Perhaps nothing too surprising in the film department. Birdman and Boyhood took several gongs, as expected. It’s great to see The Grand Budapest Hotel taking the award for Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), a category that many had Birdman down for winning. The original Score and Song awards were a little unexpected, as I had Interstellar to take the Original Score by some distance. Maybe the issue of sound design effected The Hollywood Foreign Press panel as much as it did me. Either way, this year has been a tough one to call, with multiple contenders for every award.
