Tonight, Hollywood honors both television and movies with the Golden Globes and the first major awards of 2014 are being handed out. It’s an interesting mix as it’s the only major award show of the year that honors both film and television in the same show and there was plenty to be proud of this past year.
Best Director packed a lot of big names this year but the race was really only down to two guys. Steve McQueen crafted a gripping tale about slavery in 12 Years a Slave while Alfonso Cuaron countered with perhaps the most visually stunning sci-fi film since Kubrick’s 2001.
There could only be one winner though. That winner ended up being Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron and the won couldn’t have been more deserving for his work this year.
Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity — WINNER
Paul Greengrass, Captain Phillips
Steve McQueen, 12 Years A Slave
Alexander Payne, Nebraska
David O. Russell, American Hustle
