Highlights, winners and heartwarming moments from the 2016 Golden Globes

By Ava Baccari

“I’ve changed,” pleaded host Ricky Gervais, who returned to the stage at the Beverly Hilton for the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards in one of the most highly anticipated comebacks in the award show’s history.

SCROLL DOWN FOR FULL LIST OF WINNERS

And the British comic, 54, who hosted the glitzy award show from 2010 to 2012, came out swinging with his skewering opening monologue, “Relax, I’m going to try to be nice,” he started, before segueing into biting jokes that covered the broad scope of news stories that came out of Hollywood this past year, from the movie remakes with all-female lead casts to Jennifer Lawrence’s speaking out against the gender pay gap in Hollywood. And with his deadpan delivery, Ricky’s opening skit had A-listers like Julianne Moore and Melissa McCarthy in stitches.

TAP IMAGE FOR MEMORABLE MOMENTS FROM THE SHOW

Sipping on a pint between jokes, Ricky, who was dapperly dressed in Ted Baker, then introduced the first presenters of the night, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, who was dressed as the now-infamous bear in director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s film, The Revenant, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The 21 Jump Street duo presented the first award of the evening, Best Supporting Actress in a motion picture, to Kate Winslet. She started the parade of the night's big winners, including Jennifer Lawrence for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy for Joy, Brie Larson for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama, for The Room, and Leonardo DiCaprio, who picked up his third career Best Actor award for The Revenant.

Dressed in royal blue Ralph Lauren, a visibly surprised Kate claimed the coveted award for her supporting role in director Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic. “I am extremely surprised and overwhelmed,” she began, before taking a moment to compose herself. In her moving speech, she praised her co-star and “legend” Michael Fassbender and “my wonderful husband Ned, my everything.”

A notable win early on in the night went to Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, who picked up the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama, for the show’s the final season. The Golden Globe was Jon’s second – he first claimed the honour in 2008, when the AMC series kicked off ­– and he’s been nominated every year since. Seemingly shocked by the win, Jon thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association “for supporting our show all the way to the end.”

Amy Adams later presented the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical to Matt Damon, who was nominated alongside Christian Bale and Steve Carell (The Big Short) and Al Pacino (Danny Collins). Humbled by the win, Matt couldn't help but thank his kids watching at home. “Get read to go to bed now!” he said, before thanking, his wife, Lucy, “for everything.” Picking up the award for The Martian, Matt told the audience that knew how “lucky” he was for the honour. “It’s been 18 years since I’ve been up here,” he said, smiling. “I made a lot of movies that people didn't go see!”
