Though the Globes have had a spotty track record over the last decade predicting the Oscars, a Globe winner for Best Picture has won the academy’s top honor for the last two years (“The Artist” and “Argo”). That’s good news for “Hustle” and for “12 Years a Slave,” which won Best Drama Picture.

Best Picture was the only win for “12 Years,” while rival nominee “Gravity” also won a single prize: Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron.

The Italian film “The Great Beauty” won Best Foreign Language Film, besting Cannes Film Festival champ “Blue is the Warmest Color.” As expected, Best Animated Film went to Disney’s “Frozen.”

The final season of “Breaking Bad” was a big winner on the TV side, winning Best Drama Series and Drama Actor (Bryan Cranston). Despite winning multiple Emmys over its first five years, “Breaking Bad” had not been embraced by the Hollywood Foreign Press until now. “House of Cards‘s” Robin Wright rounded out the TV drama winners, taking Best Drama Actress over frontrunner Kerry Washington (“Scandal“).

FOX’s freshman series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was another double-winner, taking Best Musical/Comedy Series and Musical/Comedy Actor (Andy Samberg).

“I never win, so I can’t believe I won,” said Globes co-host Amy Poehler, taking to the stage to accept TV Musical/Comedy Actress for the first time for “Parks and Recreation.” Indeed, it was a rare showbiz award win for Poehler, who has also been shut out at the Emmys and SAG Awards over the years.

Behind the Candelabra” continued to reign following its sweep of the Primetime Emmys in September. It won Best TV Movie/Miniseries and TV Movie/Mini Actor for Michael Douglas. After her upset loss at the Emmys, Elisabeth Moss took TV Movie/Mini Actress for “Top of the Lake.”
