Major Globes Winners Include 'Boyhood,' Amazon's 'Transparent'

12 Jan, 2015 By: John Latchem



The distinction between SVOD services and traditional television networks took another hit at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes Awards Jan. 11, with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association bestowing trophies on several online originals.

In particular, Amazon Prime's critically lauded "Transparent," a comedy starring Jeffrey Tambor as a family's transgendered patriarch, won two major awards, taking Best TV Comedy or Musical Series and Best Actor for Tambor.

In addition, Netflix’s “House of Cards” pulled in a Best Actor in a TV Drama trophy for Kevin Spacey.

On the movie side of things, most of the winners are still in theaters, but viewers hoping to check out the winners on disc in conjunction with the imminent Oscar nominations have a few choices.

The top winner was Boyhood, which won three tophies: Best Motion Picture Drama, Best Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette and Best Director for Richard Linklater. Paramount Home Media Distribution recently released the Blu-ray and DVD of the film, which was filmed over a period of 12 years to track the growth of its child actors to tell the story of a family over the course of a decade.

Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical was Wes Anderson’s quirky The Grand Budapest Hotel, available on DVD and Blu-ray from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Best Animated Feature went to DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 2, available on Blu-ray and DVD from Fox.

Best TV Drama Series went to Showtime’s “The Affair,” which also won Best Actress in a TV Drama for Ruth Wilson. The first season of the show hasn’t yet been announced for disc, but episodes are available on demand.

The award for Best TV Miniseries or Movie went to the first season of Fox’s “Fargo,” which is available on Blu-ray and DVD. The adaptation of the classic 1996 film also won Best Actor in a TV Miniseries or Movie for Billy Bob Thornton.
