Jennifer Lawrence won best comedy movie actress for her portrayal of the Miracle Mop inventor in "Joy," while Brie Larson, 26, beat veteran Cate Blanchett to take home her first major award for playing a young woman who is abducted and locked up for years in the movie drama "Room."

Lesbian drama "Carol" and Wall Street comedy "The Big Short," which had led nominations going into Sunday's ceremony, came home empty handed, as did admired Catholic Church sex abuse probe "Spotlight.".

Other popular winners includes Sylvester Stallone, 69, who received a standing ovation as best supporting film actor for reprising his iconic role as boxer Rocky Balboa in "Creed," beating presumed frontrunner Mark Rylance for "Bridge of Spies."

"I want to thank my imaginary friend Rocky Balboa for being the best friend I ever had," Stallone said.
