Last night the golden globes saw a plethora of nominations and awards that included British actors and directors such as Steve McQueen and Michelle Dockery. It was the 71st Golden Globes award ceremony and was held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. The usual array of photographers stood capturing the stars as they swept down the flooded red carpet.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the awards given out at last night’s ceremony.
While most awards went to American Hustle, the British film “12 Years a Slave” won Best Film Drama and was directed by Steve McQueen. Even David Cameron got in on the action to support the British contingent and Tweeted ”Congratulations to everyone involved with the British film “12 Years a Slave” -which did so well at the #GoldenGlobes”.
Leonardo DiCaprio won best actor in a musical or comedy and shouted the praises of Martin Scorsese whom directed The Wolf of Wall Street. Personally I think the film should have won more than it did.
Breaking bad won best TV drama as expected.
Matthew McConaughey won Best Actor in a Drama for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.
Amongst the British attendees were director Steve McQueen, Michelle Dockery from Downton Abbey and Emma Watson from Harry Potter. British stars missing out on an award include Helen Mirren, Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet. Jacqueline Bisset was the only British person to win an award – she won best supporting actress in a TV series, mini-series or TV movie – for her part in BBC drama Dancing on the Edge.
Alfonso Cuaron picked up Best Director for the film “Gravity” starring Sandra Bullock.
The Liberace biopic won an award. Michael Douglas also won an award depicting Liberace, a role which he played exceptionally well.
