Underdogs Dominate Golden Globes 2015


golden globe awards 2015It wasn’t a day for heavyweights nor for A-List actors. In the Golden Globes 2015, Boyhood and The Affair won top honors for drama while The Grand Budapest Hotel and Transparent took the trophy as their comedy counterparts.

While I was expecting either Steve Carell or Benedict Cumberbatch to get the best actor award for movie drama, it was unexpectedly taken by Eddie Redmayne from The Theory of Everything.  For best actress in a movie drama, Julianne Moore wins while Amy Adams wins best actress for comedy, beating veterans Julianne Moore and Helen Mirren.  Patricia Arquette winning supporting actress over Meryl Streep, Keira Knightley, Emma Stone, and Jessica Chastain was another shocker.  And just as shocking was the supporting actor going to J.K. Simmons for Whiplash, overtaking the big wigs like Robert Duvall, Edward Norton, Ethan Hawke, and Mark Ruffalo.

Matt Bomer was not a surprise for best supporting actor for The Normal Heart.  I do admit he played the only gay role I was attracted to (absolutely hot!!).  It wouldn’t be fair to say it was similar to Jared Leto in Dallas Buyer’s Club.  I cried when Jared Leto died in the movie, but I did not have the same urge to cradle him in my arms as I did Matt Bomer when he was dying.  Matt Bomer is absolutely the most beautiful person I have ever seen :-).  Anyway, here is the full list of winners.
