Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel took home the Golden Globe for Best Picture, Comedy or Musical prize, winning in an upset.
Anderson gave a predictably Andersonian speech. He listed names of those involved in the film, but said he really wanted to focus on Hollywood Foreign Press Association. He then proceeded to list names of members of the HFPA, appearing to take great joy in their eccentricity. “These are the people I want to thank tonight and many others with names nothing like theirs, but equally captivating,” he said.
Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, which took home screenplay and actor awards, was the predicted winner in the category.
