Todd Haynes' drama took five prizes, including film of the year and LGBTQ film of the year.

The film won top honors for film of the year and received gongs for director Haynes, lead actress Cate Blanchett and screenplay.

Haynes also took the Wilde Artist of the Year Award (named for the group’s “patron saint,” Oscar Wilde), while the film was named LGBTQ Film of the Year as well. Leonardo DiCaprio won the lead actor prize for his performance in “The Revenant.”
