The Revenant, The Martian and Mr. Robot among the big winners at the Golden Globes

It was a night that would prove difficult to predict. For every Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) or Matt Damon (The Martian) there was a Maura Tierney (The Affair), Lady Gaga (American Horror Story: Hotel) or a Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) – a winner who was far from the odds on favourite.

It made it an interesting night though, with the surprises shining light on shows and films that haven’t otherwise been in the limelight – like the Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle, which won both awards it was nominated for (Best TV Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor – Musical or Comedy). Best TV Series Drama, meanwhile, went to Mr. Robot, while Best Films were awarded to The Revenant and The Martian for Drama and Musical/Comedy, respectively. Even Director Ridley Scott seemed perplexed by the category for the latter, when he accepted the award.

Ricky Gervais returned as host for the fourth time, promising up front to try and be a bit nicer this year. He certainly tried, but thankfully was imperfect in his delivery (something that may sum up his hosting duties in general – we get it, you hate doing this…). One memorable moment came when he asked Mel Gibson “…what the fuck does Sugar Tits mean?”. His reply, which was along the lines of “I didn’t say that”, was rather perplexing… but I digress…

F-bombs came regularly; It had to be one of the most heavily censored Awards in history – at least in the US (thankfully FOX8 delivered it without a delay). Amy Schumer ensured the C-bomb made its way in there, and there were more than a few “shits”. Excellent to see no one holding back.

Other highlights of the night included a passionate speech from Leonardo DiCaprio, dedicating his award to Indigenous populations around the world, Matt Damon just being Matt Damon and Aziz Ansari‘s own incorrect prediction of his own category:

Meanwhile, the best presenters of the day were a toss up between Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell – as they berated the loud TV nominees at the back of the room – and Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer, who should be in the running to host next year. Keepin’ it classy. You can enjoy more of our recaps from our live blog of the awards…
