The Oscars took place last night, and not only was it a glittering event filled with A-listers in their finest finery, it was also the night we bid goodbye to the 'Leo can't win an Oscar meme' that has brought us all untold joy in the last couple of years. So who, besides Leo, took home a golden fella last night? Check out our list of the winners and the losers...

It was a particularly excellent evening for Mad Max: Fury Road, who (probably) rejoiced in Valhalla after winning an amazing SIX Oscars last night out of it's 10 nominations. The Revenant closely followed with a much deserved three wins and 12 nominations, though lost out on the much-coveted Best Film award to the acclaimed Spotlight.
