Golden Globes Awards 2014: '12 Years a Slave' Wins Best Picture

The final award of the night and arguably the biggest honor of the night … the winner is 12 Years a Slave. The other nominees in the category were:

Captain Phillips

Up until this final award of the night, the Golden Globes had shut out the film passing on it for all the other categories. 12 Years a Slave is already expected to be an Oscars front runner.

On that note, this year's Golden Globes are over and we'll just have to wait until the Oscars on March 2 for more movie award's show glory. Thanks for playing. 

Golden Globes Winners 2014: Matthew McConaughey Wins Best Actor

The Best Actor award was anyone's to win tonight but it went to Matthew McConaughey continuing the year of the McConaughey combeack story (think, Mud, Wolf of Wall Street, True Detective AND Dallas Buyers Club). McConaughey proved that none of that success had changed him when during his acceptance speech he fell right back into the lilting southern dude drawl we all know and love him for. 

The other nominees in the category were:

Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years A Slave
Idris Elba, Mandela
Tom Hanks, Captain Phillips
Robert Redford, All Is Lost

Golden Globes Winners 2014: Best Actress Goes to Cate Blanchett

Really, incredibly strong nominees in the Best Actress category but the award goes very deservedly to Cate Blanchett for her role in Blue Jasmine. Blanchett is a heavy favorite for the Oscar, already, and odds are she will be winning. 

The nominees in the Best Actress category tonight were: 

Sandra Bullock, Gravity
Judy Dench, Philomena
Emma Thompson, Saving Mr. Banks
Kate Winslet, Labor Day

Woody Allen, Blue Jasmine director, was also honored earlier in the evening with the Golden Globe's lifetime achievement award. 

'American Hustle' Wins Big at the Golden Globes

With the really stellar line up of nominees, this was one of the toughest (and least predictable) categories of the night – but American Hustle won. The nominees in the category were:

American Hustle
Inside Llewyn Davis
The Wolf Of Wall Street

After wins by Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams I guess things were looking in the film's favor, but the DiCaprio win threw me a bit for a loop.

Looks like we'll be seeing more of American Hustle later this year at the Academy Awards.  

Leonardo DiCaprio Wins Golden Globe!

Wow. The winner for Best Actor in a Comedy goes to Leonardo DiCaprio. Much like when a new president is elected, this wins means that half of the country is thrilled and half of the country is absolutely pissed. 

The list of nominees was really strong this year and included:

Christian Bale, American Hustle
Bruce Dern, Nebraska
Oscar Isaac, Inside Llewyn Davis
Joaquin Phoenix, Her

Hopefully DiCaprio's win means we'll be hearing his name at the Oscar nomination announcement later this week. 


Brooklyn Nine-Nine Wins Shockingly Big at the Golden Globes

A really shocking win for Best TV Comedy. I mean, did anyone see Brooklyn Nine-Nine taking home this prize? Especially considering the rest of the company they were in? 

The nominees in the category were:

The Big Bang Theory
Brooklyn Nine Nine
Modern Family
Parks and Recreation

Last year’s prize went to Girls and this year the Emmy’s gave the award to Modern Family (which they often do). 

Well, at least we can rest assured that the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is going to have a really fun time at the after party. 

Golden Globes Winners 2014: Best Director Goes to Alfonso Cuaron

One of the top honors of the night and it goes to Alfonso Cuaron. 

The Best Director nominees were:

Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity
Paul Greengrass, Captain Phillips
Steve McQueen, 12 Years a Slave
Alexander Payne, Nebraska
David O. Russell, American Hustle

Last year the prize famously went to Ben Affleck who was then snubbed by the Academy in the same category. 

Cuaron was charming and gracious and relayed a tale of telling Sandra Bullock he was going to give her an "ear piece" and Bullock thinking (due to his accent) that he was saying "herpes." Win. 

Why Isn’t Woody Allen at the Golden Globes?

You might have noticed that Woody Allen just won the Cecil B. Demille Award. You might also have noticed that’s Diane Keaton up on stage, not Woody Allen. Allen is being recognized for a lifetime of achievement but he’s also chosen not to attend. The reason? He doesn’t like awards shows.

His hatred of award shows is nothing new. Just have a peek of the below footage of Allen winning (or not winning?) the 1978 Best Director Oscar. Not an Allen in sight.

Golden Globe Winners 2014: Amy Poehler Wins

One of the most anticipated awards of the night Best Actress in a TV Comedy Series goes to Amy Poehler. A huge category filled with amazing women. (Amy also made out with Bono upon winning her award, so there's that). 

The nominees were:

Zooey Deschanel, New Girl
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
Lena Dunham, Girls
Julia Louis Dreyfus, Veep
Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation

Last year’s winner was Lena Dunham. 

Frozen Wins Golden Globe For Best Animated Film

It seemed like there was only one real contender in this category and assumptions were right. The Golden Globe for Best Animated Film goes to Frozen.

The nominees in the category were:

The Croods
Despicable Me 2

Golden Globes 2014 LIVE: Winners, Nominees, and All the Award Show Updates

Awards shows have a way of creeping up on you. Every year at around this time cinephiles, couch critics, TV junkies, and average moviegoers tune in to and turn on the Hollywood fanfare that is awards season. This Sunday night, the Golden Globes will kick off the annual pageantry and honor the year's best in television and film.

Argue what you will about how meaningless these awards shows might or might not be, or whether or not people our age really even care. The bottom line is 2013 was a memorable year for movies and television. One of the greatest television dramas ever finished its run, a British director gave us what critics have called "the greatest feature film ever made about American slavery," we're smack in the middle of television's donned golden age, and a campy comic-book space story with jaw-dropping images revolutionized visual effects. And that's only the tip of the iceberg.

On Sunday, the Golden Globes will honor this year's Hollywood small and big screen successes. With Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosting again, there is a built in laugh-factor, not to mention a much-appreciated younger-generation ratings ploy. Last year's broadcast raked in a 6.4 rating in adults 18-49, signifiying a 28% increase from the 2012 show and our generation's firm vote of confidence for the Fey-Poehler duo. More than 19 million people tuned in and the men behind the curtain are banking on a ratings repeat.

Historically, the Golden Globes have been brushed aside as the drunken younger sibling to the glamorous and oh-so-prestigious Oscars. It's an overflowing awards show packed with room for films that won't get Academy Award nods (like, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen last year or Rush this year). But online, the Golden Globes are revered for this very reason: Unexpected TV shows and less serious movies get their moment in the sun, and thanks to the bites and booze, celebs are looser and gaffes abound.

This year's most nominated of the night? In the film category, those honors go to American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave. For TV we're looking at the Netflix series House Of Cards – along with some contentious snubs including Mad Men and Homeland.

The event itself begins 8 p.m. EST this Sunday night on NBC. We will be following along with this here live blog to give you up-to-the-minute coverage of the night, and to debrief on everything shady, hilarious, heartwarming, or skin-crawly. Stay tuned.
