With the biggest movie awards ceremony of the year, The Academy Awards, coming really soon, the Golden Globes is considered to be a good predictor for the upcoming Oscar winners.
With that being said, the unstoppable Jennifer Lawrence won Best Supporting Actress for a Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) for “American Hustle”, and just a few moments after Amy Adams won Best Lead Actress for the same movie.
David O’ Russell’s “American Hustle” also won itself the award for Best Motion Picture for a Comedy or Musical, which made them the biggest winners of the night for films.

As for the Best Picture for a Drama, “12 Years a Slave” beat out a wild range of great films, though the winner well deserved the award! “I’m a little bit in shock,” said director Steve McQueen during his acceptance speech, where he also thanked Brad Pitt because, “Without whom this movie never would have been made.”

As for the Best Actor and Actress for the Drama category, Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett won awards for their performances in “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Blue Jasmine”, respectively.
But McConaughey wasn’t the only winner to represent “Dallas Buyers Club”, which told a story about an electrician and hustler Ron Woodroof in 1985 who worked around the system to help AIDS patients get the medication they need after he is himself diagnosed with the disease.

Leonardo DiCaprio finally won the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for “The Wolf of Wall Street” after countless nominations and no wins.
“I never would have guessed that I would win a Best Actor award in a Comedy,” joked DiCaprio during his acceptance speech.
He also spent his time on stage to give a huge tribute to director Martin Scorsese, “To Martin Scorsese… you have influenced everybody in this room. You’re not only an incredible visionary; you put the very fabric of our culture on screen. As cinema unfolds, you will be regarded as one of the great artists of our time.”

Filmmaker and screenwriter Spike Jonze might not have ended up winning for Best Motion Picture or Best Director but he did win Best Screenplay for futuristic romance “Her” starring Joaquin Phoenix. Alfonso Cuaron won the Best Director award for his work in “Gravity”.
But the highest honour of the night, the HFPA’s Cecil B. DeMille award was given to legendary filmmaker Woody Allen who has been nominated for 13 Globes previously, winning best Screenplay twice, for “The Purple Rose of Cairo” in 1985 and “Midnight in Paris” in 2011.
