The Golden Globes represent an opportunity to see some of the best films of the previous year get rewarded, as well as watch celebrities drink heavily and give speeches – but it also serves another purpose. As one of the major award shows, the results tend to be deeply analyzed and ultimately have an effect/predict what will happen when the Academy Awards roll around. And guess what? This year is no different.

Looking at the list of nominees and victors at this year’s Golden Globes ceremony, and weighing them against their buzz going into the show, we’ve determined the five biggest winners and losers from this year’s affair. What movies and filmmakers were put on a good path, and which are in trouble? Read on to find out.

The Martian
Winner: The Martian
One could argue that Ridley Scott’s The Martian was given a bit of an advantage this evening by being categorized as a "Comedy/Musical" (which it isn’t), but the folks behind the movie certainly must feel good about their big wins tonight. Matt Damon got some much deserved love for his turn as biologist Mark Watney in the sci-fi thriller, and it’s hard not to be happy about it having a Best Picture trophy (even if the genre is a bit off). We’ll see how it winds up changing things as we get closer to the Oscars.
