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.

One of the more looked forward to awards of the night was Best Picture for a Drama film. The Globes split their Best Picture categories into Drama films and then Comedy and Musical films. For Best Drama, the race was extremely tight and, no pun intended, the drama was high until the award was finally announced.

Best Picture — Drama

12 Years A Slave — WINNER
Captain Phillips
Gravity
Philomena
Rush

The win means that 12 Years a Slave is the new favorite to win Best Picture at the Oscars, even though it’s going to be hotly contested with American Hustle. Still, the film has momentum and the Oscars are for sire going to be interesting, especially after this win.
