The Golden Globes 2016 winners list was dominated by "The Revenant" and "The Martian" on Sunday night as Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon walked away victorious.
"The Revenant" won for best picture drama, DiCaprio for best actor in a drama, and Alejandro G. Iñárritu, fresh off his "Birdman" Academy Award success, took home best director, Variety reported
"The Martian" won best picture comedy or musical and Matt Damon scored best actor in a comedy or musical, despite the film being more of a science-fiction thriller, Variety noted.
"Shockingly, 'Spotlight' was left in the dark, while 'The Big Short' came up just that — short," People magazine wrote of the night's snubs
. "The erstwhile frontrunners gave up some ground to crowd-pleaser 'The Martian,' which won for best motion picture comedy and for star Matt Damon. The caveat here is that sci-fi adventure won as a comedy, a category choice so laughable that host Ricky Gervais took every opportunity to giggle at the absurdity of it."
