And the Golden Globe goes to…

Golden+Globes+statuesHere is your list of winners from last night’s Golden Globe ceremony. All in all, what surprised me the most was the lack of a singular winner of the evening. With Cuaron winning for best direction in Gravity, Spike Jonze winning for screenplay with Her, American Hustle picking up two acting awards on the women’s side, Dallas Buyers Club picking up two on the men’s, Leo winning for best actor in a comedy (nice speech by the way), and then the big prize going to 12 Years of Slave for best film, Drama, one can easily state that 2013 was a year of several excellent pieces of film making and acting. It was refreshing. That said, and I must admit I have not seen Dallas Buyers Club yet (though I intend to before I make any best of 2013 list for film), but for Chiwetel Ejiofor to not win best actor drama seems somewhat of a crime. I am a jaded jaded movie-goer. I hardly ever cry at dramas anymore, and my god I had tears flowing down my cheeks at the end of 12 Years a Slave. It will be very interesting to see how the Oscars separate themselves from The Globes this year.

On the television side, how awesome is it that Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Andy Samberg won on their first year as a show. I can honestly say that it is the only new sitcom this year that I watch, and it is absolutely hilarious. Samberg’s acceptance speech? Priceless. On the best drama front, Breaking Bad took home the award, but that is no surprise. It was a very nice swan song to a show that had its final season just a few short months ago. I am a little saddened by the lack of wins for House of Cards, but with season 2 approaching and no Breaking Bad for competition, maybe Netflix can take home a few more wins and show the world that the streaming model of television viewing is the future.
