Kate Winslet picked up the award for best supporting actress at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles.

The British actress won for her portrayal of Joanna Hoffman, the marketing chief and right-hand woman at Apple, in the biopic, 'Steve Jobs', directed by fellow Brit, Danny Boyle.

Other British winners at the ceremony included singer Sam Smith, for his Bond track, 'Writing's On The Wall', and the BBC's adaptation of 'Wolf Hall' was named best mini-series.

British nominees who missed out included Eddie Redmayne, Dame Helen Mirren, Mark Rylance, Dame Maggie Smith and Idris Elba.

The big winner on the night was 'The Revenant', which picked up the awards for the best movie, best actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and best director (Alejandro G Inarritu).

The Golden Globes are typically the first of the major screen awards which culminate with the BAFTAs and the Academy Awards.
