Following on from her big win at the Golden Globes, Larson yet again received the Best Actress trophy for her role as 'Ma' in Room, which is based on the book of the same name by Irish author Emma Donoghue, and tells the story of a young woman (Larson) and her five-year-old son (seven-year-old newcomer Jacob Tremblay) who are held captive for six years in a tiny shed.

The 26-year-old actress won the coveted award over Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn), Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl), Cate Blanchett (Carol) and Maggie Smith (The Lady in the Van).

Speaking to RTÉ on the red carpet Room author Emma Donoghue praised director Lenny Abrahamson for portraying the movie beautifully on the big screen.
-
"This was a beautiful indie film we'd made and I thought it would have the fortune of most indie films. I didn't know we'd get taken this seriously and that people would realise what a big film Lenny [Abrahamson] has managed to make out of a small setting," Donoghue said.
-
"It's just superb and such a testament to Irish film-making. I mean the Irish Film Board has a relatively small budget but by God are the results beautiful."

Leonardo DiCaprio continued to add to his award season accolades for epic endurance story The Revenant with a win at the prestigious award ceremony, succeeding in the Best Lead Actor category.

In the film DiCaprio plays frontiersman Hugh Glass who is hell bent on revenge after being left for dead in the wilderness following the bear attack. His role of a fur trapper fighting for his life has earned him his sixth Oscar nomination with many critics believing this year could finally be his time to shine.
