Leonardo DiCaprio beat Bryan Cranston, Michael Fassbender, Eddie Redmayne and Will Smith to win the "Best Actor in Drama" for his performance in "The Revenant."
Leonardo DiCaprio beat Bryan Cranston (Trumbo), Will Smith (Concussion), Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl) and Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) to win the "best actor in a drama" at the 2016 Golden Globes Awards.
The award marked DiCaprio’s 11th nomination and third Golden Globe win. He won his first trophy for Best Actor in 2005, for "The Aviator", followed by his 2014 win for "The Wolf of Wall Street ."
“I want to share this award with all the First Nations peoples represented in this film and all the indigenous communities around the world,” he said during his acceptance speech. “It is time that we recognize your history and that we protect your indigenous lands from corporate interests,” DiCaprio added.
In 1823, fur trapper Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is mauled by a bear while hunting in what will become the Dakota Territory.
His companions rob him, murder his young half-Native American son, and leave him to die, but he survives and sets out on a 200 mile trek to get revenge on the men who betrayed him and find the man (Hardy) who killed his son.
