Last night was the 2016 Golden Globe Award Show. There were many memorable moments: Host Ricky Gervais had comments about Caitlyn Jenner, Mel Gibson, and many others.

A movie about a guy stranded alone on another planet won an award for best comedy. The other nominees were: The Big Short (a movie about the 2008 housing collapse in the United States), Joy (a movie about a woman who became a self made millionaire), Spy (an actual comedy about a desk bound CIA agent who gets in the field for the first time), and Trainwreck (another comedy about a single woman who refuses to settle down, but meets Mr.Right). Out of the five movies nominated there are only two true comedies.
