The 72nd Golden Globes was a fun night to say the least. These awards have always been associated with biting humour, celebrity bashing and a lot of alcohol. But all in all, these awards sometimes work as spoilers for the Oscars as many of the winners are usually the same. So without taking much of your time, here’s the list of the big winners from the Golden Globes 2015!
Filmed over a period of 12 years with the same star cast, this experimental movie has been the ‘biggest leap of faith in film history‘ according to the director Richard Linklater. Boyhood is truly a one-of-a-kind experience and it shouldn’t be missed by cinema lovers.
He played the great Stephen Hawking, he’d have to win don’t you think? Eddie very sweetly thanked his wife and fanboy-ed over Robert Duvall. Who wouldn’t fanboy over the man who played Tom Hagen in the Godfather series?
Will this better her chances of winning her first Oscar…let’s wait and watch!
Finally! Wes Anderson took home some silverware (or Golden-ware)!
Essaying the role of a washed-up Hollywood actor, known for playing iconic superhero Birdman, trying to reinvent his career by directing and starring in a Broadway play; Michael Keaton (who was the original Batman) was basically portraying himself. He did a great great job and that’s what got him the prize.
She does have big eyes. But according to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, so does Emma Stone!
He took 12 years to make this one, if he didn’t win this one, there would have been violence!
Beating Meryl Streep is a biggie and Patricia did just that. She also gave one of the best quotes of the evening, after hugging Streep, she thanked the star:
For giving me a hug, I hope your DNA transferred to me.
He beat Edward Norton so I’m a little sad.
This Showtime drama beat shows like House Of Cards and Game Of Thrones! That is a big deal.
After winning, he said
This is just the beginning of my revenge.
Did you expect anything less from Frank Underwood?
She also played Jane Eyre in the BBC mini-series and I loved her ever since!
This Amazon drama based on the sensitive topic of transgenders was pegged as a favourite since the start!
Jeffrey gave a very touching speech, thanking the transgender community for supporting him in such a difficult role.
Gina is the first CW network actress to win a Golden Globe and her touching speech talking about her Latino heritage and her upbringing touched a lot of hearts!
Thank you to my mom and my dad for telling me to dream big and to never stop dreaming. To my siblings, to my sisters Evelise and Rebecca for being the biggest role models in my life. This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes. My father used to tell me to say every morning, ‘Today’s going to be a great day. I can and I will.’ Well, Dad, today’s going to be a great day. I can and I did.
You go girl!
Inspired by the 1996 movie of the same name, this dark comedy has been a critical success since day 1. It did face tough competition from the Matthew Mcconaughey and Woody Harrelson show True Detective, but I guess the votes preferred the adventures of Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman.
He beat Matthew Mcconaughey’s portrayal of Rust Cohle, that is a BIG deal!

Maggie Gyllenhaal is an excellent actress, no surprise she’d win this one!
Her powerful performance as a rape survivor in Downton Abbey made her a favourite in this category!

Amal, whatever alchemy it is that brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your husband.
