It was a big night for American Hustle and 12 Years A Slave at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards Sunday night at The Beverly Hilton. Also, Dallas Buyers Club‘s Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both won big awards last night, putting all of these movies front and center for Oscar nominations this week.
There were so many wonderful moments starting with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who kicked off the night cracking jokes about all the A-list nominees in the house. They got big laughs with their joke about George Clooney, quipping “Gravity is nominated for Best Film…it’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away in space and die than spend one more minute with a woman of his own age. ”
The night kicked off with American Hustle actress Jennifer Lawrence winning the award for Best Supporting Actress. Then McConaughey and Leto both took home big awards for their roles in Dallas Buyers Club for Best Actor in a Drama and Best Supporting Actor.
Then it was Leonardo DiCaprio’s turn, who won Best Actor in a Comedy for the Wolf of Wall Street. Third time’s a charm for host Amy Poehler, who took home her own Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy for Parks and Recreation.
The most talked about moment of the night went to actress Jacqueline Bissett for her awkward acceptance speech. First she had trouble finding the stage, then she had trouble finding the words to say for her speech. However, the words that finally sprang to mind were wrong for the TV censors. Take a listen to her awkward speech below.
