The Revenant won a bunch of Golden Globes, raising Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar hopes

The Revenant

Another Golden Globes, another opportunity for the world to gasp in horror as Ricky Gervais says mildly offensive things that are specifically designed to make people gasp in horror and get them talking about the Golden Globes. Did you clutch your pearls when he implied that Donald Trump is racist? Did your monocle fall out when he made a joke about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie adopting a lot of kids? Did you throw your hand to your brow and faint when he had the guts to make fun of Mel Gibson? (For the record, the bleeped-out thing he said was apparently “What the fuck does sugar tits even mean?” which is a reference to a thing everyone definitely remembers.)


The Golden Globes wasn’t all about Ricky Gervais’ unique brand of clever, edgy, and insultingly lazy humor, though, it was also about awards. The laugh-a-minute gags of Ridley Scott’s The Martian won for Best Comedy and star Matt Damon won Best Actor In A Comedy, Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress In A Comedy for Joy, and Mozart In The Jungle won for Best TV Comedy. In the drama world, Mr. Robot won for Best TV series, the recognition-starved Leonardo DiCaprio won for Best Actor, Brie Larson won for Best Actress, and The Revenant won Best Picture and Best Director.
