72nd Annual Golden Globe Winners

By Vivien Pong

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards was full of surprises this year, with Richard Linklater‘s Boyhood taking home three awards. Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman grabbed two awards, one for Michael Keaton as Best Lead Actor in a Musical or Comedy. Julianne Moore nabbed a Best Lead Actress in a Drama for Still Alice. One of the biggest upsets was the highly praised thriller Gone Girl, directed by David Fincher. Lead actress Rosamund Pike’s performance was given stunning reviews and the film was predicted to win a number of awards. Sadly, Gone Girl walked away empty handed. On the brighter side, history was made with Gina Rodriguez from the CW’s Jane the Virgin winning best actress in a TV Series (Comedy). It was the first nomination for the CW, therefore, its first win. TV drama The Affair did surprisingly well, taking home Best Actress in a TV Series, (Drama) for Ruth Wilson, as well as Best TV Series, Drama. See below for the full list of winners.
