Golden Globes: What '12 Years a Slave' victory means for Oscar race -- ANALYSIS

12-Years-a-Slave.jpg

A kind of hopelessness had set in at the Golden Globe viewing party hosted by Fox on Sunday night. The mood only got worse and worse as the show went on. The overall sense going into the ceremony was that members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were not major fans of Fox Searchlight’s harrowing 12 Years a Slave. 

Still, there were a few chances … all of them lost. Almost.

Leonardo DiCaprio on Globe-winning 'Wolf of Wall Street' role: 'Thank God' I didn't become Jordan Belfort

Over his decades-long career in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio has had a reputation as a partier and a playboy…but he’s got nothing on Jordan Belfort, the debaucherous role he played in The Wolf of Wall Street. While he loved delving into the part — and even picked up a Golden Globe for his performance on Sunday — he was just as happy to leave Jordan behind.

“I stopped this film and it was like a giant adrenaline dump,” he told reporters backstage at the Beverly Hilton. “I haven’t been able to work since, really. It was a phenomenal experience. I suppose I’ve been doing this for a long period of time. Making movies is an interesting process. You put your entire life on hold. And these characters really do envelop you, for better or for worse. So, thank God none of the attributes of this character rubbed off on my real life, because I probably wouldn’t be standing here today.”

He’s also grateful to Wolf‘s director, the inimitable Martin Scorsese, and his young-at-heart vision. “I’m just thankful that Marty Scorsese is still as punk-rock, still as vital at 71 years old.”

'12 Years a Slave' wins Best Drama at the Golden Globes

12 Years a Slave walked away from the Golden Globes without any wins…except, of course, for that one very big win. The true-life slavery epic won Best Motion Picture, Drama on Sunday night, defeating its odds-on nemesis Gravity. Accepting the award with his cast and crew, 12 Years director Steve McQueen thanked pretty much everyone he could think of. When he ran out of names, 12 Years co-star Sarah Paulson threw out a few more ideas.

It remains to be seen how 12 Years’ Globes win affects the Oscar race going forward. Key competitors American Hustle and Gravity took home the Best Musical/Comedy and Best Director prizes, while star Chiwetel Ejiofor was surprise-trumped by Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club.

Matthew McConaughey wins Best Actor in a Drama at the Golden Globes

Matthew McConaughey staged a serious upset at the Golden Globes, triumphing over odds-on favorite Chiwetel Ejiofor and much-acclaimed opponents Tom Hanks and Robert Redford to win Best Actor in a Drama for his role in Dallas Buyers Club. The film now marks a new high point for McConaughey’s recent cinematic redemption: The actor shed many pounds (and the last vestige of his romcom glamour) to play Ron Woodroof, the good ol’ boy-turned-AIDS activist (and anti-government folk hero.)

Cate Blanchett wins Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama at the Golden Globes

It’s a hat trick for Cate Blanchett. Blanchett just took home her third Golden Globe — this one for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama — for her work in Blue Jasmine. She beat out Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench, Emma Thompson, and Kate Winslet.

In her acceptance speech, Blanchett kicked things off by mentioning the “few vodkas” she had “under her belt,” before thanking director Woody Allen and calling the Golden Globe awards the “heavy things that make your biceps look great.” Seconds later, when the wrap-it-up music started playing, Blanchett pondered, “Can people at home hear this music?” Either that …or they think celebrities are having a panic attack for no reason.

'American Hustle' wins Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes

Clearly, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves the ’70s. Not long after awarding the Best Miniseries or TV Movie statuette to HBO’s Behind the Candelabra, presenter Drew Barrymore revealed that another Me Decade period piece was going home with Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: David O. Russell’s American Hustle.

After almost accidentally thanking the Academy — whoops, wrong awards show! —  producer Charles Roven gave a heartfelt acceptance speech. “We had the privilege of telling this particular story about the art of survival, about resilience, and about reinvention,” he said. Groven also made special note of director and co-writer Russell, “whose love and passion for these flawed but indomitable characters is etched on every frame of the film.”

He finished by thanking the film’s “dream team” of actors, including Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence — both of whom won Globes for their performances in the film earlier tonight.

Leonardo DiCaprio wins Best Actor in a Comedy at the Golden Globes

It surprised even Leonardo DiCaprio that he won a Golden Globe in the comedy category, but yes, it happened: The actor took home his second career Globe for The Wolf of Wall Street. It was his tenth acting nomination. He previously won for 2005’s The Aviator.

 

Globes Behind the Scenes: What you WON'T see on television

All night EW reporters are on the scene at the Golden Globes —  in the ballroom, in the press room, on the red carpet and at the after parties — and we will be giving you inside dish on everything happening behind the scenes that you can’t see on TV. Check back often for updates as the night continues.

BEFORE THE SHOW
“Excuse me,” says the young woman in the striking red dress. Sarah Paulson, busy fixing her eyebrows in the bathroom mirror slowing turns her head to see her 12 Years a Slave co-star Lupita Nyong’o standing at the sink next to her. They may have played slave owner’s wife and slave on screen, but these two proved to be thick as thieves in the bathroom, where they began screaming like two young school girls when they saw each other.

DURING THE SHOW

Not every Hollywood star loves their time hobnobbing with other celebs. Spotted: actor Mark Ruffalo hiding in the corner behind the table dominated by press. The actor and activist with a healthy Twitter account was hiding on his phone. “I’ve got to admit I’m a little out of my body tonight,” he told EW. Paula Patton fixed that. Moments later Ruffalo was being chatted up by the vivacious actress Paula Patton, and was clearly entertained by her company.

In the smokers’ lounge: Kate Beckinsdale entertained a gaggle of ladies fawning over her dress. Elizabeth Moss kissed her Globe for a photo, and Joaquin Phoenix chatted up a journalist with a mouth full of crackers that he had carried in his pocket from the buffet table. He said he was considering  using the crackers in a bit should he get called up on stage for his work in Her, but he didn’t return to to the buffet to grab more. Instead he tipped the bartender $20 and wandered off with his director, Golden Globe original screenplay winner Spike Jonze.

Melissa McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone, plus Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, the cast of Modern Family all made a beeline for the exit before the Best Picture winner was announced.

Producer/fiancier Ryan Kavanaugh was holding hands all night with Minnie Driver. Beau Bridges walked out, thanking the security guards as he left.

Spirits were low at the 20th Century Fox/Fox Searchlight viewing party for the Golden Globes most of the night. 12 Years a Slave had lost in every category, and things looked bleak for the movie. When Johnny Depp came out to announce Best Drama, many who had worked on the film, or fought for months campaigning on its behalf, we’re only half-listening. Then, the ultimate shock: Depp read the envelope, and 12 Years a Slave had won. There was a moment, a gasp, had everyone heard that right? Then — pandemonium. It was impossible to hear any of director Steve McQueen’s speech over the cheers.

Meanwhile, the Fox TV network viewing party, with a Brooklyn loft theme under a tent on top of the Beverly Hilton parking garage, was very upbeat. Normally the studio wins awards but the network does not. Tonight there were screams of shock and delight for the Andy Samberg and Brooklyn Nine-Nine wins. EW asked Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly if he feels vindicated for his faith in Brooklyn, which was given a full-season order and a Super Bowl slot, despite the show’s low ratings. “It’s not vindication,” Reilly says. “I’m just really happy. It’s the right timing for a show on the rise. And it’s great when you love a group both personally and creatively.”
