Kicking off awards season, the 2016 Golden Globes was a mad cap affair with big wins for The Revenant and The Martian, with fashion and beauty looks under the microscope. Here's what happened behind the curtains

1. Hair and makeup artists arrived armed and ready with their best kits.

3. Mark Ruffalo took some time off to prepare his acceptance speech, just in case he wins.

markruffaloIn the offhand chance of actually winning tonight, I thought it prudent to prepare some remarks... @goldenglobes

4. Some stars took a chill pill before the show the only way they can: Lounging while getting ready, or pumping some iron to fit into their outfit.

6. On the way, Olivia Wilde was in her best behaviour.

@oliviawilde | Most parties that start at 3pm involve bouncy castles. Don't let us down, Hollywood. #globes

7. Before Katy Perry presented Sam Smith with the Best Original Song Award, she gave us a firsthand view of the preparations.

@katyperry | Help. I have to "act professional" all night. #goldenglobes

8. The winners took all: Lady Gaga won Best Actress in a Miniseries for her role in American Horror Story, while Taraji P. Henson took home the award for Best Actress in a Television Series for her role as Cookie on Empire. Rachel Bloom's new pet is her Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Comedy, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

9. Brie Larson, the big winner who took home the Best Actress in a Drama award for her role in Room predicted her win by celebrating early — in the form of a chocolate-covered version of the award.

@brielarson | Chillin with a chocolate Golden Globe. LET'S PARTY.

10. Finally, after awards have been given out and speeches have been made, host Ricky Gervais posted a photo of himself taken on stage with this charming caption.

@rickygervais | Can't wait for people to start reporting that I offended some people at The #GoldenGlobes. Of course I fucking did.
