On January 10, the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards took place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. The awards were held to honor the best in film and American television. At the event, there were many popular faces seen at the Golden Globe Awards from Amy Schumer to Leonardo Dicaprio. Every year, we get excited to see how our favorite nominated movies and television shows rank and who will take home a Golden Globe for all their hard work and dedication. The anticipated results are as follows.

For Best Motion Picture – Drama, The Revenant took home the Golden Globe. The Revenant is a biographical Western adventure film inspired by true experiences. The movie is a powerful story where the lead survives in the wilderness against all odds. Featured in the film are Leonardo Dicaprio, Tom Hardy and Domhnall Gleeson.

For Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, The Martian took home the Golden Globe. The Martian is a movie based on Andy Weir’s 2011 science fiction novel. It features an astronaut who is presumed dead and abandoned on Mars. The story is about his survival and ultimate rescue. Featured in the film are Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain and Kristen Wiig.  

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama: Brie Larson, Room. Unfortunately, I have not had the chance to see Room, but it is based off the book written by Emma Donoghue. The story is about a mother and son who are released from an enclosed space they had been held captive in for years.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama: Leonardo Dicaprio, The Revenant. After Dicaprio ate a chunk of raw buffalo and slept naked in a horse's body cavity, this Golden Globe was very much deserved.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy: Jennifer Lawrence, Joy. You can’t have the Golden Globes without Jennifer Lawrence taking an award home. She has nearly won a Golden Globe for Best Actress/ Actress in a Supporting Role for the past three years.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy: Matt Damon, The Martian. Although this movie may be in a strange category, the award was much deserved. I though Damon incorporated just the right amount of humor and determination into the highly-praised film, The Martian.

These are the Golden Globe results for the best performances by actors/actresses and best motion pictures of the year. There were many other awards for actors/ actresses in a supporting role, film directors, original songs and television. The results are below.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture: Kate Winslet, Steve Jobs.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture: Sylvester Stallone, Creed.

Best Director - Motion Picture: Alejandro Iñárritu, The Revenant.

Best Screenplay - Motion Picture: Aaron Sorkin, Steve Jobs.

Best Motion Picture – Animated: Inside Out. This was personally one of my favorite movies of the year. Put being a Disney fanatic aside, this was a great movie for all to watch regardless of your age. Hopefully, it will bring a heartwarming tear to your eye.

Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language: Hungary, Son of Saul.

Best Original Score - Motion Picture: Ennio Morricone, The Hateful Eight.

Best Original Song - Motion Picture: Writing’s On the Wall, Spectre. This song is sung by Sam Smith. If you are a Sam Smith fan, this song will definitely give you chills with his impressive vocal range and piercing tone.

Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television: Wolf Hall

The final and most moving award of the Golden Globes was the Cecil B. DeMille Award. The Cecil B. DeMille Award is an honorary award given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.” The award has previously been received by Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Steven Spielberg, Robert DeNiro and many more talented individuals. This year, the award was bestowed upon Denzel Washington. Denzel Washington has been acting since 1974 and brought forth many emotions from viewers in his multitude of performing roles.  

The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards were a success and everyone seemed overwhelmed with joy and gratitude. The Golden Globes may be over, but our attention can now turn to the 88th Annual Academy Awards where Oscars will be handed out to many deserving and talented individuals. The Academy Awards will take place on February 28, 2016 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. They will begin at 8:30 p.m. Will Leonardo DiCaprio take home an Oscar? We can only hope.
