0404 – That’s it from the live Only Oscar coverage of the Golden Globes. Check here for a round up of the winners and further analysis.
0357 – Well somehow they pulled it out of the bag. 12 Years a Slave has bagged best film, but after the snubbing throughout the evening it’s hard to see how. I guess the voters deemed the sum greater than its parts, but it is baffling how a film can win the biggest award without winning a single other.
0356 – Here’s the big moment, and with 12 Years a Slave now snubbed this could go either way.
0351 – That’s now 2 for Dallas Buyers Club and shockingly 0 for 12 Years a Slave. Can it really win Best Film without winning any other award? Johnny Depp is due on stage imminently to reveal the winner. If the current results are anything to go by it should be American Hustle, but that would be huge. Remember last year? Argo‘s success put it ahead of Lincoln and it never looked back.
0348 – Jessica Chastain now presenting Best Actor, Drama. WOW WOW WOW. Matthew McConaughey wins for Dallas Buyers Club! Biggest shock of the entire night!
0347 – With a Golden Globe win on top of the snowballing hype and a big awards campaign, Blanchett and Alfonso Cuaron must now be feeling much more confident as they enter the home straight for the Oscars. Surely it’s their’s to lose now?
0345 – Leo now on stage announcing Best Actress, Drama. It is, of course, Cate Blanchett for Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. If you didn’t catch this film you must, just for her sublimely nuanced performance. Excellent and very well deserved.
0340 – Only actor and actress for drama and best film, drama left to go. These are, however, quite predictable unless there is a major upset. Should be Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor and 12 Years a Slave. Whatever happens, American Hustle will have won more than any other film tonight, unless Sandra Bullock beats Blanchett and Gravity wins. This is very unlikely though.
0338 – No surprise here, BEST COMEDY/MUSICAL – AMERICAN HUSTLE. That’s three Golden Globes now – supporting actress, comedy/musical actress and best comedy/musical. Definitely the big winners of the evening.
0337 – Enter Drew Barrymore wearing what appears to be a shower curtain. She is announcing Best Comedy/Musical.
0336 – Now here’s more like it. Chris Hemsworth is joined on stage by Niki Lauder to introduce Best Drama nominee Rush.
0330 – With such a huge cast it makes perfect sense that Reese Witherspoon, the only actress in the world not to feature in 12 Years a Slave, is invited to introduce it as a Best Drama nominee.
0327 – And the winner is LEONARDO DICAPRIO, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET – BEST ACTOR, COMEDY/MUSICAL. Great result for a deserving actor and a tribute to a long term collaboration between DiCaprio and Scorsese. It has produced his best work, and one hopes one day this will also translate into Academy Awards, but not this year sadly.
0326 – Earlier winner Jennifer Lawrence is now presenting Best Actor, Comedy/Musical. Could this be Leo’s chance to win something?
0318 – That’s the first and possibly only award of the night for Gravity. Reaffirms the general suspicion that Cuaron will win the Academy Award for directing, and almost certainly Visual Effects, basically repeating Ang Lee’s achievements last year for Life of Pi.
0318 – BEST DIRECTOR: ALFONSO CUARON, GRAVITY
0317 – Ooh here we go, it’s Best Director time, announced by last year’s winner Ben Affleck.
0316 – Liam Neeson now inexplicably introducing Gravity. Sandra Bullock is there, why can’t she do it?!
0307 – Diane Keaton is now on stage following a lovely video tribute. Doesn’t look like he’s here, which is at least consistent. He is one of the few filmmakers who can get away with never attending these things and still win countless awards. That’s how good he is, so don’t get any ideas.
0303 – It’s time for the Cecile B. DeMille award, this year given to Woody Allen. Emma Stone is introducing his highlights, but is he even here tonight?
0255 – They have Colin Farrell introducing Inside Llewyn Davis. I don’t understand why they do this, because surely they can find someone directly involved in the films being introduced?
0253 – Emma Watson and Chris Pine announcing Animated Feature. Predictably it is Frozen, one of the few awards we could all predict with confidence this year!
0246 – Michael Douglas wins for Behind the Candelabra which is further evidence that this film should have been allowed to compete for Oscars!
0244 – Melissa McCarthy pretending to be Matt Damon. One of the highlights of the night.
0241 – Orlando Bloom and Zoe Saldana announcing Foreign Language Film. Award goes to The Great Beauty. This is really has been tough to predict tonight with some very funny results. Blue is the Warmest Colour was seen as the favorite.
