It’s the award we’ve been waiting waiting for all night at the 2016 Golden Globes: Best Movie — Drama! ‘The Revenant,’ the intense wilderness thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio, took home the coveted award, beating out so many incredible other films.
It was a year with incredible contenders for the 2016 Golden Globes: Mad Max: Fury Road, Room, Spotlight, Carol, and The Revenant. But only one film could win — and it was quite a breathtaking one. The Revenant, the nerve-wracking thriller set in the wilderness of the 1820s, brought home two awards for Leonardo DiCaprio. What a wonderful end to a fantastic night!
The Golden Globes brought out the big guns to announce the last award of the evening, Best Motion Picture: Drama. Harrison Ford came out on stage to much applause to announce that The Revenant has one arguably the biggest award of the night — saving the best for last! Director Alejandro Iñárritu accepted the award along with the cast, including star Leonardo. This was far from the first win for the powerhouse film during the awards ceremony.
To the delight of the audience, Leo won Best Actor, Drama for his starring role as Hugh Glass, a fur trader in a brutal battle with a grizzly bear. With some shouting “Oscar” (he’s never won it!) as he took to the stage, Leo emotionally accepted the award and gave praise to Alejandro, as well as the crew of the movie for his success.
Additionally, Alejandro won Best Director for his incredible work on The Revenant. This was clearly a deserving film to win Best Picture, wasn’t it? However, we would have been happy if any of the films won! There were so many fantastic films nominated this year; it was hard to choose a favorite.
