EVO - "12 Years a Slave" took the coveted Golden Globe for best drama and "American Hustle" won best musical or comedy on Sunday (January 12).

"American Hustle," directed by David O. Russell, was the top winner with three Globes for its seven nominations, while AIDS film "Dallas Buyers Club" starring Matthew McConaughey, took home two acting awards for him and co-star Jared Leto.

Steve McQueen's slavery drama "12 Years a Slave" won one award out of its seven nominations. It was entirely shut out from the acting honors, for which it had been a presumed favorite.

Alfonso Cuaron won best director for "Gravity," a film starring Sandra Bullock as an astronaut tumbling through space and life.

Cate Blanchett won for best actress in a drama category for her turn as a riches-to-rags socialite in Woody Allen's tragicomedy "Blue Jasmine."

"I just wondered, can people at home hear this music, or do they suddenly just think that you're just getting really fast because you're having a panic attack, which I'm probably having."

Amy Adams won best actress in a musical or comedy for her role in "American Hustle," while Jennifer Lawrence took best supporting actress for the same film.

"Thank you to my family and my team. I'm sorry I'm shaking so much. Don't ever do this again."

Leonardo DiCaprio won best actor in a musical or comedy for his role in "The Wolf of Wall Street," his fifth collaboration with director Martin Scorsese.

In a setting more intimate and whimsical than the tightly scripted Oscars, returning co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler poked fun at the most powerful in the glamorous audience.
