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.
