All the Winners And Highlights from the 70th Annual Golden Globes

The 70th annual Golden Globe Awards were fun and a lot of that had to with the fabulous hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.

Their opening monologue was witty and thoroughly entertaining! The only complaint I have is that there was not enough of them! Here’s their opening monologue

The presenters this year did not seem as wooden or unfunny – the HFPA got the pairing right so they were actually entertaining – especially Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell (if Amy and Tina don’t want to come back next year, this would be a great pairing to take over) and Jason Bateman and Aziz Ansari.

The most famous presenter on stage had to be former President Bill Clinton. He was called on to introduce Argo, nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama – and was the eventual winner.

The speech of the night goes to Jodie Foster, the recipient of the Cecil B DeMille Award (lifetime achievement award).

A close second goes to Adele, who admitted that she didn’t expect to win for Best Original Song (Skyfall), herself and her friend, both new mums, just came for a bit of a night out and a laugh.

The pleasant surprise of the night, given the fact that he wasn’t even nominated for an Oscar, was Ben Affleck taking the Best Director prize from the likes of Steven Spielberg, Ang Li, and Kathryn Bigelow! His film Argo also won best Motion Picture – Drama.

Les Misérables won Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical

No-one was surprised when Anne Hathaway’s name was read out for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture (even though this was one of the strongest categories of the evening). Another fabulous speech – recognising all the important people in her life 

Anne Hathaway wasn’t the only Les Misérables actor to be recognised on the night. Her co-star Hugh Jackman took out the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical/Comedy

Daniel Day Lewis won the Best Actor in A Motion Picture Drama, for his role as President Lincoln, in Lincoln

Quentin Tarantino won a Golden Globe for his Original Screenplay Django Unchained. He thanked his cast and amazing friends who let him read them his script but don’t tell him he’s wrong.

Christoph Waltz also received an award for Django Unchained. He won in the Best Supporting Actor Category

Although it was heavily nominated, Silver Linings Playbook, walked away with only one award – that went to Jennifer Lawrence for Best Supporting Actress in A Motion Picture Comedy/Musical.

Brave took home the award for Best Animated feature. My favourite line from this speech is, “Being brave is about being true to yourself and allowing your loved ones that same freedom.”

On the TV front, Homeland scooped the pool, winning Best TV Drama, Best Actress in a TV Drama (Claire Danes) and Best Actor in a TV Drama (Damian Lewis)

It was great to see Lena Dunham and her show Girls receive recognition from the HFPA. Dunham won Best Actress in a TV Musical or Comedy and the show won Best TV Show Musical or Comedy. Both her speeches were gorgeous, heartfelt and funny.

Julieanne Moore won Best Actress in a TV Mini-Series/Movie for her role as Sarah Palin in Game Change. Game Change also won Best TV Mini-Series/Movie

Kevin Costner was reflective when accepting his award for Best Actor in a TV Mini-Series or Movie for his role in Hatfields and McCoys, looking back on his time in the business and taking us back to his very first Golden Globes experience.

So that’s it for another Golden Globes ceremony, but don’t fret this is only the beginning of awards season. There’s still a bunch of awards ceremonies between now and the Oscars!

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
