Matthew McConaughey’s grin was priceless when he recently got back his Golden Globe trophy for Best Actor–Drama, this time with his name engraved on it. He looked at the nameplate with unabashed joy after Theo Kingma, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes, presented the trophy to him. Then Matthew sat down, put the trophy on the table, and talked about his busy awards season, which culminates at the 86th Academy Awards (tomorrow morning, Manila time).

In our view, one of the biggest winners at last week’s Golden Globe Awards was Leonardo DiCaprio, star of Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street.” The TV-film tilt had other major and “upset” victors, but Leo stands out because his Best Actor (Comedy/Musical) award symbolizes the apex of his difficult, career-long self-transformation, from a sensitive to even troubled child actor to the veritable King of Hollywood he has become today.
The “Breaking Bad” victory lap continued at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, taking honors for outstanding dramatic cast and for lead actor Bryan Cranston.
Though Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult remain quiet about the status of their relationship, the actor says he couldn’t be prouder of the Oscar winner.
Hollywood’s A-list stars donned eye-popping gowns—with welcome pops of colors—on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday (Monday in Manila) at the Beverly Hilton in Hollywood.
