71st Golden Globes Awards’ result

Golden Globes serves as the first of the three major awards presentation to honour the best of motion pictures for the past year. The other two would be the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (simply known as BAFTA) and the prestigious Academy Awards (famously known as Oscars). 71st Golden Globes Awards was held on 12th January 2014, while the last two would be somewhere in February or latest March to wrap up the awards season for films released in year 2013.

Hence, Golden Globes also sometimes or quite precisely serves as the precursor or contributes a hint or two to BAFTA and Academy Awards. Hereby is the full list of winners for the 71st Golden Globes Awards:



  • Picture, Drama: “12 Years a Slave.”
  • Picture, Musical or Comedy: “American Hustle.”
  • Actor, Drama: Matthew McConaughey, “Dallas Buyers Club.”
  • Actress, Drama: Cate Blanchett, “Blue Jasmine.”
  • Director: Alfonso Cuaron, “Gravity.”
  • Actor, Musical or Comedy: Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
  • Actress, Musical or Comedy: Amy Adams, “American Hustle.”
  • Supporting Actor: Jared Leto, “Dallas Buyers Club.”
  • Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, “American Hustle.”
  • Foreign Language: “The Great Beauty.”
  • Animated Film: “Frozen.”
  • Screenplay: Spike Jonze, “Her.”
  • Original Score: Alex Ebert, “All Is Lost.”

(Shown above is ‘American Hustle’, the biggest winner of the awards this year, taking home 3 trophies, while ’12 Years A Slave’ won only one, but is the last major award of the night; Best Motion Picture – Drama)

Overall comment: I didn’t watch most of the nominated films this year. Hence, nothing much to say. For best animated film, I’m happy that ‘Frozen’ wins. It truly stands out among the rest (the other nominated are The Croods and Despicable Me 2). I’m quite sure it will win for Oscars too. But I’m a bit surprised it lost for best original song category. Jennifer Lawrence is always great on her performance and I had no doubt seeing her winning best supporting actress in ‘American Hustle’ (this I didn’t watch). Leonardo DiCaprio and Amy Adams are both great too, and I’m happy they win. Also satisfied with ‘Gravity’ winning best director for Alfonso Cuaron. I watched this movie and it is wonderful! Too bad, Sandra Bullock couldn’t get best actress for this movie. I watched ‘Captain Phillips’ recently and it was another surprisingly good movie with Tom Hanks in it but it lost out both for best picture and best actor. Lastly, I already expected ’12 Years A Slave’ would win Best Motion Picture – Drama since it has received the best critical acclaims among others this year. I haven’t watch it, but I don’t think I would have interest on this kind of usually-boring movie.


  • Series, Drama: “Breaking Bad.”
  • Actor, Drama: Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad.”
  • Actress, Drama: Robin Wright, “House of Cards.”
  • Series, Musical or Comedy: “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
  • Actress, Musical or Comedy: Amy Poehler, “Parks and Recreation.”
  • Actor, Musical or Comedy: Andy Samberg, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
  • Miniseries or Movie: “Behind the Candelabra.”
  • Actress, Miniseries or Movie: Elisabeth Moss, “Top of the Lake.”
  • Actor, Miniseries or Movie: Michael Douglas, “Behind the Candelabra.”
  • Supporting Actress, Series, Miniseries or Movie: Jacqueline Bisset, “Dancing on the Edge.”
  • Supporting Actor, Series, Miniseries or Movie: Jon Voight, “Ray Donovan.”

Overall comment: I didn’t watch Hollywood’s television series. So, no comment. I still stick to Cantonese dramas. 

So now, looking forward to next month for the 67th BAFTA Film Awards on 16th February 2014 and finally, the 86th Academy Awards on 2nd March 2014. This year’s Oscars is quite late, and I’m excited for Ellen DeGeneres, a very popular and funny comedian to host the awards’ ceremony. Nomination for it will be released on 16th January 2014. That’s just few more days later.
