The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards were held last night in Beverly Hills. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were on hand for the third time to host the evening, which is widely known as one of the boozier award ceremonies Hollywood has to offer.
Richard Linklater’s Boyhood was, expectedly, a big winner of the night, taking home three awards, including Best Most Picture – Drama and Best Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette. Birdman, another critical favorite during this award season, grabbed statues for Best Actor for Michael Keaton as well as Best Screenplay. Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel added the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical to its growing pile of accolades.
Newcomer digital network Amazon Studios grabbed two Globes for its new series Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor, who himself took home an award for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. The series also took home the prize for Best TV Comedy or Musical. Gina Rodriguez, another newcomer, won Best Comedy Actress for her starring role in the breakout CW series Jane The Virgin, which was just picked up for a second season. Matt Bomer picked up his first Golden Globe for his work in HBO’s The Normal Heart.
George Clooney was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award this year, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.
