The Revenant swept all the major awards at the 73rd annual Golden Globes on Sunday. Leonardo DiCaprio, who starred in the historical drama, took home Best Actor while Alejandro González Iñárritu was awarded the gong for Best Director, at the ceremony held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. The Revenant took the biggest award of the night as it was named the Best Picture Drama.

Lesbian drama 'Carol' and Wall Street comedy 'The Big Short', which had led nominations going into Sunday's ceremony, came home empty-handed, as did admired Catholic Church sex abuse probe 'Spotlight'.

When DiCaprio, 41, was named Best Actor, he was visibly emotional as he took the stage. 'What an incredible honor,' he began. 'Wow, that meant a lot.’ 'To the other fantastic performances in this category, you guys were incredible,' he added graciously.

'Two years ago we were immersed in nature [during filming]. This movie was about trust and no one was more deserving of our trust than our director. The depths to which he and the entire crew went to make this film were incredible.'

The Golden Globe Award is an American accolade bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) recognizing excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign.

In 1943, a group of writers came together to form the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and created a generously distributed award called the Golden Globe Award. They now play a significant role in film marketing. The 1st Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best achievements in 1943 filmmaking, were held in January 1944, at the 20th Century-Fox studios. Subsequent ceremonies were held at various venues throughout the next decade, including the Beverly Hills Hotel, and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
