Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reigned as queens of Hollywood once more this past Sunday, when the royal subjects of the film and television industries gathered for the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards.  Dressed in their red carpet best, some of the most talented actors, writers, directors, producers, and icons took their seats inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel in La La Land, and prepared to cradle their champagne glasses for a night of regal celebration.

Some of the most visual treats came on the red carpet, when we feasted on magnificent gowns in every shape and color adorning the likes of Amy Adams, Cate Blanchett, Emma Watson, and Kate Beckinsale. While Jennifer Lawrence is usually our fave in everything, she resembled a bit too much like Ariel wrapped up in her towel gown to make our list of Golden Globes 2014 Red Carpet Royalty (but she definitely made the Most Memorable from her flawless photobomb of T-Swift).

The commentary by Fey and Poehler, icons of comedy and sheer goddesses in their own right, was flawless as per usual, and it’s already been confirmed they’ll be back to fill our living rooms with their comedic quirks for next year. All hail!

The big winners this year came in the form of American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, Breaking Bad, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. 12 Years a Slave was named Best Motion Picture, Drama, while American Hustle took the top prize for Comedy. Similarly, Breaking Bad won for Best TV Drama, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine won for Comedy. 

Leonardo diCaprio finally won his first Golden Globe, a well-deserved Best Actor, Comedy treat for his performance in The Wolf of Wall Street. Amy Adams won the female counterpart of the award for her role in American Hustle. For Best Actor and Best Actress, Drama, the statuettes went to Matthew McConaughey and Cate Blanchett for their roles in Dallas Buyers Club and Blue Jasmine, respectively.

Alfonso Cuaron won for Best Director for his stunning visual creation in Gravity. Best Screenplay – Motion Picture went to Her’s Spike Jonze, and the Best Animated Feature went to Frozen. 

Our girl J-Law took Best Supporting Actress, Motion Picture for American Hustle, while Dallas Buyers Club’s Jared Leto took Best Supporting Actor. The Best Actor/Actress categories for television dramas went to Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and House of Cards’ Robin Wright. The comedic counterparts went to Andy Samberg for his role on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Amy Poehler herself for her portrayal on Parks and Recreation.

It was a night of majesty and glitz, as the best in Hollywood royalty are. The rightful heirs took their thrones and will reign supreme for an entire year – until the next batch of budding princes and princesses come to fetch their crowns.
