Greer Grammer named Miss Golden Globe

Greer Grammer will be this year’s Miss Golden Globe, the awards announced Thursday. The 22-year-old actress plays ditzy Lissa on MTV’s Awkward; she also appears in the upcoming film Life Partners, opposite Leighton Meester, Adam Brody, and Gillian Jacobs. And, as Miss and Mr. Golden Globe of years past, she also happens to be the child of a celebrity: as you may have guessed, Grammer’s father is three-time Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammer. (Her mother is makeup artist Barrie Buckner.)

Grammer joins a long line of past Golden Globe assistants including Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick; Sam Fox, son of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan; Rumer Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Several celebrity children who have held the position have gone on to become big-name actors in their own right, including Laura Dern, daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern; Melanie Griffith, daughter of Tippi Hedren; and Freddie Prinze Jr., son of Freddie Prinze.

Grammer will appear alongside returning hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at this year’s 72nd Annual Golden Globes, which air live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 11.

Save the date: 72nd Golden Globes set for January 11, 2015

Less than a month after Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globes for the second time, NBC has already announced the date for next year’s soiree, which will also be hosted by the funny female duo. The 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC live coast-to-coast Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, from 5-8 p.m. (PT) and 8-11 p.m. (ET) from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

“Not only do we have the privilege of announcing the date of the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, we are very appreciative of Tina and Amy for hosting the ceremony for a third year in a row,” said Theo Kingma, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “There is no doubt they will once again host a memorable Golden Globe Awards celebration!”

This year’s Golden Globes drew the biggest audience since 2004. Will Tina and Amy be able to top themselves with a hat trick?

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.”

Jared Leto wins Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes

Jared Leto took home his first Golden Globe earlier tonight, for Best Supporting Actor.

“I waxed my entire body,” Leto explained in his acceptance speech about his prep for the role in Dallas Buyers Club. “I’m just lucky it wasn’t a period piece so I didn’t have to do full Brazilian. …It’s more than an honor to come back and have this support. I never expected it and I never even dreamed of it.”

As a response to his role as a transgender woman, Leto concluded his speech saying, “To the Rayons of the world, thanks for your inspiration.”

Amy Adams wins Best Actress in a Comedy at Golden Globes

http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/i/2014/01/12/amy-adams-05_100x100.jpgAmy Adams won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical for her work in American Hustle. Earlier in the show, American Hustle co-star Jennifer Lawrence won for her work as well in David O. Russell’s film.

“David, you write such amazing roles for women,” Adams said in her speech. “Thanks for letting the world know that a princess can punch and wear an amazing dress.”

This is Adams’ fifth nomination and first win at the Globes.

Jennifer Lawrence backstage at the Golden Globes: 'I need to catch up on my drinking'

“You guys didn’t watch my speech did you?” Jennifer Lawrence cracked to a room of reporters backstage at the Golden Globes after winning the supporting actress prize for American Hustle.

We did watch her speech, which was just the latest example of the Hunger Games star’s charmingly awkward persona. But even when she’s feeling awkward, her career is anything but: This is her second year in a row winning a Golden Globe. So how will she celebrate?

“I need to catch up on my drinking,” she said. “I think that’s why I was so manic. Normally I have, like, a glass of wine. Um, that’s not a good answer…”

Taking home the first prize of the night was “really overwhelming” for Lawrence. “It’s kind of unbelievable, really, genuinely unbelievable. I can’t really process it. It’s such a huge honor. … You gotta interrupt me or I’ll just keep talking.”

A reporter did interrupt, asking why she chose American Hustle and the loopy role of Rosalyn, the complicated wife of Christian Bale’s Irving. “Before I even read the script, I knew I wanted to do it,” she said, noting that it gave her a chance to reunite with Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell. “Then I read the script, and I fell in love with Rosalyn. There was so much growth and so many ideas in there, and David and I were just on the phone constantly. She just kept evolving. She was just so exciting for me. She was just this character. I just loved her.”

Golden Globe Awards: And the winners are...

12 Years a Slave, nominated for seven Golden Globe Awards, narrowly avoided getting shut out when it took home the night’s final and biggest prize for Best Drama. Steve McQueen’s period slave drama looked to be out of favor with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, with Gravity‘s Alfonso Cuaron winning for Best Director, Her‘s Spike Jonze winning for Best Screenplay, and the Dallas Buyers Club duo of Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto winning the acting awards. But when Johnny Depp announced the big prize, 12 Years a Slave came out on top.

In the Comedy category, American Hustle won Best Picture, while Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence won acting trophies. Leonardo DiCaprio took home Best Actor in a Comedy for The Wolf of Wall Street, his second career Globe after winning for The Aviator in 2005.

In the television categories, Breaking Bad and Bryan Cranston were honored for the AMC show’s final season. The HFPA expressed a great fondness for Saturday Night Live, awarding Globes’ co-host Amy Poehler the award for Best Actress in a Comedy, Andy Samberg the prize for Best Actor, and his new show Brooklyn Nine-Nine the honor of Best Comedy.
