“The Revenant” has to be Leonardo DiCaprio’s sure ticket to an Oscar this year. Why? Because it’s basically a top win on every ceremony this awards season. For 2016, there’s not an award-giving institution where “The Revenant” goes home without a prize. On the 2016 DGA Awards winners list, the movie has a comfortable place on top.


On Saturday, stars and project productions were dressed up for a night filled of wins and losses in the 68th Directors Guild Awards. And for the team behind “The Revenant,” the magic remains on their masterpiece. Aside from Alejandro G. Iñárritu, others were named as the 2016 DGA Awards winners. Let’s get to know who they are in the full list below.

Aside from the titles, what the audience awaits during events like this one are the celebrities. One of them was the show’s presenter, “Spotlight” star Rachel McAdams, who was dazzling in a black halter gown. According to E!, stars can’t help but showcase their glam as the “countdown to Oscars continues.” Yet still, though “The Revenant” is continuously bagging Best Director and Best Actor awards, the race to the Best Picture for the Academy is slightly undecided, presents Deadline.
