by David González
- Europe makes it onto the list of winners with Room, Steve Jobs, Son of Saul, Spectre and Ennio Morricone
While Todd Haynes’ masterful melodrama Carol [+see also:

The US film conquered the awards ceremony, held last night in Los Angeles by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Iñárritu’s film took home the Golden Globes for Best Drama, Best Director and Best Actor - Drama (for Leonardo DiCaprio’s stunning turn).
In order to find European films in the list of winners, we have to look further down. Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs [+see also:
film profile], another UK-US co-production, celebrated a win for Kate Winslet in the Best Supporting Actress category and Aaron Sorkin for Best Screenplay. Lenny Abrahamson’s acclaimed, Toronto-awarded Room [+see also:
film profile], an Irish-Canadian co-production, won Best Actress - Drama for Brie Larson.
In the Best Foreign-language Film category, though, it was certainly a European affair. Hungarian filmmaker László Nemes’ ferocious, overwhelming Son of Saul [+see also:

Lastly, the music categories were dominated by Sam Mendes’ Spectre [+see also:
