Golden Globes 2016 Winners: Matt Damon, Sylvester Stallone, Kate Winslet Among Big Winners

The 2016 Golden Globes featured a "bear" (Jonah Hill, in an homage to "The Revenant"), two "best friends" and category rivals who presented together (Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer) and some unexpected remarks from acid-tongued host Ricky Gervais, but the most memorable moments belonged to the stars who went home with some new hardware.

Much ado was made in Gervais' monologue about whether or not "The Martian" should be placed in the Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical category, but it did not stop Matt Damon from winning in that Best Actor division. The film also took home the top prize in its class, too.

"I've made a lot of movies that people just didn't go see," joked Damon in his acceptance speech, after reminiscing about the last time he picked up a trophy from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. "Look I was here 18 years ago [for "Good Will Hunting"], and it's literally 18 years ago since I was doing this, and with a little more context, I know how lucky this is."

While "The Martian" picked up two awards, "The Revenant" went home with three; Best Director for Alejandro G. Inarritu, Best Motion Picture - Drama and Best Actor - Drama for Leonardo DiCaprio, whose win brought the audience to their feet.

The most rousing standing ovation though, of course, came when comeback kid Sylvester Stallone won the Best Supporting Actor statue for his work in "Creed."

"Last time I was here was in 1977 and I was hit by a tumbleweed," said Stallone. "The view is so beautiful now... I'm going to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I've ever had."

Other lucky victors include "Mr. Robot," the BBC miniseries "Wolf Hall" and Pixar's "Inside Out."
