Golden Globes 2014 Recap
January 13, 2014
Awards season officially kicked off last night with the 71st annual Golden Globes. From hilarious jabs by hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, to major wins by American Hustle, it was definitely a night to remember. If you didn’t get the chance to watch - don’t worry! We’re recapping the winners and who ruled the red carpet right here on The F Drive.
Let’s start off with Jennifer Lawrence who arrived in typical Jen style when she crashed Taylor Swift’s interview with Ryan Seacrest. Her red carpet antics and Dior dress inspired a new Twitter trend - #Lawrencing. She received the first Golden Globe of the night for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy/Musical. Playing a needy housewife to perfection, she stole the stage in American Hustle. Kudos to her glam squad and stylist for the vampy makeup look and adorable pixie cut.
Amy Adams continued the American Hustle winning streak when she picked up the award for Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical. She channeled her 70s character and rocked a revealing red gown by Valentino. With an A-list cast including Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner, the crime comedy also won Best Motion Picture in its category.
Our favourite look of the night was Cate Blanchett’s. She looked fiercely elegant in a black lace and tulle Armani Privé gown. Her performance in the indie flick Blue Jasmine won her Best Actress in a Drama, where she was up against some of Hollywood’s best including Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench, Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet.
Dallas Buyers Club garnered big wins for Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actor and Matthew McConaughey for Best Actor in a Drama. McConaughey looked dapper in a velvet green suit jacket by Dolce & Gabbana and wooed the crowd when he opened his acceptance speech with a famous line from his movie Dazed and Confused – “Alright, alright, alright.” He thanked his stunning model wife Camila Alves, who also showed her love for Dolce & Gabbana with a dazzling long-sleeved sequined gown.
The next leading man worth mentioning is the one and only Leonardo DiCaprio, who took home the award for Best Actor. If you haven’t seen The Wolf of Wall Street, you’re missing out. His performance as a crooked stockbroker was provocative and powerful. This was perhaps the most deserving award of the night!
