12 Jan – The 72nd Golden Globe Awards has just wrapped up its show for the year, with "Boyhood" winning the awards' top honours.
Golden Globes 2015, hosted by returning hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, sees the Richard Linklater film take home the awards for Best Motion Picture Drama, Best Performance By An Actress In A Supporting Role In A Motion Picture, and Best Director Motion Picture.
Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking.
Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore won the best actor and best actress awards, respectively; Redmayne winning for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything" and Moore for her role as the titular character in "Still Alice".
With the Sony hack attack and the big issue "The Interview" has raised, it was no surprise to see Korean-American actress Margaret Cho joining the hosts onstage as a North Korean army general, Cho Yung Ja.
However, Daily Mail reports that not all were happy with the joke. Several posts online has popped up accusing Cho of promoting racist stereotypes.
