2016 Golden Globe Winners: ‘The Revenant’ Wins Big with Best Picture, Director, Actor

     January 10, 2016

the-revenant-leonardo-dicaprio-sliceThe 2016 Golden Globe Awards were held tonight, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was very fond of The Revenant. The film took home Best Picture – Drama, Best Director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu, and Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio, putting a halt to Spotlight‘s awards momentum a tad, which was entirely shut out. The awards themselves aren’t exactly a meaningful pit stop on the road to the Oscars—the Academy has already closed voting for Oscar nominations—it does give folks a chance to see how potential winners may handle their speeches. The Revenant isn’t a huge threat to winning Best Picture (Spotlight is still tops in that department, with The Big Short a potential Dark Horse), but DiCaprio surely seems well on his way to winning his first Oscar.

Elsewhere, the hilarious romp The Martian won Best Picture – Comedy and Best Actor in a Comedy for Matt Damon, while the Best Actress honors went to Brie Larson (another Oscar favorite) for Room and Jennifer Lawrence for Joy. And Steve Jobs, which began this season as a potential heavyweight but all but disappeared after its disastrous box office, picked up two trophies in the Best Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin) and Best Supporting Actress (Kate Winslet) categories.

On the TV side of things, the HFPA continued their trend of being distracted by new and shiny shows over well-established series, awarding the addictive USA series Mr. Robot Best Drama Series, Best Actor (Rami Malek), and Best Supporting Actor (Christian Slater), while the Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle surprisingly took home Best Comedy and Best Actor in a Comedy (Gael Garcia Bernal). The vets weren’t entirely left out, though, as Jon Hamm picked up one last Mad Men trophy and Empire‘s Taraji P. Henson enthusiastically took home Best Actress in a Drama.
