‘American Hustle’ led the diverse group of winners at last night’s 71st Golden Globe Awards. The ceremony, which was broadcast live on NBC, was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Bevery Hills. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were the co-hosts of the ceremony for the second year in a row.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the winners of the Golden Globe Awards, presented David O. Russell’s ABSCAM-inspired comedy, ‘American Hustle,’ with several awards. The film not only won for Best Musical or Comedy, Amy Adams was honored as Best Performance in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and Jennifer Lawrence received the Best Supporting Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama, Musical or Comedy.

Other highlights from the ceremony include the wins for the biography drama, ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ which was also recognized for its acting. Matthew McConaughey won his first Golden Globe, for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama. Jared Leto, meanwhile, won for Best Supporting Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama, Musical or Comedy.

Leonardo DiCaprio also won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, for his role in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ He joked that he never thought he’d win a trophy at the ceremony for a comedy.

’12 Years a Slave,’ which was considered to be frontrunner in all seven of its categories. However, it was passed over with all of its nominations, except for the last award of the night. The historical biography was named as Best Motion Picture-Drama. The film’s director, Steve McQueen was surprised by the win, saying he was a “little bit in shock. I wasn’t expecting it.”
