Jared Leto's return to acting is paying off.  The Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman picked up a Golden Globe Sunday night for his role as an AIDS positive transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club -- a role he said required a lot of transformation. 

On a more serious note, Leto thanked "all the Rayons of the world" -- in reference to his character -- for the inspiration they gave him.  He also thanked everyone for supporting is first movie role in six years.  He said it's more than an honor to come back to this kind of love, adding that he never expected or even dreamed it. 

Leto wasn't the only rocker to get a trophy at this year's Golden Globes.  U2 also won the Best Original Song award for "Ordinary Love" from "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom." 

They beat out Coldplay for the award, but during the Irish rockers' acceptance speech, they thanked Coldplay's Chris Martin for helping them with their song. 

Meanwhile, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros leader Alex Ebert won for Best Original Score.  The indie folk rocker's work on the film "All Is Lost" was honored over scores by film composing icons like Hans Zimmer and John Williams.
