‘Boyhood’ continued its award season streak by winning three awards, including best drama, at the 72nd Golden Globes on Sunday. Director Richard Linklater and supporting actress Patricia Arquette were the widely-lauded film’s other winners.

The musical/comedy category offered a surprise, with ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ edging out ‘Birdman’ for best film.

Eddie Redmayne won best actor, drama for ‘The Theory of Everything’, while Julianne Moore won best actress, drama for the indie ‘Still Alice’. Michael Keaton won best actor in a musical/comedy for ‘Birdman’. J.K. Simmons won best supporting actor for ‘Whiplash’, for his portrait of a demanding music instructor.

Amy Adams beat out favorite Emily Blunt (Into the Woods) by taking home the award for best actress in a musical/comedy for playing artist Margaret Keane in Tim Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’. John Legend and Common took the stage to accept best original song for ‘Selma’, the only win for the Paramount Pictures drama.

According to Variety, in a night of uncharacteristically few celebrity winners, George Clooney added a much-needed boost of star power to the Globes when he accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

The Golden Globes, which honors both television and film, plays an important role in shaping the Oscar race.
