Splitting the Difference: The Winners and Losers at the 2014 Golden Globes

There wasn't one big winner, a single film that swept the major categories, at the 2014 Golden Globes. The voters of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association split the difference, giving at least one award to most of the major films.

There wasn't one big winner, a single film that swept the major categories, at the 2014 Golden Globes. The voters of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association split the difference, giving at least one award to most of the major films. 

American Hustle netted three awards, including Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actress for Amy Adams, and Best Picture. Dallas Buyers Club earned two awards, earning statues for actors Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto. Spike Jonze took home a screenplay award for Her, Alfonso Cuarón won a directing award for Gravity, Leonardo DiCaprio won for The Wolf of Wall Street, Cate Blanchett won for Blue Jasmine, and 12 Years a Slave won for Best Motion Picture - Drama. Of the big films, only two were entirely left out of the loop: Nebraska and Inside Llewyn Davis. 

On the TV side, Behind the Candelabra won two awards: Michael Douglas beat out castmate Matt Damon for an acting award and the Liberace biopic also won Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Viewers were treated to the best cutaway of the night when three-time nominee Amy Poehler won an acting award for her work on Parks and Recreation. She was sitting in Bono's lap and getting a shoulder rub from the Irish singer when her name was called.

The evening's disruptors were Andy Samberg, who beat out Jason Bateman, Don Cheadle, Jim Parsons, and Michael J. Fox to win Best Actor in a Television Series — Comedy or Musical. His show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, also won Best Television Series — Comedy Or Musical. Another surprise win: Elisabeth Moss, who American viewers know as Peggy on Mad Men, won an acting award for the Sundance Channel miniseries Top of the Lake, which was directed by Jane Campion.

As for the best line in a thank-you speech, it goes to Cate Blanchett who thanked someone for plying her with vodka "the way Judy Garland was probably plied with barbiturates."
