Who Scored Big in 2016 Golden Globes?

So who impressed the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at the glitzy and glamorous at the 73rd annual Golden Globes ceremony in America on Sunday Night?

Hosted by straight-talking comedian and actor Ricky Gervais, who is no stranger to making controversial gags, the celebration saw the crème de la crème of film and television royalty gather to mark the achievements made in the industry during the last year.

Unsurprisingly Jennifer Lawrence, who has already carved a well deserved name out for herself in the blockbuster world, with films such as The Hunger Games and X-Men: Days of Future Past under her belt, was awarded Best Actress in a Motion Picture: Comedy for Joy, although I did feel a bit sorry for Melissa McCarthy on missing out as her performance in Spy was hilarious.

It was also predictable that acting heavyweight Sylvester Stallone clinched  Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Creed, in which he reprises his iconic role of wrestling legend Rocky.

What was a big dose of shock was that The Martian won Best Motion Picture: Comedy given that it’s erm more of a sci-fi drama. Sure it has some witty one liners sprinkled in the script but it’s about an astronaut stranded on Mars! Game of Thrones getting beaten by crime drama Mr Robot for Best TV Series: Drama was also a shock, just because Game of Thrones is so incredibly awesome, but I haven’t seen Mr Robot so can’t judge plus I’m extremely biased when it comes to GoT.

Tears were shed by singer Lady Gaga when she was bestowed with the Best Actress in a TV Movie or Limited-Series accolade for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel, whilst Leonardo Dicaprio may not be able to celebrate the sort point of not having won an Oscar yet but he may now be tipped to secure the overdue award after bagging himself Best Actor in a Motion Picture: Drama for The Revenant (out on Friday)

Social media controversy erupted over Sam Smith’s Writings on the Wall winning the Best Original Song: Motion Picture for
 Spectre sparking Tweets like the ones below.
