10 times the Golden Globes got it right and the Oscars got it wrong

E!'S Big Predictions for 2016 Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globes do not run the awards schoolyard.

Often referred to as the less-serious show of the bunch, the Globes get picked on for tactics like honoring big names so they will attend (see host Ricky Gervais' 2011 monologue) and picking film and TV shows that are popular instead of critically acclaimed.

But, that doesn't mean the Globes always get it wrong.

For example, the Best Motion Picture -- Comedy or Musical category, which was added to the Globes' roundup in 1951, splits the category by genre and often raises eyebrows over some of the nominees being included in the coveted Best Picture race (this year, Matt Damon's The Martian will compete against Melissa McCarthy's Spy and Amy Schumer's Trainwreck). Still, the decision to split the category has given the Globes a chance to honor hoards of films that went on to lose at the Oscars but remain beloved today, including: The Graduate (1968), Working Girl (1989), Almost Famous (2000), Moulin Rouge! (2001), Lost in Translation (2004) and Sideways (2005).

Also this year, many eyes are on Leonardo DiCaprio and his nominations and potential nominations (the Oscars of which will be announced Jan. 14) for his performance in The Revenant. The actor has never won an Oscar -- despite winning two Globes for The Aviator (2005) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2014) -- and failed to even earn a nomination for his iconic role as Jack Dawson in Titanic.

The Globes are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which is made up of 82 International Film Critics. Only one is also a member of the Academy, which is why a nomination or even a win at the Globes is no indication that the nominee will have such luck at the Academy Awards. In the last decade, the Globes and the Oscars have overlapped only three times on the Best Picture winner (Slumdog Millionaire in 2008, Argo in 2012 and 12 Years a Slave in 2013).

Here are 10 examples (including two for DiCaprio) when the Globes strayed from the Oscars and now, looking back, did so in a big and memorable way.

1960: Marilyn Monroe

While Monroe was celebrated for her star-power, personal life and beauty, the Globes honored her acting talents when they awarded her Best Actress for Some Like It Hot in 1960. The legendary star, who died in 1962, never received an Oscar nomination throughout her career.

1983: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, which was the highest grossing film until Jurassic Park came along 10 years later, won Best Motion Picture -- Drama at the Globes, but the Steven Spielberg-directed classic and now-cultural phenomenon lost to Gandhi at the Oscars in 1983.

1999: Saving Private Ryan

In one of the most memorable Oscar upsets, Shakespeare in Love beat Saving Private Ryan for Best Picture in 1999, despite the latter taking home the Globe. Steven Spielberg did win for Best Director, which made it even more shocking when the period romantic comedy was announced as the winner over the epic World War II tale (the two awards usually go hand in hand).

1998: Leonardo DiCaprio

It's hard to believe that Jack Dawson wouldn't make the Oscars cut, but that's what happened in 1998 when Leonardo DiCaprio was left off a Best Actor nom for his iconic Titanic role. Best Actor nominees that year were Jack Nicholson (As Good as It Gets), Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting), Robert Duvall (The Apostle), Peter Fonda (Ulee's Gold) and Dustin Hoffman (Wag the Dog) -- and Nicholson won. DiCaprio did receive a Best Actor nomination at the Globes, even though he lost to Peter Fonda for Ulee's Gold.

2001: Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise has won three Golden Globes for roles that earned him nominations at the Oscars, but no wins. He picked up Best Actor for Born on the Fourth of July in 1990 and Jerry Maguire in 1997, and Best Supporting Actor for Magnolia in 2000. At the Oscars, it was Cuba Gooding Jr. who earned the memorable Maguire win, but Cruise's loss for Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia was the big snub (Michael Caine won for The Cider House Rules).
