‘The Revenant’ takes home top prizes at the Golden Globes

“The Revenant,” a story of survival set among frontiersmen in the 1820s, led the winners at the 73rd annual Golden Globes on Sunday night.

Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu and star Leonardo DiCaprio both took home prizes for “The Revenant.” Iñárritu won the Golden Globe among a field of strong nominees that included Todd Haynes for “Carol,” Tom McCarthy for “Spotlight,” George Miller for “Mad Max: Fury Road” and Ridley Scott for “The Martian.”

DiCaprio, the recipient of two previous Golden Globes, won Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama for his portrayal of a fur trader who must fight to survive after he is mauled by a bear and betrayed by his companions. In his acceptance speech, DiCaprio called for recognition of indigenous communities around the world. “It is time we recognize your history,” he said.

A number of surprises marked the evening in both the film and television categories. “The Martian,” whose nomination in the Best Motion Picture — Comedy drew some criticism when it was announced, won that award.

“Mozart in the Jungle,” Amazon’s comedy about the inner workings of a New York symphony, garnered two awards as the best comedy TV series and for lead actor Gael García Bernal. When it debuted in February, critics pointed to the show’s sharp comedic moments and strong performances while noting a sometimes-muddy storyline.

Brie Larson, who starred in “Room” as a woman raising a child in captivity, took home the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture for Drama among a group of nominees that included “Carol” co-stars Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett. “Carol,” which had received the most nominations of any movie with five nods, did not take home any awards.

“Wolf Hall,” PBS’ six-part miniseries on the Tudors, took home the Golden Globe for Best TV Movie or Limited Series.
