Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘The Revenant’ was the biggest winner of the evening at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards held Sunday at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

‘The Revenant’ took home three golden statuettes. Iñárritu won the best director award, Leonardo DiCaprio took home the Best Actor in a Drama trophy. The movie was also named the Best Motion Picture-Drama.

"Thanks to all the native Americans who helped make this film possible. I cannot say how surprised I am and how proud I am to have survived this film with all these fellows," director Alejandro González Iñárritu said while accepting his Golden Globe for Best Director.

This is the second Golden Globe win for the Mexican director, having won last year for “Birdman.”

For star DiCaprio, 41, it was his third win, the two previous ones being for “The Aviator” (2004) and “The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013).

“What an incredible honor,” he said. “Wow, that meant a lot,” a visibly emotional DiCaprio humbly professed.

He extended words of support to his fellow nominees: “To the other fantastic performances in this category, you guys were incredible.”

“Two years ago we were immersed in nature [during filming]. This movie was about trust and no one was more deserving of our trust than our director. The depths to which he and the entire crew went to make this film were incredible,” DiCaprio said, talking about the filmmaking experience amid harsh weather and other challenges.

About the movie, he said: "This film was about survival, the triumph of the human spirit, but more than anything about trust,” adding, "I have never had an experience like this in my entire life."

He also paid tribute to his British co-star Tom Hardy, stating: "I know he would never bury me alone and leave me out in the cold like that."

DiCaprio also thanked all indigenous people in the world: “I want to thank all of the indigenous people in the world. It is time we protect your land and heard your voices.”

His “Titanic” co-star and friend Kate Winslet was the first winner on Sunday night. The Oscar-winning actress won in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture category for her work in “Steve Jobs.”

Winslet was the first to congratulate DiCaprio with a big hug. Their fans from “Titanic” days went crazy on Twitter.

“Kate and Leo won. We all won. Near, far, wherever you are,” a fan named Alex Goldschmidt posted on Twitter. Another, Amy Kaufman took snaps of the two actors hugging each other.

Meanwhile, Sylvester Stallone received a standing ovation for winning the best supporting actor award for “Creed.” He reprised the role of Rocky Balboa from"Rocky" series in the movie. "Most of all, I want to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I've ever had," he said during his acceptance speech.
