‘American Hustle’ nets actor awards, ‘12 Years a Slave’ takes best drama

Shut out all night at the Golden Globes, the historical drama “12 Years a Slave” eked out the night’s top honor, best film drama, while the con-artist caper “American Hustle” landed a leading three awards, including best film comedy.

David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” had the better night overall, winning acting awards for Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence. Best picture was the only award for “12 Years a Slave,” which came in with seven nominations, tied for the most with “American Hustle.”

Awards were otherwise spread around.

Matthew McConaughey took best actor in a drama for his performance in the Texas HIV drama “Dallas Buyers Club.” Leonardo DiCaprio, a nine-time Golden Globe nominee, won his second Globe for best actor in a comedy for his work in “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Alfonso Cuaron won best director for the space odyssey “Gravity,” a worldwide hit and critical favorite.

The night’s biggest winners may have been hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, whose second time hosting the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Beverly Hills, Calif., ceremony was just as successful as last year’s show. Fey concluded the night by toasting the awards as “the beautiful mess we hoped it would be.”
