Matt Damon won Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy/Musical for his role in The Martian at the 2016 Golden Globes.

In Ridley Scott's The Martian, Damon plays Mark Watney, an astronaut left behind on Mars by his crew. Damon trumped Christian Bale and Steve Carell for The Big Short, Al Pacino for Danny Collins and Mark Ruffalo for Infinitely Polar Bear. This is Damon's second Globe and first for a performance (he shared the Best Screenplay award with Ben Affleck in 1998).

Last year, Michael Keaton won Best Actor in a Musical/Comedy for Birdman.
