72nd Golden Globe Awards Winners

HFPA gave out their annual awards last night in a ceremony full of jokes and drunk folks, I can only assume because I wasn't able to watch it myself. So the Globes winner for best picture drama 2014 is "Boyhood", as predicted by everybody. The film also won awards for its director Richard Linklater and supporting actress Patricia Arquette. A great win for the film that it is and also for the kind of filmmaking Mr. Linklater has been so great at. Continuing his love for films where the idea of time and relationships are explored. On the comedy/musical side, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" won the big prize over "Birdman", a film I am sure everyone was predicting to win. The Wes Anderson directed film was my pick for screenplay instead but Birdman won that award, funny! The acting prizes all went to the predicted ones except for best actress in a comedy/musical which went to Amy Adams for "Big Eyes", I had Emily Blunt and Julianne Moore predicted for that. This is Adams' second consecutive win after "American Hustle" last year. Golden Globes had more surprises in stored as well. The foreign language award went to Russia's "Levitathan" over popular choices "Ida" and "Force Majeure". Animated award went to "How To Train Your Dragon 2" over "The Lego Movie". I was a bit confused predicting original score which I thought will go to either "Interstellar" or "Birdman" but instead, they gave it to "The Theory of Everything", boring! So what does Golden Globes tell us? Well they told us what was already being established that its between Boyhood-Birdman-The Grand Budapest Hotel. Keaton vs Redmayne and Julianne Moore will finally win something from the Academy.
