Golden Globe, Golden Performance


Sunday, January 10, 2016 was the 73rd annual Golden Globes ceremony; the night was filled with newcomers and old winners. The Hollywood Foreign Press awards Golden Globes to the best films, t.v. shows, actors, actresses, directors, producers and more. The biggest award of the night, Best Motion Picture – Drama was awarded to The Revenant, starring the man of the hour, Leonardo DiCaprio. This winning was no surprise as most reviewers expected the winner of the award would come down to “The Revenant” or “Room.” The winner of Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, seemed to come down between “The Martian,” “Joy,” and “The Big Short.” Ultimately “The Martian” starring Matt Damon was awarded the honor of this award.

Leonardo DiCaprio won for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for his role in The Revenant. Matt Damon took the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for his out of this world performance in “The Martian”.

Although these leading actors stole the biggest awards of the night, the ladies dominated the night as well, taking some of the largest awards for themselves. Newcomer to The Globes, Brie Larson unsurprisingly was awarded the globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for her breakout role in “Room.” Many thought she won this award due to her true talent shining while acting alongside a child. Jennifer Lawrence returning to the Golden Globes for her fourth nomination fought alongside friend and Golden Globe newcomer Amy Schumer. Ultimately Jennifer Lawrence was honored with her third Golden Globe for her spectacular performance in “Joy.” Kate Winslet won her fourth Golden Globe for her performance in “Steve Jobs.” Lady Gaga won a Globe for her role in “American Horror Story: Hotel.” This was not only her first win but her first acting job as well.

This is only a fraction of the big winners who took a Golden Globe home with them that night. Many speculate the Golden Globes hint at who will be nominated for Oscars and who will win at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Now we wait and see who will be winning the Oscars when the show premieres. Let’s see who will win an actor’s biggest honor, the golden statue, next month.
