'The Revenant', 'The Martian' Named Top Films at Golden Globes As Host Gervais Gets 'Crass'
But the most awkward moment of the night came when Gervais and Gibson stood onstage for several minutes of uncomfortable ribbing, during which Gibson said that seeing Gervais host the show every three years "reminds me to get a colonoscopy." Gervais countered by asking Gibson "What the f--- does sugar t--s even mean?", a reference to an insult Gibson directed at a female police officer during his now-infamous arrest for drunken driving in 2006.
As the show moved on, Jamie Foxx poked fun at Steve Harvey by imitating the “Family Feud” host's viral gaffe at last month's Miss Universe pageant. Foxx pretended the Best Original Score winner was “Straight of out Compton" before furiously showing the cue card and admitting the winner was in fact “The Hateful Eight.”
Sylvester Stallone got a standing ovation when he was awarded Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for “Creed”, in which he played the character that earned him his only other Golden Globe nomination 39 years earlier.
"I want to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I ever had," said Stallone.
Jennifer Lawrence won her third Golden Globe for a David O. Russell-directed film, grabbing the Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy award for “Joy.” Brie Larson won Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for “Room”, concluding her acceptance speech by saying "I'm sorry for anyone I forgot. I'll write you a thank-you card."
Though "Steve Jobs" failed to win over many critics or moviegoers, Danny Boyle's drama about the Apple co-founder earned best screenplay for Aaron Sorkin and best supporting actress for Kate Winslet. Winning her fourth Globe in 11 nominations, Winslet triumphed over Alicia Vikander, who missed out on both supporting actress for her role in "Ex Machina" and best drama actress for her turn in "The Danish Girl."
On the TV side, Taraji P. Henson of Fox's "Empire" was awarded Best Television Series Actress in a Drama. Jon Hamm took home the award for Best Television Series Actor in a Drama for AMC's “Mad Men.” Meanwhile, Best Drama Series went to USA Network's "Mr. Robot", and Best Comedy Series went to Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle.”
Other winners of the night included “Inside Out”, which won Best Animated Motion Picture, and Lady Gaga, who won Best Actress in a TV Movie or Miniseries for FX's “American Horror Story: Hotel.”
