Well, that's a wrap. "12 Years a Slave" won Best Drama, but "American Hustle" took three of the top prizes including Best Comedy/Musical, Best Actress Comedy/Musical and Best Supporting Actress.  Probably the biggest surprise of the night, though not a shock if you've been reading the tea leaves of late, Matthew McConaughey scoring the Best Actor (Drama) prize for "Dallas Buyers Club" over Robert RedfordChiwetel Ejiofor and that crowded field.  More analysis tomorrow and in the meantime, check out to see how we did with our Globes predictions.

Earlier: Well, ready or not , here we go on awards season kickoff 2013-2014. Sure, there's been the critics groups and the guild awards, but the Golden Globes are the first time we get to see all those stars gussied up, well sauced, and gushing over golden statuettes. While the HFPA ain't exactly the Academy, they sure do throw a good party, and invite some great hosts to boot. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back for a second time, after their widely praised hosting performance last year (anything beats Seth McFarlane, amiright?). 

The nominees this year are a fairly solid, straight down the middle bunch, no wild out-of-left-field choices, except for maybe "Rush," which hasn't seemed to gain much traction thus far, but let's be honest, it's no "The Tourist." Also, Kate Winslet's nomination for "Labor Day" seems to be the "Celebrity We Want At Our Party" nomination, which, let's face it, it wouldn't be a Globes without that specific award. 

We will be live-tweeting over at @ThePlaylist, so follow us there for admittedly easy snark, fashion commentary, and tallies of blatant drunkenness. We'll also be updating the winners live during the show right here, so keep checking back. We swear it will be just like watching the Globes with your sassy, wine-swilling BFF.  Full nominations are below and btw, if you missed them our full Golden Globe predictions are here.

    Wow, I disagree with everything being said here. First off, I think they got every acting category right (drama that is) as all four of my picks were McConaughey, Blanchett, Leto and Lawrence. But if I had to pick the best out of those it has to be McConaughey. Dallas Buyers Club was the role he was born to play, period. And the movie itself I setter than you all give it credit for. In fact, it's my 2nd favorite movie of year. Also, I can't believe the hate for American Hustle, my number 3 movie of the year. I found it better than The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook. I don't think the film is trying to act more important than it is, cause what it is is just an enjoyable character piece. And Jennifer Lawrence deserved the Golden Globe and the Oscar as she highlights every scene she is in. You guys can have Her and Inside Llewyn Davis anyday as I found films boring as shit. Dallas Buyers Club and American Hustle are the films I'll be rewatching ten years down the line.

    Very disappointed for Fassbender and Nyong'o. Leto is overrated, while AH is essentially superficial. Ten years from now, the wins for Leto and Lawrence will elicit "huh?" reactions.

  • lee | January 13, 2014 1:20 PM

    AH is essentially superficial enough to nab the best picture Oscar.

    Here's a review for those who have not yet seen the movie, "12 Years a Slave" that won the Golden Globes' Best Picture, Drama Award, and for those who have seen the film and still reflect on it.

    People need to see American Hustle more than once to see how empty it really is compared to how good it wants to be.

  • jz | January 13, 2014 5:12 AM

    My guess is that American Hustle will be another bland, forgettable Best Picture Oscar winner.
    It's not as dark as Wolf of Wall St. or 12 Years a Slave. Gravity won't be winning either because it's scifi-ish.
    Most of the academy probably hasn't seen Her or Inside Llewyn Davis, so those are out of the competition.

  • James | January 12, 2014 11:22 PMReply

    I loved American Hustle but I think 12 years deserved more acting wins over it and Dallas buyers club. Leto is overrated

  • James | January 12, 2014 11:26 PM

    Also Oscar Isaac or anyone else prolly should have won over Leo. Wolf was not great and had a terrible soundtrack for a Scorsese movie

  • Dan | January 12, 2014 11:16 PMReply

    Chiwetel, Fassbender and Nyong'o all should have won.

  • Hera | January 12, 2014 11:07 PMReply

    American Hustle is so basic and overrated. I don't understand why critics and the HFPA love it SO much.

  • Lila | January 13, 2014 4:35 AM

    Totally agree - it will not be remembered in 10 years time as one of the greats. Also felt that way about Silver Linings, SO overrated.

  • KT | January 12, 2014 11:21 PM

    Every year Hollywood needs a hype film. Considering all the talent involved, this is it. In actuality, the overwhelming majority of David O. Russell's films are just... Okay.

  • Caleb | January 12, 2014 8:21 PMReply

    Jacqueline Bisset just broke the Internet.
