Golden Globe Awards Recipients

All in all, as another Golden Globes comes and goes, we are officially in the midst of awards season. Aaron Sorkin won Best Screen Play for a Motion Picture.

As expected, the film "Inside Out" was declared the Best Animated Film, while the Hungarian film "Son of Saul" won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film. This win gives a boost for the "The Revenant" in the Oscars.

According to our trusted numbers cruncher Kevin Sullivan, the Globes have correctly predicted the Academy's Best Picture winner only 40 percent of the time. The two films were also part of the DIFF line-up.

Denzel Washington was awarded the Cecil B Demille Award, the Globes' lifetime achievement prize.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio paid tribute to First Nations and indigenous people during his acceptance speech at the 73rd annual Golden Globes Sunday night. Lady Gaga made her Golden Globe debut this year.

Winslet won for best supporting actress in a film for her role in Steve Jobs, and Stallone won for best supporting actor in Creed, where he reprised his role of boxer Rocky Balboa.

And Jennifer Lawrence told off a reporter in the press room who was asking her about her Joy win... while constantly staring at his phone. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who stars in Veep and has received a nomination for her performance every year since the show premiered, once again failed to bring home the Golden Globe Award after a surprising loss to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom. The misfortunes, which Leonardo DiCaprio endured in order to convincingly portray the hunter Hugh Glass did not go unnoticed as well, and now the actor finally has The Globe as the best drama actor.

Musical or Comedy (yes, the harrowing tale of survival against long odds is apparently a comedy), and star Matt Damon took home the Best Actor hardware in the same category.

"Spotlight": The film was believed the be the front-runner in a relatively wide-open best picture race.

Mozart in the Jungle is one of Amazon's best and most popular shows. In fact, in the field of television the strange victory of the night was that of Robot, the creepiest show on television which won ahead of fan favourites Game of Thrones and Empire.

 

It's safe to say that "The Revenant" walked out of the 2016 Golden Globes as the night's big winner, in terms of films.
