Boyhood was named Best Picture in the Drama category at Sunday night’s Golden Globes. The film won three awards throughout the night, including Patricia Arquette’s win for Best Supporting Actress and Richard Linklater’s Best Director award—making it the production with the most awards won during the ceremony.
After acknowledging that he’d already given a speech for his Best Director win, Richard Linklater ceded the stage to his producer Jonathan Sehring, who in turn praised Linklater.
“To work with somebody like Richard, it’s a once‑in‑a‑lifetime opportunity,” said Sehring. “When he came to us 12 years ago with this project, 14 years ago, we said yes because the man has such humanity. He’s so humble. He put so much of his own life into this movie. This is all Richard.”
Richard Linklater’s groundbreaking small-town coming-of-age odyssey beat out Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game, Selma, and The Theory of Everything for the big prize.
