Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Adams and American Hustle win big at the Golden Globes
Coming into this awards season, I really thought that there were going to be some noticeable snubs, most notably, I didn’t think that Leonardo DiCaprio would get any credit for his great performance in THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and I thought Amy Adams might get overlooked for her great turn in AMERICAN HUSTLE. Well, I was wrong on both counts as both Leo and Amy won Best Actor and Best Actress respectively at the Golden Globes. As glad as I was to see them win, I wouldn’t say there were many surprises at this year’s Golden Globes, except maybe that 12 YEARS A SLAVE was shut out of every category except Best Motion Picture Drama. I guess that’s the most important award, so fans of the film shouldn’t be too disappointed. DALLAS BUYER’S CLUB won Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor, which might be a little bit of an upset.
As for TV, I think the big shock comes with Andy Samberg winning Best Actor for ‘Brooklyn Nine Nine’. I’m not complaining since I’ve been defending the guy for years, but I was surprised to see him win. Obviously, ‘Breaking Bad’ won Best Drama and Best Actor and if they hadn’t, I think fans might have started rioting.
So what does this mean for the Oscar race? I don’t think it means much at all. Going into tonight, 12 YEARS A SLAVE and AMERICAN HUSTLE were the two favorites and if anything, it solidified their foothold on the Oscar race. I think the stars of DALLAS BUYER’S CLUB have to be looked at as real contenders and if 12 YEARS A SLAVE gets shut out of every other category, then it might be hard pressed to win Best Picture.
