Last night, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the winners of this year's Golden Globe Awards, for both television and film, in a ceremony hosted by that obnoxious gobshite Ricky Gervais for the fourth time.
Here is the full list of film winners.

This is the first of the major awards to be handed out, so predictably a lot of people are foaming at the mouth that DiCaprio's finally gonna win his Oscar. Still a lot to come, so don't be too premature, There is a lot of love for The Revenant and bizarrely The Martian (although you'll never be able to convince me that it deserved to go into that category). Stallone's reaction to winning is particularly special; he genuinely looked surprised. Happy to see Kate Winslet and Inside Out winning; I have to say I'm a little surprised that 'Writing's On The Wall' won Best Song as it's quite an insipidly bland one but there's no accounting for taste.
Right, tomorrow sees the Directors' Guild Award nominations (which will give me the final piece of the puzzle needed to complete my Oscar nomination predictions- these will go up on Wednesday, after the Razzie nominations).
