After the Golden Globes nominated “The Martian” as Best Picture – Comedy or Musical, many viewers questioned the validity of this choice.
Sure, “The Martian” has its light touches and humorous moments, but at the end of the day this decision was made for the sole purpose of the film having a better shot at winning the prize. It’s a move that paid off somewhat, as Matt Damon won the Best Actor – Comedy or Musical prize, something he probably wouldn’t have if he was facing off against Leonardo DiCaprio in the drama category.
The Globes’ decision sparked a ton of hilarious responses and well-earned criticisms, but fortunately for the Hollywood Foreign Press, one savvy YouTuber has solved the problem by turning the movie into an actual comedy. The YouTube channel PayingforMovies adds classic comedy elements like laugh tracks and slapstick humor to tense scenes, making the movie a worthy recipient of its Golden Globe win.
