Awards season has almost come to a complete close, but while The Revenant may be picking up ever more speed in the Oscar race, one critics group has stayed faithful to one of the former critics' favourites: Spotlight. Tom McCarthy's film won four awards from the Press Academy's Satellite Awards, while The Revenant won just one, for lead actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
