DiCaprio won for The Revenant on Sunday, his third Golden Globe win in 10 nominations (previous wins came for Wolf of Wall Street and The Aviator). DiCaprio beat out Bryan Cranston (Trumbo), Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl) and Will Smith (Concussion).
DiCaprio took the stage to a loud and long ovation.
"What an incredible honor, wow that meant a lot. ... this film was about survival, it was about adaptation, it was about the triumph of the human spirit, but more than anything it was about trust. And there's no one more deserving of that trust than our director Alejandro Iñárritu — thank you," he said.
