WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The 73rd annual Golden Globes, held Sunday, Jan. 10 in Beverly Hills, CA, was filled with a host of Westchester winners.

Scarsdale native Aaron Sorkin won the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay for the movie "Steve Jobs," edging out Emma Donoghue ("Room"), Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer ("Spotlight"), Charles Randolph and Adam McKay ("The Big Short"), and Quentin Tarantino ("The Hateful Eight").

The ceremony also honored Mount Vernon native Denzel Washington with the coveted Cecil B. DeMille Award. Washington brought his family to the stage and thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press for making him feel like family over the years.

The awards ceremony, held Sunday, night Jan. 10, in Beverly Hills, CA, featured other Westchester residents, among those Bedford's Rooney Mara who was up for Best Actress in a motion picture for her role in "Carol," (she lost to Brie Larson of "Room") and Jeffrey Tambor of Cross River, who had been nominated for Best Actor for his role in "Transparent." but lost to Gael García Bernal of Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle.”

And in one more Westchester connection, actor Oscar Isaac, who starred as former Yonkers Mayor Nick Wasicsko in HBO’s "Show Me a Hero," gave a shout-out to Wasicsko's widow and Hastings resident Nay Wasicsko-McLaughlin, who, he said, helped him tremendously with the role. The show was based on the book by Dobbs Ferry Writer Lisa Belkin.
