Golden Globes 2014: Leonardo DiCaprio Wins the Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy (GIF)


American Hustle actress Jennifer Lawrence  just announced the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.  And the award goes to…Leonardo DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street.

With as much buzz as the film American Hustle has received, many thought the Christian Bale would be a shoe-in for this award. However, it would be DiCaprio’s performance as Jordan Belfort, a real-life Wall Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort that would come out on top.

DiCaprio has been nominated for a total of ten Golden Globe Awards over the course of his career. This is his second win. The first was in 2005 for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in The Aviator.
