Scroll down to check out the full list of Golden Globes 2014 winners. This year's Golden Globes ceremony took place earlier this evening, January 12, with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey back as hosts. (Here are our fearless – and somewhat accurate – Golden Globes 2014 Predictions and our equally fearless – and mostly accurate – 2014 Golden Globes Predictions - The Nominations.)
The 2014 Golden Globe nominations were announced by Aziz Ansari, Zoe Saldana, and Olivia Wilde exactly one month ago. Among the surprises was the inclusion in the Best Picture - Drama category of Ron Howard's domestic box office disappointment Rush, starring Chris Hemsworth and Best Supporting Golden Globe nominee Daniel Brühl, and the exclusion of The Wolf of Wall Street's Martin Scorsese from the Best Director roster.
Also, Julie Delpy and Greta Gerwig were both in the running in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical category for, respectively, Richard Linklater's Before Midnight and Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha. Neither film was a box office hit and neither actress could be considered a “film star”; taking into account the Golden Globe's past history, more likely candidates would have been Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy for the summer hit The Heat.
Needless to say, Rush, Delpy, and Gerwig went home empty-handed. And so did Scorsese, who was present at the ceremony.
Golden Globes 2014: Woody Allen gets Cecil B. DeMille Award
In addition to the Golden Globes 2014 nominees listed below, Blue Jasmine director Woody Allen was the recipient of the 2014 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Diane Keaton, Allen's frequent collaborator in the '70s (e.g., Sleeper, Love and Death, Annie Hall, Interiors, and Manhattan, plus 1993 entry Manhattan Murder Mystery) was Allen's proxy.
Woody Allen's film career has lasted nearly half a century. Besides the aforementioned titles featuring Diane Keaton, Allen's credits as a director and/or screenwriter and/or actor include What's New Pussycat (1965), starring the recently deceased Peter O'Toole; Bananas (1971), with Allen's by then ex-wife Louise Lasser; Stardust Memories (1980), also featuring Charlotte Rampling, Jessica Harper, and Marie-Christine Barrault; the Mia Farrow Movies (e.g., Zelig, Broadway Danny Rose, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Another Woman, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Alice, Husbands and Wives); Bullets Over Broadway (1994), with John Cusack and Dianne Wiest; the Scarlett Johansson Movies (Scoop, Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona); and, more recently, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010), with Naomi Watts; Midnight in Paris (2011), with Owen Wilson; and To Rome with Love (2012), with Penélope Cruz.
