BOYHOOD is the Big Winner at the 2014 Golden Globes

Overall, I was happy with the Golden Globes’ film winners.

 

BOYHOOD was the big winner with three awards. It won Best Drama Film, Richard Linklater won Best Director, and Patricia Arquette won Best Supporting Actress.

 

BIRDMAN (Best Screenplay and Michael Keaton, Best Musical/Comedy Actor) and THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING (Best Score and Eddie Redmayne, Best Drama Actor) both won two awards apiece.

 

The biggest surprise of the night was THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL winning Best Musical/Comedy Film over BIRDMAN. For me, BIRDMAN is the best film of the year. Don’t get me wrong, I love THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, but I would expect it to win Best Screenplay (which BIRDMAN won) before winning Best Musical/Comedy Film.

 

I was thrilled that HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 won Best Animated Feature. THE LEGO MOVIE has been getting an inordinate amount of awards this season. It is clever and fun, but HTTYD2 is the better film.

 

The two locks won: J.K. Simmons (WHIPLASH) winning Best Supporting Actor and Julianne Moore (STILL ALICE) for Best Drama Actress. Both are deserving and should win Oscars in February.

 

You can find below the complete list of the 2014 Golden Globes winners.
