Awards season is upon us and last night saw the 72nd Golden Globes line Hollywood with the silver screen's most talented actors and actresses.

As predicted, Boyhood, Richard Linklater's film that was 12 years in the making topped the leader board with awards for Best Drama, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress, Patricia Arquette.

Brit heart throb Eddie Redmayne pipped Benedict Cumberbatch and David Oyelowo to the post for the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, alongside Felicity Jones. Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel was named Best Comedy or Musical and Julianne Moore won Best Actress for her role as Alzheimer sufferer in Still Alice. Birdman won Best Screenplay while it's protagonist Michael Keaton won Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.

Surprisingly, The Imitation Game and Gone Girl came away empty handed even though nominated for five and four awards respectively.

But the dedications to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris that were the main talking points of the night. As he accepted his Lifetime Achievement Award, and alongside a spoken love letter to his wife Amal Clooney, George Clooney said "Today was an extraordinary day, there were millions of people who marched not just in Paris but around the world. They didn't march in protest. They marched in support of the idea that we will not walk in fear. So, Je suis Charlie." Kathy Bates, Amy Adams and Helen Mirrem also held up "Je Suis Charlie" buttons showing Hollywood's support for free artistic expression.

Next up, the BAFTAs! Now get yourself to the cinema…
