Leonardo DiCaprio and his movie ‘The Revenant’ win big at 2016 Golden Globes
Leonardo DiCaprio took home the Golden Globe award Sunday for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama, for his turn in The Revenant, while Brie Larson won the Golden Globe award for best actress in a drama for her role in Room.
The actor beat out competition from Bryan Cranston (Trumbo), Will Smith (Concussion), Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl) and Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs).
“I want to share this award with all the First Nations peoples represented in this film and all the indigenous communities around the world,” he said during his acceptance speech, in which he gave a nod to director Alejandro González Iñárritu, who won Best Director for his turn. “It is time that we recognize your history and that we protect your indigenous lands from corporate interests,” DiCaprio continued.
This is DiCaprio’s eleventh nomination and third win. He first earned a trophy for Best Actor for The Aviator in 2005, followed by The Wolf of Wall Street in 2014.
Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for Joy. Matt Damon won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for The Martian; Brie Larson won Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama, for Room; The Martian won Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy; and The Revenant won Best Motion Picture, Drama.
Kate Winslet won the award for best supporting actress in a dramatic film for her role in Steve Jobs. Winslet saluted the previous year as having been a seminal year for the portrayal of women in film, before diving into thanks for her colleagues and collaborators. Calling Michael Fassbender “a legend,” she described how everyone on the film would watch his performance as the Apple co-founder.
Mr. Robot won a Golden Globe for Best TV Series, Drama. The show, written and directed by Sam Esmail, gained a loyal fanbase this year for its unnerving and cringe-free depiction of hacking. Esmail accepted the award graciously and goofily, saying, “I gotta thank the Hollywood Foreign Press. I mean, they gave the best drama series award to a show called Mr. Robot. And that took a lot of courage, so thank you.”
Mr. Robot was up against almost untouchably popular shows like Game of Thrones and Empire for the award, which makes tonight’s win all that much more of a coup for the series, still only one season deep.
Pixar’s movie Inside Out won the Best Motion Picture, Animated. Directed by Pete Docter, the film follows the different emotions inside a young girl’s mind, and was seen as a creative return to form for the studio, which has been dabbling a little too much in ho-hum sequels and tepid originals over the past few years. Inside Out was actually nominated against Dinosaur, as well as The Peanuts Movie, Shaun the Sheep and Anomalisa.
