Boyhood Wins Big at the Golden Globes
Director Richard Linklater's Boyhood was the toast of Hollywood at the Golden Globes on Sunday night after picking up three of the night's biggest honours.
Linklater claimed the Best Director prize, while the film was named Best Motion Picture, Drama and Patricia Arquette landed the Best Supporting Actress award for her portrayal of a single mother looking for love.
Boyhood has now become a clear favourite to pick up the Best Picture Oscar after taking home a string of top gongs this awards season.
The Theory of Everything and Birdman were double winners at the Globes, while The Affair, Transparent and Fargo led the TV categories with two awards apiece
It was also a very good night for newlyweds Eddie Redmayne, George Clooney and John Legend – Brit Redmayne picked up a Best Actor honour for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, John Legend was a winner for his song Glory from the movie Selma, and George Clooney took home the 2015 Cecil B DeMille Award.
Both Clooney and Redmayne paid tribute to their new brides in their acceptance speeches, with Redmayne revealing he and his wife "of about a couple of weeks" had to cut their honeymoon short to attend the prizegiving.
He added: "I thank the HFPA (Hollywood Foreign Press Association) for giving us a night at the end of our honeymoon we will remember."
