Golden Globes: 'American Hustle' leads, 'Breaking Bad' wins for top TV drama
Well, that was fun. You could say a lot of things about the validity or relevance of the Golden Globes, but the one thing you can't deny is that they're a rollicking party compared to certain other awards shows (cough-the Oscars-cough). And Sunday night's 71st annual Globes didn't dissapoint. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned as hosts (certainly the smartest programming choice NBC has made in years) after killing it at last year's ceremony. Their opening was one of the better awards show openings we've seen, masterfully toeing the line between poking fun and offending the celebs in the audience.
As far as awards go, there wasn't really a clear winner. American Hustle led on the movie side with three wins, for best actress (Amy Adams), best supporting actresss (Jennifer Lawrence) and best picture, musical or comedy. And despite having seven nominations (tied with Hustle), Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave won just one award, albeit an important one, for best picture for a drama. Breaking Bad won for best TV drama and also for its lead, Bryan Cranston. And, somewhat baffling, Brooklyn Nine-Nine did the same on the comedy side. But hey, at least Amy Poehler finally won something!
