71.Golden Globes:12 Years A Slave won best movie award / Breaking News
The Golden Globes on users cleared at the Oscars ? Rarely, this set was so wrong as this year. The jury distributed Prices on too many movies, it lacked a big favorite – and most of all the heroes of the acclaimed US TV series ran the movie stars from the rank.
As co-host Tina Fey at the end of the gala with the words “It was the wonderful chaos on which we had hoped,” summed up, so she had to at least 50 percent right. A chaos was the Golden Globes ceremony in every case. But also wonderful? Well, yes.
However, in a disappointing night for homegrown talent, McQueen and the film’s star, Chiwetel Ejiofor, lost out in their individual categories.
American Hustle was the biggest winner, picking up three awards at the Beverly Hills ceremony.
The film, about two con artists recruited to help an FBI sting operation, won best musical/comedy.
Two of its all-star cast, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, also picked up gongs for best actress and supporting actress.
British hopes were high at the start of the night, particularly in the best actress and actor (drama) categories.
Dame Judi Dench, Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet were all in the running, but ended up losing out to Cate Blanchett for her role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine.
Idris Elba and Chiwetel Ejiofor – nominated for Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, and the much-fancied 12 Years A Slave – also came away empty-handed.
Instead it was Matthew McConaughey’s role in Dallas Buyers Club, as a rodeo cowboy diagnosed with Aids, that took home the honours.
“Ron Woodroof’s story was an underdog, for years it was an underdog, we couldn’t get it made … I’m so glad it got passed on so many times or it wouldn’t have come to me,” said McConaughey.
The Globes also honoured the best of the year’s television, with cult hit Breaking Bad scooping two prizes following its dramatic finale last year.
The tale of a teacher who ends up selling crystal meth won best TV drama, beating Downton Abbey, and Bryan Cranston won best actor.
“This is such a wonderful honour and such a lovely way to say goodbye to the show that meant so much to me,” said Cranston.
Hollywood veteran Michael Douglas’ portrayal of flamboyant pianist Liberace in Behind The Candelabra also got him a share of the awards limelight.
But actually were just the performer categories within film compared to television boring and unemotional – and not only because the favorites such as Lawrence or Cate Blanchett interspersed . Two audience and critic favorites were awarded Bryan Cranston and Amy Poehler Also in the TV series . The guests of the Globe gala dinners celebrating the two but with a vehemence as the abseitigsten underdogs would have fought to the top. In general, the assembled stars, similar seemed likely as the audience at home to feel more connected to the series – and hailed the victory of “Breaking Bad” as the best drama as well as the triumph of your own good taste.
Seen were also the Golden Globes for the power shift that has taken place in the U.S. entertainment industry over the past four or five years . TV makes film not only the rank in dispute as the most innovative medium , the narrative density and duration of the new quality series binds people emotionally stronger – which seems to apply also to the
Hollywood stars . You just imagine: Meryl Streep at the binge viewing with “Orange is The New Black” or Robert Redford, than he does “Breaking Bad ” finale still pours himself a glass of red wine and then sinks into the TV couch .
Oh , maybe they were a wonderful chaos , this 71 Golden Globes.
The 69-year-old won best actor in a mini-series or TV movie, telling his co-star Matt Damon: “The only reason you’re not here is I had more sequins.”
