Globes Go Golden For American Hustle

While 12 Years A Slave takes the drama prize

Globes-Go-Golden-For-American-Hustle

It was a ceremony marked by technical glitches, teleprompter fails, rambling speeches, silenced swearing and the effortless comedy of hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. But this year’s Golden Globe Awards was also one that featured plenty of statuettes shared around many of the big nominees including Explosion At The Wig Factory – sorry, American Hustle – which picked up most gongs with three, 12 Years A Slave and Gravity. Dallas Buyers Club was the only other film to get more than one award, winning Best Actor (Drama) and Best Supporting Actor for Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto. On the TV front, Breaking Bad, Behind The Candelabra (released on TV in the US) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine each took two prizes.

Introduced as "Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s Lee Daniels’ The Butler’s Golden Globes", the wide spread of the usually quirky awards makes even the usually sketchy Oscar prognostication even tougher. American Hustle scored Best Picture (Comedy Or Musical), with Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence going home with the actress awards in the Comedy Or Musical category. But David O. Russell lost out on the Directing gong to Gravity’s Alfonso Cuaron and ceded the script award to Her's Spike Jonze.

12 Years A Slave, which had been facing a huge upset after losing every other category it was nominated for, emerged triumphant at the end, with a shell-shocked Steve McQueen leading his cast and crew up on stage to collect Best Picture (Drama) and offering a shout out to his wife, who found Solomon Northrup’s book in the first place (to find out what she’s reading now, hear him call her during his interview on the Empire Podcast). Cate Blanchett, to precisely no one's surprise, took Best Actress in the Drama thread for Blue Jasmine, while Matthew McConaughey landed Best Actor for Dallas Buyers Club.

There were pleasant surprises too for the likes of Andy Samberg and the team behind cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which won against some stiff competition. Dancing On The Edge's Jacqueline Bisset seemed even more unprepared to win than most, delivering a rambling speech that defied the Time’s Up music and attempts to launch a commercial break.

Co-host Poehler scored for her role on Parks And Recreation, a well-earned win after years of little recognition which earned her “a special place in hell” according to Fey (we're pretty sure she wasn't serious). And though he took home Best Actor (Comedy Or Musical) for Wolf Of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio didn’t do everything perfectly – just what is Philomania and can one catch it from trophies?
