BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (JANUARY 12, 2014) (UNRESTRICTED POOL) - Golden Globe winners met with the media backstage Sunday (January 12). Chiwetel Ejiofor, Leonardo Dicaprio, and Cate Blanchett were just a few who turned up to celebrate their wins.

Ejiofor spoke on behalf of the cast of "12 Years A Slave," which won the Globe for Best Picture Drama.

"In the end, Solomon's story was about human respect and human dignity and what those things really mean and the ways in which we can engage, it's never too early, too late to engage and to continue to engage with those things. It's like Steve was saying, it's great that people have received the film in the way that they have with story with that subject matter and the wider reach of that subject matter, I think internationally."

Leonardo DiCaprio, who won Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for his role in "The Wolf of Wall Street," sang the praises of the film's director Martin Scorsese.

"I'm just thankful that Martin Scorsese is punk rock, is still this vital at 71-years old. There's no filmmakers left like this. This man is amazing. He's one of the greatest artists of our time."

"Blue Jasmine's" Cate Blanchett said there was a big difference between her and her character in the film - besides her character's dependance on drugs and her mentally instability.

"My identity is not based on either my work or on any of this. It's a wonderful mirage to be here tonight, and I'm very happy to receive this, but it's not entirely who I am, unlike Jasmine."

Jennifer Lawrence said she wasn't yet sure of how she was going to celebrate her win for Best Supporting Actress for "American Hustle."

"I don't know. I need to catch up on my drinking."

Matthew McConaughey said he didn't have a lot of encouragement at home, before winning Best Actor in a Drama.

"My son was like, 'I really hope you win Papa, but you're going to lose.'"

Director Alfonso Cuaron revealed that he had an alternative ending to his film "Gravity."

"I thought that the best ending was, Sandra is on the ground. She gets up, all this heroic music going on. She takes two steps, and then suddenly something falls and crushes her. And it's George Clooney. And she just fell. And that's the end of the movie."

Also backstage, U2's Bono reflected on meeting Nelson Mandela, while Michael Douglas spoke endearingly about his "Behind the Candelabra" co-star Matt Damon.
