Golden Globe Awards

The winners of the HFPA's 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, the precursor to the Academy Awards, have been announced tonight at a ceremony held at The Beverly Hilton hotel, hosted by the incredibly talented Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, back from last year. Our list below will be updated with all film-related winners as they're revealed during the ceremony's live broadcast. The nominees were wild as usual, so it should be fun to see who ends up winning, and which films the HFPA fell in love with more than others. Here's to hoping they go for Her, 12 Years a Slave or Gravity. Find out who took home Globes! List below.

What do you think of the 2014 winners? How is the show with returning hosts Tina Fey & Amy Poehler? Are these an early indicator of any Oscars, or not? What favorite movies from 2013 are you rooting for?

Thoughts: If it weren't for Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave pulling out a last minute win for Best Drama (hooray! congrats!), I would've declared most of these Golden Globe winners blasphemy! Not really, but there were some odd picks. I enjoy American Hustle, but it's not that great and didn't really need to win so many awards. That said, I am very very happy that Spike Jonze's Her won for Best Screenplay, Alex Ebert's All is Lost score is beautiful, and Alfonso Cuarón winning Best Director is wonderful, but I would've preferred any other Best Actor, any other Best Foreign Language Film, and was really rooting for Lupita Nyong'o for Best Supporting Actress and Blue is the Warmest Color. But you can't always get everything with the HFPA. Oh well. Let's hope this awards momentum for 12 Years a Slave carries over to the Oscars.

    It's been a long time since I've been this satisfied with a list of award winners. So happy for Leo and Alfonso. Fassbender was better than Leto by a nose in my opinion but it was kind of a toss-up. 12 Years deserved the big win.

      Agree with you...just sad that Wolf didn't win over American Hustle... However, I missed Gervais so much, I didn't find those two funny at all, they had one good joke - Clooney floating away. Now I know how boring the Oscars will be.
      • Chiroptera Exsanguination
        Agreed. Wolf is the better film but Hustle is straight up award fodder.
  • Quynh Truong
    very well done this year.
  • Internet Reality
    12 Years strikes me as the kind of movie where it would be awkward if it didn't win.
  • Cal J.
    Fey and Poehler are comedy gold. Love Cate Blanchett and Amy Adams. Glad to see McConaghey win.
  • Chris Groves
    VERY happy that McConaughey and DiCaprio both won, I know this is only the Golden Globes and not quite on the level of the Oscars...but I'm really glad they've both taken home awards.
  • Rick
    Can someone explain to me the Musical/Comedy thing? None of those movies are musicals or comedies. That only one that comes remotely close to being a "musical" is Llewyn Davis.
    • Chiroptera Exsanguination
      It's ridiculous. I like that Leo threw a jab at it when accepting his award by recognizing his "fellow comedians. "
  • Dearsleazy
    I really hope Bono doesn't win the Oscar, I think that 'Let it go' should have won original song
