Golden Globes 2014: Matthew McConaughey wins Best Actor, Motion Picture Drama (GIF)


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.

One of the film awards handed out was also one of the most hotly contested. In a pretty good preview of the Oscars, the Best Actor in a Drama Golden Globe was up in the air. Tom Hanks and Robert Redford had the prestigious names while Matthew McConaughey, Idris Elba and Chiwetel Ejiofor had the griping roles.

Ultimately, it was  Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club.
