The 71st annual Golden Globe awards

by MEGAN ROMANCZUK Section Editor

The 71st annual Golden Globe event premiered on January 12 ,2014 with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey as the hosts for the night.

However, the show started off on a rather bad note when a sewer pipe burst and sprayed water on more than a fifth of the red carpet.

All of the interviewers had to move out of the way in order to stay dry and allow professionals to fix the problem.

Once the red carpet was dry, thousands of celebrities began to walk the carpet decked out in the hottest designer gear.

Some of the best dressed woman were Emma Watson in Dior Haute Couture trousers, Allison Williams in Alexander McQueen, Poehler in Stella McCartney, and Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad.

Olivia Wilde and Kerry Washington strutted the red carpet showing off their baby bump in the latest trends.

Throughout the three hour award ceremony, Poehler and Fey entertained the crowd, as well as viewers at home, with funny skits to keep everyone on their toes.

Jennifer Lawrence, known for her role in the “Hunger Games”, won Best Supporting Actress for the movie “American Hustle”.

One surprise that shocked everyone was when Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor Musical or Comedy for the three hour movie “The Wolf of Wall Street”.

“I was a huge fan of Leonardo DiCaprio ever since he was Jack in ‘Titanic’. He deserves so many awards for his incredible acting skills that allow him to play a new character in each film,” says senior Danielle Paxton.

“Frozen” hit movie theaters just a couple weeks before the Golden Globes and won its first award for Best Animated Feature Film. The other nominees were tough to beat being that “Despicable Me 2” was a family favorite, as well as “The Croods”.

“‘Frozen’ was by far the best children’s movie I have ever seen. The animation was flawless, the story line kept me on my toes, the humor was hilarious and the upbeat music kept the movie alive,” says senior Kaitlin Grassi.

This was the first time in 10 years that the Golden Globes had an average of 21 million viewers. Last year’s event only got up to 19.7 million.
