'Moonlight,' starring UT alum Trevante Rhodes, won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Drama.

AUSTIN - A former Longhorn Track and Field star walked away from the Golden Globes with more than just memories of one of the biggest award shows on television.

The film 26-year-old Trevante Rhodes starred in, Moonlight, a story of human connection and self-discovery, won the award for Best Motion Picture in the Drama category.

And with the big win for Moonlight at the Golden Globes, it's also favored to do great at the Oscars in February, along with "Lala Land" and "Manchester by the Sea", according to the Wall Street Journal.
