"The Martian," "The Revenant," "Mr. Robot" and "Mozart in the Jungle" walked away with the top film and television honors Sunday during the 2016 Golden Globes.
Presented by the 93-member Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the often-quirky Golden Globes don't have the prestige of the Academy Awards, nor do they serve as a good indication of who might win an Oscar. However, that doesn't stop industry pundits from trying to read the tea leaves.
The Western epic "The Revenant" rode away with best drama, best actor for Leonardo DiCaprio and Best Director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu for Best Director, leaving early favorite "Spotlight" out in the cold. "The Martian," whose nomination as best picture, comedy or musical, won that category, with Matt Damon picking up a best actor trophy for his performance in the sci-fi film.
Best actress honors went to Brie Larson for "Room" and Jennifer Lawrence for "Joy." Sylvester Stallone, who's created Oscar buzz for his role in "Creed," won for best supporting actor.
In the television division, USA's "Mr. Robot" earned best drama and best supporting actor for Christian Slater, mirrored by "Mozart in the Jungle," with best comedy and best actor for Gael García Bernal. Lady Gaga won for best actress in a miniseries or TV movie for "American Horror Story: Hotel," while Oscar Isaac snagged best actor honors for "Show Me a Hero."
