There were upsets galore at the 2016 Golden Globes, with Rachel Bloom from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend seemingly coming out of nowhere to snag the best actress in a comedy series award in a category that included Jamie Lee Curtis, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Gina Rodriguez, and Lily Tomlin. Bloom’s award was one of the first of the evening and set up a night of surprises that included Mozart in the Jungle earning the best comedy series award, Oscar Isaac winning for Show Me a Hero, and Lady Gaga winning the best actress in a limited series over Kirsten Dunst, Felicity Huffman, Queen Latifah, and Sarah Hay.

Two films that aren’t comedies – The Martian and Joy – won in comedy movie categories, and Aaron Sorkin’s win for the Steve Jobs screenplay was a shocker. Less shocking was The Revenant‘s win in three categories: Best Motion Picture Drama, Best Director, and Best Actor, Drama. Leonardo DiCaprio’s odds of winning an Oscar just improved and after delivering a thank you speech recalling the amount of work that went into The Revenant and thanking his director and co-stars (in particular Tom Hardy), DiCaprio finished up by recognizing the First Nations people represented in the film. “It is time that we recognize your history and that we protect your indigenous lands from corporate interests and people that are out there to exploit them. It is time that we heard your voice and protected this planet for future generations.”

Host Ricky Gervais was missing for a good deal of the broadcast, but did get in some pretty wicked zingers in his limited time on stage. Gervais kicked off the Golden Globes shushing the star-studded crowd, calling them disgusting, pill-popping sexual deviants. His monologue also included calling out Caitlin Jenner’s driving, Jeffrey Tambor’s large testicles, NBC’s lack of nominations, and Jennifer Lawrence’s campaign for equal pay for women. Gervais pointed out that the Globes really don’t mean a thing and that no one but the winners actually care about these awards. Not shying away from the biting the hand that feeds him, Gervais said the Globes are decided upon by nice old confused journalists who like to meet celebrities so that they can take selfies with them.
