The 72nd Golden Globes was Full of Surprises

When Richard Linklater's Boyhood arrived in theaters many months ago, many critics suspected that the film could walk away with a bunch of awards this year and if tonight's winnings at the 72nd Golden Globes are any indication, that suspicion could come true. The movie was nominated for five awards and won three including Best Motion Picture. Other than that, the rest of the night was full of surprises.

Shown live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel and hosted once again by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (who both swear that this will be their last time to host), were fantastic as usual. The Grand Budapest Hotel won for Best Motion Picture: Comedy or Musical (for some reason), and The Theory of Everything and Birdman both won two awards each. How to Train Your Dragon 2 actually beat out Disney for Best Animated Film and the only musical, Annie, did not for Best Original Song. That tribute went to Selma for John Legend's song "Glory."
