Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson win big at Golden Globes

Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson took home the Best Actor and Best Actress awards at last night's (10.01.16) Golden Globes.

The 41-year-old star and the 'Room' actress were honoured with the top prizes at the ceremony, whilst 'The Revenant' took home the Best Picture (Drama) award.

Accepting the gong, Brie said: "This movie means so much to me and so I need to start at the beginning with Emma Donoghue, who wrote the novel that inspired all of this."

In his speech, Leonardo spoke of his environmental concerns for the planet, urging people to "protect the planet for future generations".

He shared: "I want to share this award with all the First Nations peoples represented in this film and all the indigenous communities around the world.

"It is time that we recognize your history and that we protect your indigenous lands and corporate interests. It is time that we protected this planet for future generations."

'The Martian' was also a big winner at the ceremony, hosted by Ricky Gervais, picking up the gong for Best Picture (Musical or Comedy) award, whilst the film's star Matt Damon took home the Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) gong.

Other notable winners included Kate Winslet, who secured the fourth Golden Globe of her career, for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.

Collecting the award for her portrayal of Joanna Hoffman in the 'Steve Jobs' biopic, she spoke of ''girl power" in Hollywood, telling the audience: "I really am so shocked right now. So shocked! I'm never ever going to get used to it. I'm standing here, thinking really this is not happening. I honestly, truthfully did not expect this at all.

"A lot of us out there still in the game. I've been doing this for 23 years, Cate Blanchett probably longer. There's a real sense of girl power this year."
