As expected, the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony was a star-studded display of gratitude and talent. The special honored the year’s best films and television shows, and most memorable performances.

The big winner for Best Motion Picture - Drama was “12 Years a Slave.” “American Hustle,” or “Explosion at the Wig Factory,” as Tina Fey affectionately joked, took home the award for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

With a year of incredible film, none of the nominees would have been a surprise. Matthew McConaughey, and Jared Leto both won for their performances in “Dallas Buyers Club.” Cate Blanchett and Amy Adams took home the “Best Actress” categories for “Blue Jasmine” and “American Hustle.” 

Leonardo DiCaprio paid tribute to a fellow nominee and offered some advice to young actors when he accepted his award for “The Wolf of Wall Street,” noting that if anyone wanted to take a look at an impressive Hollywood career, then they should study the many wonderful performances of Bruce Dern, who was recognized for his work in “Nebraska.”

“Inside Llewyn Davis” was shown no love by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assocation, as it won none of its three categories. “August: Osage County” didn’t win any of its categories either.

In terms of television, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” swept its competition, winning for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical. Andy Samberg also won his category for the show. Accompanying him was Amy Poehler, who won for playing Leslie Knope on “Parks and Recreation.” Despite having been nominated a few times, this is the first time she won the category—which she then celebrated by making out with Bono. (And it’s only a matter of time until that’s on YouTube.)

Other television winners include “Breaking Bad” and Bryan Cranston, and Jon Voight for “Ray Donovan.” 

The night went smoothly, despite many ill-prepared actors and fumbled speeches. See below for a complete list of television and film winners.
