WEB DESK: The Golden Globes 2016 Award ceremony was held Sunday night. It was a night of surprises, laughter and barbed comments for Hollywood celebrities.
The awards were handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at a glitzy Beverly Hills dinner packed with A-list celebrities.
Revenge drama “The Revenant” and space adventure “The Martian” won the top movie prizes.
In a closely-contested men’s field, Leonardo DiCaprio won for his lead role as a fur trapper seeking retribution in “The Revenant” while Matt Damon’s astronaut stranded on Mars in “The Martian” won the comedy acting award.
Jennifer Lawrence won best comedy movie actress for her portrayal of the Miracle Mop inventor in “Joy,” while Brie Larson, 26, beat veteran Cate Blanchett to take home her first major award for playing a young woman who is abducted and locked up for years in the movie drama “Room.”
Lesbian drama “Carol” and Wall Street comedy “The Big Short,” which had led nominations going into Sunday’s ceremony, came home empty handed, as did admired Catholic Church sex abuse probe “Spotlight.”
Other popular winners includes Sylvester Stallone, 69, who received a standing ovation as best supporting film actor for reprising his iconic role as boxer Rocky Balboa in “Creed,” beating presumed frontrunner Mark Rylance for “Bridge of Spies.”
