2014 Golden Globe Winners

By: Elsa Buehler

This year’s Golden Globe Awards proved highly eventful, as per usual, thanks to hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. After a few traditional, insulting and slightly inappropriate jokes aimed at their peers, the dynamic duo gave up the spotlight and the show began. A few highlights included Benedict Cumberbatch accompanying his fiancee, Benedict Cumberbatch presenting, a returning Benedict Cumberbatch photobomb,… okay, maybe I’m biased, but there’s no denying he stole the show.
