Deets: On Sunday, January 11, 2015, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announc
ed the winners of the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the star-studded event for the third time on NBC at the Beverly Hilton.

In the first department Boyhood led the pack with three wins: Best Drama, Best Director for Richard Linklater and Best Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette. Another favorite, Birdman took the awards for Best Screenplay and Best Actor for Michael Keaton and his tour-de-force lead performance as washed up actor Riggan Thompson. In somewhat of an upset it could not, however, best Wes Anderson’s whimsical The Grand Budapest Hotel which was named Best Comedy or Musical.

In the other acting categories it was a golden night for Eddie Redmayne, a winner as Best Actor Drama for his characterization of Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything (the film also won for Best Musical Score). Return nominee Amy Adams won the Globe for Best Actress Comedy or Musical for Big Eyes and J.K. Simmons won his first Globe for portraying a fierce music teacher in Whiplash. How To Train Your Dragon 2 was the winner in the animation category while Leviathan was named Best Foreign Film of 2015. Best Original Song went to Selma’s Glory by John Legend and Common.

The 72nd Globe proved historic for newcomer Amazon Studios that scored two Globes for Transparent (Best Comedy Series and Jeffrey Tambor for lead actor). FX’s Fargo also scored big with wins as Best Miniseries and for Best Supporting Actor (Billy Bob Thornton). Another double winner was Showtime’s newcomer The Affair that won Best Drama Series and for Ruth Wilson as Best Actress – Drama. Kevin Spacey won for his portrayal of ruthless VP (and now president elect) Francis Underwood in Netflix’s House of Cards. One of the most emotional speeches was delivered by newcomer Gina Rodriguez for her win as Best Comedy Actress in the breakout series Jane The Virgin. Wins for Best Drama Actress (Maggie Gyllenhall in The Honourable Woman) and Supporting Actor in The Normal Hearti> (Matt Bomer) and Downton Abbey (Joan Froggatt) rounded out the field.
