Golden Globes Award Winners: The Complete List

There is still no apparent front runner for the Oscars after a Golden Globes that seemed more reminiscent of an episode of Oprah or the Gay Byrne era of The Late Late Show (“there’s one for everyone in the audience!”) than an awards ceremony.

You win a prize! Everybody wins a prize!

In the Motion Picture categories, Boyhood won three Golden Globes (Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress). The Theory of Everything took home two (Best Actor in a Drama & Best Original Score), as did Birdman (Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical and Best Screenplay). Still Alice, Whiplash, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Big Eyes, Selma, How To Train Your Dragon 2 and Leviathan all took home one Golden Globe.

On the TV side, the Golden Globes voters maintained their recent tradition of voting for little-watched, new shows: Showtime’s The Affair nabbed two awards (Best TV Drama and Best Actress in a TV Drama), as did Amazon’s Transparent (Best TV Comedy and Best Actor in a TV Comedy). Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of either of these shows. Until tonight, neither had most people watching the Golden Globes. FX’s reboot of the Coen brother’s Fargo also won two awards (Best Miniseries and Best Actor in a Miniseries). The prizes amongst the other categories were split between Downton Abbey, The Honorable Woman, House of Cards, Jane The Virgin and The Normal Heart, with all of them winning one.

Surprisingly, the Brits continue to beat the Yanks on their home turf with BBC and ITV both able to claim Golden Globe wins on a night when none of the big four US broadcast networks took home a prize.

Anyone thinking that these wins will serve as a guide for the Oscars should be wary – there is no crossover between the 90 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (who give out the Golden Globes) and the over 6,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (who give out the Oscars). The winners of the awards given by the various Hollywood guilds and associations (Screen Actors Guild, Writers Guild of America, Directors Guild of America, Producers Guild of America, etc.) are usually a much better guide to Oscar contenders’ chances as there is quite a large crossover between the memberships of the guilds and the Academy.

Historically, the winners of the Golden Globes for the Musical or Comedy categories have been largely ignored by the Oscar voters – which doesn’t bode well for Wes Anderson’s chances of adding a golden statuette to the elaborate artisan crafted antique display case he is surely planning to house his Golden Globe.
