Let’s be real for a moment. The only reason why you’re watching the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards is for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, along with anything Jennifer Lawrence-y Jennifer Lawrence may do. They’re the only way we’ll make it through the ceremony in one piece. But just in case you miss a beat or believe the only awards show that matters is the Oscars, you can Turn The Right Corner to find out who wins without having to endure the whole show. We’ll be updating this live blog post just for you as the winners are announced starting at 5pm PST on NBC. See who takes home the 2014 Golden Globes after the break.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are all smiles as they compare Matt Damon to a garbage person. Big riffs on George Clooney, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Joaquin Phoenix, Martin Scorsese, and Tom Hanks and his prosthetic penis. A good opening monologue. It started off a bit slow, but picked up very quickly, bringing many laughs and tears.
Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks are the first presenters of the evening.

Jennifer Lawrence definitely did her Jennifer Lawrence thing as Hollywood’s beloved manic pixie dream girl all quirky and such. Julia Roberts and Lupita Nyong’o were definitely underlooked here. But hey, what can we expect from the HFPA?

Johnny Depp brings together the final award of the night.
Best Motion Picture – Drama
- 12 Years a Slave (WINNER)
- Captain Phillips
A well deserved win for 12 Years a Slave. It didn’t win Best Actor, Best Screenplay, Best Director, or Best Supporting Actress, but by golly the HFPA gave it the most deserving award of the night. With how spread out the winners were tonight it was a toss up. I almost thought Gravity would have taken it. Everyone won big tonight, Her, 12 Years a Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street, Dallas Buyers Club, American Hustle, and Blue Jasmine. It’s sad to see Inside Llewyn Davis did not win anything tonight however. It will be an interesting road to Oscar from here.
