Golden Globes Review

That’s it then. The Golden Globes are over, and what a night full of surprises! On this article we’re reviewing what happened at this years Golden Globes.

I’m afraid to say that here at UK Films we only got 6/14 right! To be far though, it was a surprising night.

Best Actor in a Drama: Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant

Leonardo DiCaprio took a surprise victory in the Best Actor in a Motion Drama. We thought that it would be Eddie Redmayne who was in The Danish Girl but it was the Oscar Winning Leonardo DiCaprio

Best Actress in a Drama: Brie Larson – The Room

Brie Larson was one of the actresses that we thought would have no chance of winning, but the Golden Globes brings surprises. We thought it would be Cate Blanchett in Carol but it was Brie Larson.

Best Actor in a Comedy: Matt Damon – The Martian

We still can’t get over why The Martian is in the Comedy section but that’s another matter. This is the first section we predicted right! Matt Damon performed superbly in the critically acclaimed film The Martian.

Best Actress in a Comedy: Jennifer Lawrence – Joy

Another one we got right. Jennifer Lawrence thouroly deserved this award for her performance in David O Russell’s new film, Joy. It’s her second Golden Globe in this category and we won’t be surprised if she wins an Oscar.

Best Film (Drama): The Revenant

It’s a double win for The Revenant, with their lead actor Leonardo DiCaprio winning Best Actor in a Drama. We thought it would be Mad Max but in the end The Revenant surprised us all.

Best Film (Comedy): The Martian

If The Martian was in the Drama section, who knows, a film like Joy could of won this category and would the Martian beat The Revenant? It’s a deserved win for The Martian but we still can’t get over that it’s in the Comedy section.

Best Supporting Actor: Sylvester Stallone – Creed

We thought it would be Mark Rylance in Steven’s Spielberg’s latest film Bridge of Spies, we never thought it would be Sylvester Stallone but he did perform well in Creed, and to be fair, all the nominees in this category performed well.

Best Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet – Steve Jobs

This is one we did predict right. Kate Winslet deserved win. It’s her second win in this category, also winning the Best Actress once before.

Best Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu – The Revenant

Iñárritu did a great job at directing the box office film The Revenant. He is a great director and I’m sure that he will win another award soon.

Best Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin – Steve Jobs

It may have not been the success he would have wanted, but Sorkin did a wonderful job.

Best Original Score: Ennio Morricone – The Hateful Eight

Morricone did a brilliant job at composing a fantastic score throughout the movie. When I saw the movie each piece matched each scene perfectly.

Best Original Song: Writing’s On The Wall – Sam Smith – Spectre

I’m quite surprised by this because, as much as I like Sam Smith, when I heard Writing’s On The Wall, I didn’t think of it as a Bond tune. You’ve had Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, those big Bond tunes.

Best Animated Movie: Inside Out

Inside Out is a great film, not just for the younger ones too. It’s one of very few animated films that succeeds on most levels.

Best Foreign Language Film: Son and Saul

Though I have not seen Son and Saul, my friends say it was a great movie. It thouroly deserved to win this category.

So we may of only got about 50% right, but it was a great night to be a film fan. See you at the 21st Critic’s Choice Awards on the 17th January!
