The Golden Globes are being handed out tonight which means the best movies have to offer are being honored. While television is also be honored tonight, so too are the films of this past year. Part of the glory of the Golden Globes is that the Oscars are likely being predicted tonight, but even if the actors and their projects win tonight end up getting snubbed, they still at least have their Golden Globe moment in the spotlight.

Best Actor — Drama

Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years A Slave
Idris Elba, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom
Tom Hanks, Captain Phillips
Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club– WINNER
Robert Redford, All Is Lost

The win for McConaughey was vindicating in more than one way. Not only did he explain the well known story of how hard it was to find people to make the film Dallas Buyers Club, he as an actor had been written off long ago. After his romantic comedy trip back in the 2000s, we all though McConaughey had fallen off the map.

He has roared back and now not only took home the Globe, but is in line to take home Oscar gold as well.
