The 71st Golden Globe Awards

This Sunday, the Golden Globe Awards took place. For those of you who missed it, here are the winners (from the movie categories):

Best Picture – Drama: 12 Years A Slave

Best Picture – Musical or Comedy: American Hustle

Best Actor – Drama: Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club

Best Actress – Drama: Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine

Best Actor – Musical or Comedy: Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street

I am predicting that the Oscars might turn out very similarly, with 12 Years A Slave or American Hustle winning Best Picture, Jennifer Lawrence winning Best Supporting Actress, and Frozen winning Best Animated Feature. The Oscar nominations will be announced this Thursday.

  2. My dear Gal,
    Thank you so much for this up-date which really satisfied my curiosity since I hadn’t seen the Golden Globe ceremony. I haven’t seen ’12 Years a Slave’ and I am really curious to see it. We saw American Hustle and didn’t like it at all. Neither did any of our friends who saw it. It is boring and confusing. We also saw ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ – although some of it is disgusting and the movie is too long and slow, we thought it was much better than ‘American Hustle’. Leornardo di Caprio is wonderful and fully deserves the award. We also saw ‘Blue Jasmine’ and Cate Blanchett was amazing! The best actress of all, in my mind, was Meryl Streep in ‘August, Osage County’. She gives a one in a lifetime performance. I guess she didn’t get the award because she has received many awards and 3 or 4 Oscars throughout her career.
    Lots of love, Dvora

  3. You’ve really imrpessed me with that answer!
