2016 Golden Globe Awards Live Blog: Complete List of Winners

2016 Golden Globe Awards Live Blog: Complete List of Winners

It's the first big awards show of 2016, the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. Once again hosted by Ricky Gervais (who is sure to insult anyone and everyone), the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will hand out awards in 25 categories for both film and television.

For film, it could be a preview of what's to come at the Oscars (last year, all four acting Oscar winners also won at the Golden Globes). For television, the HFPA always loves honoring cool, new shows, which is why there are so many unusual first-time nominees like Outlander, Mr. Robot and Mozart in the Jungle.

I'll update throughout the evening with my thoughts on the jokes, speeches and, of course, the winners.

Ricky Gervais : The host opens with his standard monologue insulting the stars. He starts with jokes about Sean Penn and the fact that NBC, the network hosting the awards, received zero nominations. He pulls no punches, saying Roman Polanski called Spotlight, about the Catholic church's sexual abuse scandal, the best date movie of the year. He also has some great jokes about pay inequity between male and female actors, claiming he's getting paid the same amount as previous hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey combined.

Film Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet, Steve Jobs

This is her fourth win out of 11 nominations. She seems genuinely surprised and gushes over the other women in her category and co-star Michael Fassbender. She says she'd happily end her life having been allowed to read Aaron Sorkin's words, which see,ms a bit extreme.

TV Supporting Actress: Maura Tierney, The Affair

Wow, this is odd. Last year The Affair won for Best Drama and Lead Actress, but this year Tierney is the show's only nominee. The HFPA is definitely a weird group.

TV Comedy Lead Actress: Rachel Bloom, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

The Golden Globes REALLY love the CW. This is the second year in a row the network won this award, following Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez. She gushes over CW president Mark Pedowitz, which could go a long way in helping the lowest-rated show on network TV get renewed for season 2. She hilariously talks as fast as she can to get everyone in.

TV Comedy: Mozart in the Jungle

I'm just gonna assume you've never heard of this show from Amazon, cuz no one has. But the Globes once again prove that they LOVE anything new that no one else has given an award to. It's about the New York symphony.

TV Movie/Limited Series: Wolf Hall

Of course the fancy British series beats American ones like Fargo, American Crime and American Horror Story. After all, it's the Hollywood FOREIGN Press Association.

TV Movie/Limited Series Lead Actor: Oscar Isaac, Show Me a Hero

Kudos to Poe from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Clearly he's having a great month.

TV Supporting Actor: Christian Slater, Mr. Robot

Hell yeah, finally a winner I can get behind. This USA show is fantastic and it's great to see Slater finally have a good TV show after so many failures.

Film Score: The Hateful Eight

The score is by Ennio Morricone, who gets a ton of nominations. Director Quentin Tarantino accepts and goes crazy.

TV Drama Lead Actor: Jon Hamm, Mad Men

He gets a second Golden Globe for the final season. The upcoming SAG Awards will be his last time being nominated for playing Don Draper.

Film Comedy Actor: Matt Damon, The Martian

I know people mock this film competing as a Comedy, but Damon was pretty funny throughout. Surprisingly, this is actually his first acting win at any major awards show. Sure, he won for writing Good Will Hunting, but he's never won for acting..

Film Animated Feature: Inside Out

This is the 10th year the award has been given out and the seventh time Pixar has won it. In fact, there's only been one year where Pixar had a nominated film that didn't win: Cars 2.
