Awards Season 2015: Golden Globes Winners

Last night, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the winners of this year's Golden Globe Awards, for both television and film, in a ceremony hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for the third- and sadly final- time.

Here is the full list of film winners.

Best Motion Picture (Drama): Boyhood

Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy): The Grand Budapest Hotel

Best Director: Richard Linklater (Boyhood)

Best Actor (Drama): Eddie Redmayne (The Theory Of Everything)

Best Actor (Comedy or Musical): Michael Keaton (Birdman)

Best Actress (Drama): Julianne Moore (Still Alice)

Best Actress (Comedy or Musical): Amy Adams (Big Eyes)

Best Supporting Actor: J.K. Simmons (Whiplash)

Best Supporting Actress: Patricia Arquette (Boyhood)

Best Screenplay: Birdman

Best Original Score: The Theory Of Everything

Best Original Song: 'Glory' (Selma)

Best Foreign Language Film: Leviathan

Best Animated Feature Film: How To Train Your Dragon 2

Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award: George Clooney

I honestly don't know what they were thinking, giving Animated Feature to How To Train Your Dragon 2. I mean, it was a good film (and a decent sequel) but The Lego Movie is clearly a superior film. Birdman was widely tipped to get Best Musical or Comedy, so The Grand Budapest Hotel's win has been a bit of a surprise. Amy Adams gets a rare back-to-back Golden Globe win (having won the same award last year for her performance in American Hustle). The Best Actor (Drama) category was a tough one so it's a real hats off to Eddie Redmayne for his win. 

Awards Season Week rumbles on as there's going to be a short piece tomorrow about the various Guild Award nominations and what they might mean for Thursday's Oscars announcements.
