‘American Hustle’ wins 3 Golden Globes awards

DHAKA: ‘American Hustle’ has won three awards at the Golden Globes including best film comedy or musical.

Its stars Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence also picked up best actress and supporting actress prizes for their roles in the 1970s-set crime movie.

Steve McQueen’s ‘12 Years a Slave’ picked up the top honour of the night, winning best film drama, reports the BBC.

However, it was the only award the movie picked up, after going into the evening with seven nominations.

Both McQueen and stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o had received nods but came away empty-handed.

Collecting the award, McQueen said he was ‘a little bit in shock’ and thanked his wife for finding the book by Solomon Northup, on which the film was based.

The other film awards were spread around a number of movies.

Matthew McConaughey was named best actor in a drama for his role as Aids patient Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club.

The actor said the award was ‘unexpected, but graciously accepted’.

His co-star Jared Leto also won the best supporting actor prize for his depiction of a transgender woman.

Cate Blanchett collected the best actress in a drama award for her part as a disgraced socialite in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, while Leonardo DiCaprio won best actor in a comedy or musical for ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.
