If you’re a true cinephile, then you’re aware that it’s award season. The 73rd Annual Golden Globes aired on Sunday with favorite slick mouth comedian Ricky Gervais hosting for the fourth time.
It is a night for film and television. Though mostly predictable, there’s always a surprise or two for the viewers such as that of pop star turned actress Lady Gaga taking home her first globe for her performance in the popular “American Horror Story.”
Some notable winners of the night also include:
Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Actor in a drama – The Revenant
Brie Larson for Best Actress in a drama – Room
Sylvester Stallone for Best Supporting Actor in a drama – Creed
Kate Winslet for Best Supporting Actress in a drama – Steve Jobs
“The Revenant” wins Best Drama Motion Picture, and Best Director for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, who won last year for “Birdman.”
“The Martian” wins Best Musical or Comedy. (No, this is not a joke)
Matt Damon takes home Best Actor in a musical or comedy for “The Martian” while Jennifer Lawrence takes Best Actress in a musical or comedy for “Joy.”
And Denzel Washington receives the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award for his acting achievements.

And then there’s the Oscar Nominations!
The hashtag OscarsSoWhite became popular after nominations for the 88th Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning with “The Revenant” leading the way with 12.
At least we have a black host, right? Comedian Chris Rock will surely mention the lack of color in nominations on Sunday, Feb. 28. Where’s Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan for “Creed”?
The expected are nominated: Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sylvester Stallone, Brie Larson, Jennifer Lawrence, Eddie Redmayne, “The Revenant,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Room”…

Undoubtedly, 2015 was a decent year for film. Let’s hope we can say the same for 2016.
