Michael Keaton wins best comedy actor for ‘Birdman’. Eddie Redmayne wins best actor in drama for the ‘The Theory of Everything’. Julianne Moore wins best actress in drama for ‘Still Alice’. Amy Adams wins best actress in comedy for ‘Big Eyes’. ‘Fargo’, ‘The Affair’ and ‘Transparent’ win big in the TV or mini series category.
The Golden Globes kickstarted the awards season in Hollywood on Monday morning IST. The Globes have traditionally recognised films and TV series popular with the audiences. But this year it seems to have turned things around, picking several of the critics favourites. Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman and Richard Linklater’s Boyhood had lead nominations in the films category while House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin were favourites in the TV and miniseries category. In the film category, the big winners of the night were predictably, Birdman and Boyhood. Birdman won best screenplay as well as best actor (Michael Keaton) and best film in the comedy or musical category. Boyhood won top honours with Richard Linklater winning best director, best supporting actress and the film winning in the drama category. The Theory of Everything star Eddie Redmayne won best actor in the drama category, while Julianne Moore won best actress for Still Alice. Amy Adams won best actress in comedy for her film Big Eyes. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel won best film in the comedy category, an award that many thought would go to Birdman.
The TV and mini series category saw several upsets this year. Fargo and The Affair got much love, while True Detective didn’t win any awards. Showtime’s The Affair won best show and best actress for Ruth Wilson in the drama category while Fargo won best mini-series and best actor for Billy Bob Thornton.
While the Golden Globes usually promise a lot of entertaintainment, this year’s show was more sombre with several stars showing support for the victims of the Paris attacks. George Clooney, Kathy Bates and Helen Mirren sported ‘Je Suis Charlie’ buttons. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made fun of the Sony attacks, joking that North Korea’s condemnation of The Interview wasn’t even the worst review the movie got. The president of Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Theo Kingma urged for the protection of freedom of speech. “The freedom of artistic expression is a beacon across the globe. We stand united everywhere from North Korea to Paris,” he said.

Show business satire Birdman leads the Golden Globe Awards film nominations with seven nods including Best Film- Comedy, Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Actor- Comedy. Birdman will be front-runner this awards season in Hollywood. It is closely followed by Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, which earned five nominations and was made over a period of 12 years. Martin Luther King Junior biopic Selma is nominated in four categories including best director for Ava DuVernay, the first black woman to be nominated in that Golden Globe category.
