72nd Annual Golden Globe Winners

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards saw big wins for films Boyhood, The Theory of Everything, and Birdman—but also for rising star Gina Rodriguez. The 30-year-old’s portrayal of Jane Villanueva in the CW’s new series Jane the Virgin won her her first Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, beating out like Lena Dunham (Girls), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black).
“This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes,” Rodriguez said, teary-eyed, during her acceptance speech. “My father used to tell me to say every morning that today is going to be a great day. I can and I will. Well, Dad, today’s a great day. I can and I did.”
It was also a big night for Eddie Redmayne, who won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for his incredibly heartbreaking portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. The 33-year-old English actor beat out other excellent actors including Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher), David Oyelowo (Selma), and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler).
A noteworthy moment of the night was when Transparent won for Best TV Comedy and director Jill Soloway gave a touching acceptance speech about the transgender community. “I want to thank the trans community. They are our family and they make this possible,” she said. “This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn, and too many trans people who died too young.”
George Clooney was also presented the Cecil B. DeMille award for his “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” and Kevin Spacey finally won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama, for his role in the Netflix-exclusive series House of Cards.
