‘Boyhood’, ‘Grand Budapest’, ‘Transparent’ win big at Golden Globes 2015

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Show

Though it feels as though Awards Season has already trudged on for months, the 72nd Annual Golden Globes from Sunday night showed the season has really only just begun.

On their long road to the Oscars before nominations are announced this Thursday, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel struck a blow for mid-level indies by winning Best Motion Picture in both the Drama and Comedy or Musical categories respectively. Both Linklater and Anderson won their first ever Golden Globe prizes, with Linklater also taking home the award for Best Director.

Hello, how are you? Ask me anything about TV shows and movies and entertainment in general.

Television too had a strong night for up-and-coming shows, with freshman comedies and dramas all having a big evening on the awards stage. Transparent, Amazon’s comedy about a transgender woman, took home prizes for actor Jeffrey Tambor and for Best Comedy or Musical Series. The CW’s Jane the Virgin won a surprise Golden Globe for actress Gina Rodriguez. FX’s Coen Brothers spinoff Fargo won Best Miniseries. And Showtime’s The Affair scored prizes for Best Drama and Best Actress Ruth Wilson.

Perhaps the biggest winners though were Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, hosting together for their third consecutive and final year. Though they were used sparingly, they continued to prove why they are the most pleasant comedienne duo of friends working today. Their monologue leaned heavy on feminist themes rippling through Hollywood and the world, lampooning Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award recipient George Clooney, the time it took Steve Carell to get on his prosthetic nose, and most notably, Bill Cosby, with two impressions that left many in the audience stunned and will be sure to inspire think pieces taking up both sides of the cause.

Other winners of the evening included Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything, Julianne Moore for Still Alice, Michael Keaton for Birdman, and Amy Adams for Big Eyes.
