Golden Globes 2016: An excellent night for MexicoBy Valeria Bigurra Peñavera
Yesterday the 73rd annual Golden Globes 2016 were held, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, and certainly was a night in which Mexico gave a lot to talk about.
Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu won the award for Best Director for the film The Revenant, a film that beat Carol, Mad Max: Fury Road, Room and Spotlight; and also gave Leonardo Dicaprio the prize for best actor. Ergo, The Revenant was the overall winner of the night, and triumphantly taking home the prize for Best Picture.
Actor Gael Garcia also won the award for Best Actor in TV series by Mozart in the Jungle, production that also won the award for Best TV Series.
This is the first Golden Globe that Gael Garcia wins, a native of Guadalajara, Mexico, and who began his career many years ago.
