A Recap of the Golden Globes 2014

6092ae492552d664b924123652eb0543b13032bcThe 2014 Golden Globes have come and gone. Awards were handed out (quite a few we didn’t agree with), jokes were shared that had us cackling, and speeches were made that were absolutely ridiculous and heartwarming.

One movie we were glad to see win was the British-American epic historical drama film ‘12 Years a Slave’, which took home the coveted award for ‘Best Motion Picture‘. The movie received seven nominations along with ‘American Hustle’.

Ironically, Chiwetel Ejiofor (who plays the protagonist Solomon Northup in the movie) lost out in the two categories he was nominated. Ejiofor was up for ’Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture‘ but lost to actor Matthew McConaughey for his role in ‘Dallas Buyers Club‘.

Ejiofor also lost in the category of ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television’. He was nominated for his role in 2013 TV series ‘Dancing on the Edge’, but lost to Michael Douglas for his role in ‘Behind the Candelabra’.

Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o who also starred ’12 Years of a Slave‘ also lost the award for ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture‘ to Jennifer Lawrence who starred in ‘American Hustle‘.

    Are you surprised though that Ejiofor and the Kenyan lady didn’t win? And yet you’re hoping Ejiofor will perhaps win an Oscar for his role in ’12 years a slave’. That will be a great feat for him if that happens.

    • Wallai. It doesn’t look good for him at all. When the winning streak didn’t start with the Golden Globes, it’s kinda hard to pick it up at the Oscars.

        Well, I understand that ‘Best Drama’ is the top and most coveted award for the Golden Globes. ’12 years a slave’ got 7 nominations but won one, the most coveted one. Ben Affleck’s ‘Argo’ won last year but didn’t go on to win at the Oscars. I think there just might still be a teeny-weeny chance for ’12years a slave’ and Ejiofor by extension. We’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed then. Yes you can, Ejiofor and by His grace, you will. LOL!

      • Hehehee! I admire your faith. But Matthew McConaughey appears to be an awards favourite this year.
