The 2014 Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for the second year, took place on Sunday, Jan. 12 in Los Angeles, awarding excellence in television and film.

In the film categories, “American Hustle” took home three awards, increasing chances of sweeping the Oscars when nominations are announced on Thursday, Jan. 16. In addition to winning the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Comedy, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence took home the Golden Globe for Best Leading and Supporting Actress in a Musical or a Comedy, respectively. Both actresses heralded director David O. Russell, with Adams praising him for for writing “amazing roles for women. Thank you so much for showing that a princess can punch and wear a low cut gown.”

“12 Years a Slave” won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Drama, but failed to win any of its other seven nominations.

Cate Blanchett won the Golden Glove for Best Leading Actress in a Drama for her work in “Blue Jasmine,” while Leonardo DiCaprio won for Best Leading Actor in a Comedy for his performance in “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

For their performance in “Dallas Buyers Club,” Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto were awarded the Best Leading Actor and Best Supporting Actor in a Drama.

In the television categories, AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” which recently ended after five critically-acclaimed seasons, took home two Golden Globes: Best Television Drama Series and for Best Leading Actor in a Drama Series for Bryan Cranston. “This is such a wonderful honor and such a lovely way to say goodbye to the show and what it means to me,” Cranston said. On the comedy side, Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” also took home two Globes: Best Television Comedy Series, and for Best Leading Actor in a Comedy Series for Andy Samberg.

In their opening monologue, Fey and Poehler set the tone for the event by throwing zingers at the nominees, for the “women and gay men watching at home.” No nominee was safe, with jovial shots hurled at Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Jennifer Lawrence, Jonah Hill, and most memorably, Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The Cecil B. DeMille Award, an honor bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for outstanding contributions to the entertainment world, was presented to Woody Allen. Notorious for skipping award ceremonies, Diane Keaton was on hand to accept the lifetime achievement award. “I think it’s safe to say that Woody Allen is an anomaly. He’s made 74 movies in 48 years,” Keaton said. “He’s directed them, he’s starred in them, he’s produced them and of course, he’s written them. He’s written all of them, every one.”