0231 – Laura Dern now brought on to introduce Nebraska, starring her Father Bruce Dern, as a nominee for Best Comedy/Musical. Looks like a great film but with such a limited release in the UK a lot of people this side of the pond have not had the chance to see it. Such a shame.
0228 – Emma Thompson now introducing nominees for Best Screenplay. She’s been drinking. Still is. Golden Globe goes to Spike Jonze for Her. Blimey, what a night. Six awards to five different films. Everyone said it was a competitive field this year, and it’s starting to show.
0225 – 12 Years a Slave have lost out on two awards that they had a decent chance of winning. Still nothing this evening. It may not be indicative of the big awards, because there isn’t really a challenger for best film, but if it carries on like this there will be question marks over why exactly it wins Best Film if nothing else. Director could go to Cuaron, and actress will go to Blanchett.
0221 – Christoph Walts announcing Supporting Actor. And the winner is… Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club. It was always between him and Fassbender, but this could be the only Oscar they have a big chance of winning, so they probably wanted this more.
0220 – Jim Carey introduces American Hustle as Best Musical/Comedy nominee. Has a dig at Shia LeBeouf too. Starting to warm to Jim, and he’s making a bit of a comeback recently. Is it controversial to suggest he could win an Oscar still if he just does the right role?
0215 – Kevin Bacon’s daughter wins Miss Golden Globe. Tina Fey brings her small illegitimate son Randy (Amy Poehler) in as Mr. Golden Globe. About time they mocked this. Well done.
0210 – Amy Adams was interrupted by the music while giving her speech. She wasn’t as assertive as Bisset so it turned into a bit of argument between her and the music. Awkward. But on a serious note we cannot underestimate the significance of this award for Amy Adams and American Hustle. Could she sneak into the Best Actress nominees at the Oscars? And is American Hustle winning a lot more favor than we realized?
0207 – Here’s Robert Downey Jr. cracking jokes before announcing the nominees for Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical. And the winner is Amy Adams for American Hustle. That’s a big result for them. 2 Globes now, and beating Meryl Streep. Huge.
0206 – Olivia Wilde is roped in to introduce Her as a nominee for Best Comedy or Musical. Joaquin Pheonix is getting a lot of praise for his lead role in this, while Scarlett Johannson is turning a lot of heads by dividing opinion on her voice only performance. She was ruled ineligible for Golden Globes, is this fair?
0201 – So what do you think of all the results so far? Breaking Bad is the big winner from TV so far, but that’s perhaps nothing less than expected. American Hustle, All Is Lost and Mandela all have one win each. Based on these results the Globes could be very shared tonight.
0154 – The award goes to U2 for Ordinary Love, original song for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Wow. That’s gonna shake things up for the Oscars. The speech was pretty bumbly, Bono didn’t really know where to go once he started. Oops. Ended up just saying thank you and leaving. Don’t worry, we all noticed.
0153 – Now time for original song. Frozen is the big favorite here, but U2 stand a pretty good chance too.
0151 – And the award goes to All Is Lost. Bit of a surprise, but it was a pretty open category. Not the best speech though, where’s the music?
0150 – Usher et al presenting the award for Best Score in a film. It should be The Book Thief but it won’t be.
0148 – What a lovely touch. Steve Coogan enters stage with the real Philomena Lee to introduce Philomena as a nominee for Best Drama Picture. Wonderful idea, and who better to give weight to the film’s gravitas than the person it was based on?
0139 – Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey nominated for best actor in a drama series, but the award predictably goes to Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad.
0136 – Jonah Hill and someone else on stage, and the teleprompter messed up so they had to give them a paper script. They’re introducing The Wolf of Wall Street as a nominee for best Comedy or Musical Film. It’s getting a lot of cheers and laughs, and it does make sense for it to be introduced by someone from the film.
0135 – President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is making a speech. At least he acknowledges how little everyone cares about it.
0129 – Matt Damon just entered the stage to introduce Captain Phillips, one of the Best Drama nominees this evening. It won’t win. Good film, but just not as strong as the other nominees.
0128 – They’re just going through all the TV awards at the moment. Elisabeth Moss just picked up an award for Best Actress. If you’re stumbling upon here we are just updating the motion picture results, but you can catch up on all the TV winners on the Golden Globes website.
