Golden Globes 2014: Michael Douglas Wins the Award for Best Actor in a Mini-Series or TV Movie (GIF)


Late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon and Mike & Molly‘s Melissa McCarthy  just announced the award for Best Actor in a Mini-Series or TV Movie. And the award goes to…Michael Douglas for Behind the Candelabra.

Behind the Candelabra is based on the autobiographical novel, and details the tempestuous 6-year relationship between Liberace and his (much younger) lover, Scott Thorson. Douglas portrays the sequined musician himself.

While onstage accepting his award, Douglas quips to his co-star Matt Damon that the only reason he is there and not him is because he had more sequins.

Speaking of accepting his award, here is a look at Douglas onstage accepting his award.

The show, hosted by comediennes and Saturday Night Live alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, is arguably one of the biggest parties of the year.

The Golden Globes have always been known as a precursor to the Oscars, so don’t be surprised if you see some of these same names walk away with statues when the Oscars come on March 2, 2014.
