Winners Of The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards


Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (thankfully) returned as hosts last night for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards and they nailed it. The awards show itself, as Fey described it, was a “beautiful mess”, but nonetheless an entertaining “beautiful mess.”

The jokes and digs were often sharply funny, as well as the unplanned (and the drunken) moments throughout the show such as Emma Thompson holding a martini in one hand and her shoes in the other as she presented the award for Best Screenplay and Jonah Hill and his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Margot Robbie nervously, but successfully, read from a sheet after a teleprompter error.

After being shut out of the acting categories as well as the writing, and directing categories, Steve McQueen’s masterful drama 12 Years A Slave won the top prize of the night: Best Motion Picture – Drama. An obviously shocked (or perhaps confused) Steve McQueen, along with some cast members and producers, walked up onto the stage to accept the award. It was a win that’s undoubtedly well deserved.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association must’ve really liked David O. Russell’s con-artist drama (or comedy?) American Hustle as the film took home three big awards, including Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actress In A Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for Amy Adams, and Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical. David O. Russell lost to Spike Jonze’s Her for Best Screenplay and Gravity’s Alfonso Cuarón for Best Director.

The Wolf of Wall Street’s Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor In a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical and hilariously thanked his “fellow comedians” Christian Bale, Joaquin Phoenix, Oscar Isaac, and gave a classy and special shout-out to the legendary Bruce Dern. The always-magnificent Cate Blanchett won the Golden Globe for Best Actress In a Motion Picture – Drama for her incredible performance in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, which hopefully pivots her in a good position for her second Oscar. Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, who appeared together in the drama Dallas Buyers Club, both won for their performances in the film.

HBO’s Behind The Candelabra, AMC’s Breaking Bad, and the FOX’s rookie comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine were the big winners of the TV categories. Bryan Cranston won Best Actor In A Television Series – Drama for his praised performance as Walter White in Breaking Bad, which deservedly won Best TV Series – Drama last night. One of the biggest disappointments of the night was Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul losing to Jon Voigt in the Best Supporting Actor In A Series, Miniseries, or TV Movie category.

Former Saturday Night Live cast member Andy Samberg surprisingly won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series – Comedy for his performance in Brooklyn Nine-Nine (which also won for Best TV Series – Comedy, shutting out both Girls and Modern Family). Least surprisingly, Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace biopic Behind The Candelabra won two big television awards of the night including Best Miniseries or TV Movie and Best Actor In A Miniseries, or TV Movie for Michael Douglas.