0123 – Best Mini Series or TV Movie is up, and it’s Behind the Candelabra. Very well deserved! Fantastic film, and a shame on the Academy that they won’t consider it just because HBO premiered it on cable. Well done on the win!
0118 – Jacqueline Bisset proves that if you just keep talking they can’t do an awful lot about it. Just shout HOWEVER and carry on, they’ll stop the music.
0114 – So its Jennifer Lawrence that scoops supporting actress a year after winning Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook. The Oscars will be a close fought contest, but she is Hollywood’s darling at the moment, so this may be a sign of things to come. Though she is wonderful in American Hustle it can be argued she was nothing compared to her competition in 12 Years a Slave. Still, what do you think?
0112 – BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: JENNIFER LAWRENCE. Is this deserved considering the immense performance from Lupita Nyong’O?
0110 – Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks open the proceedings by presenting Supporting Actress. Nominees
0107 – Great opening speech! George Clooney gag brought the house down, but there are lots and lots and lots and lots of namechecks. On the whole a pretty strong opening for their second outing.
0100 – Here we go! Bring on Amy and Tina!
0056 – Nearly 1am here in the UK. Coffee stocks replenished and we’re ready to go!
0048 – Almost Golden Globes time! US viewers switch on to NBC, and UK viewers with Sky or Virgin need E!
0043 – Poor Matt Damon and Behind the Candelabra – very much deserves Oscar recognition. Silly rules.
0037 – Julia Roberts talking about August: Osage County, for which she is nominated. The film was her biggest project, continues to challenge herself, you know the story by now. Oh, and she’s wearing D&G. OMFG.
0035 – Tom Hanks has arrived! Nominated for Captain Phillips. “It’s wise always to have something in your head in case someone sticks a microphone in your face” – Hanks on preparing acceptance speeches.
0034 – “I was intimidate. I have never seen a story like this before. I surprised that Steve [McQueen] had asked me” says Chiwetel Ejiofor, campaigning like a pro.
0031 – “It’s all good teasing and good fun, we don’t want anyone’s feelings hurt” – Amy & Tina have been taking advice from Gervais then?
0029 – Emma Thompson dressed in gold. Too late for subliminal messaging. Surprise surprise she talks about what a shock it is to get all the attention for Saving Mr. Banks. I have been calling that since January, so it’s not really that shocking, is it?
0027 – Supporting Actress will be a close race. Jennifer Lawrence is a Hollywood favorite at the moment, but Lupita Nyong’o put in such a stellar performance in 12 Years a Slave, she deserves it really.
0024 – Only 36 minutes to go. Time to get your final predictions in! Surely this is 12 Years a Slave‘s night?
0020 – “I’m just proud that a film like this got made in the first place” – Leonardo on The Wolf of Wall Street. See below updates.
0016 – Jennifer Lawrence is here. Nominated for Supporting Actress. Bigging up Amy Adams. See below update.
0010 – Sandra Bullock on presenting an award – “I’d rather kick back and honour someone else”. Modesty the key to a successful awards campaign.
0008 – Woody Allen is being given the Cecil B. DeMille award, but will he show?
0005 – Michael Douglas talking about Behind the Candelabra. Certainly the most unfortunate exclusion of the year from the Academy, so hopefully it gets what it deserves tonight. Perhaps with films like this given cable premieres and the boom in VoD content, the Academy should rethink its eligibility criteria?
0003 – Sprinkler malfunction almost ruined the red carpet – http://variety.com/2014/scene/awards/golden-globes-sprinkler-accident-drenches-red-carpet-1201050072/
2358 – Lots of people turning up in other people’s dresses. Somebody call the authorities.
2353 – Someone from Downton Abbey says she started getting ready at 9am (5pm GMT). Mental.
2350 – Chiwetel Ejiofor was as modest as ever on the red carpet. Spoke to NBC about how amazing it is to be involved in the film, all the standard campaign spiel. He is the clear favorite to win Best Actor this evening, and expected to pick up the Oscar too. Is there likely to be an upset?
2346 – Leo and Jonah have both arrived. The Wolf of Wall Street has been battling criticism over its excessive use of violence, but it has been gaining more and more momentum since its release. Leonardo DiCaprio is nominated for Best Actor, but with only 5 spaces to fight for, can he translate this into an Oscar nomination?
2341 – the stars are heading out onto the red carpet. The real Philomena and her daughter have arrived too!
