including for cinematography and sound, at a ceremony in London, two weeks before it vies for Hollywood's top honors, the Oscars.The film, which has already picked up several trophies in this awards season and leads Oscar nominations, sees DiCaprio portray fur-trapper Hugh Glass, who after being attacked by a bear, is left for dead by his companions during an 1820s expedition. Inarritu, the Mexican director whose film "Birdman" won last year's best picture Oscar, said the prizes were "overwhelming".
