American Hustle cemented its place as an awards season front-runner at the 71th annual Golden Globes Sunday night by picking up a trio of major honours, including one of the night’s two best film awards.
The David O. Russell-directed crime caper saga, inspired by the Abscam scandal, won best musical or comedy film as well as two actor categories for Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence at the annual celebration of film and television.
“One of the benefits of the motion picture business is that we get to make films about people … We had the privilege of telling this particular story about the art of survival, about resilience and reinvention,” said producer Charles Roven, who thanked his “dream team of actors” that also included Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner.
Lawrence picked up the first award of the evening, earning the best supporting actress in a film trophy for her performance. About an hour later, her co-star Amy Adams took the prize for best actress in a musical or comedy.
One of top nominees at the start of the evening, the searing 12 Years a Slave, left with just one trophy, albeit a significant one heading into the Oscars: best dramatic film.
For the 71st annual Golden Globes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association shared the love by spreading out trophies to a wide swath of winners, making for what appeared — to viewers anyway — a convivial evening of Hollywood celebration. Here are 5 memorable tidbits from Sunday night’s broadcast.
