Boyhood pulled off a huge Best Picture - Drama win at the 2015 Golden Globes, besting stunning nominees Selma, Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything. Director Richard Linklater and supporting actress Patricia Arquette both won Golden Globes for the film. But will all this good fortune carry through to the Oscars?

There's nothing quite like Boyhood. Though it seems like a standard coming-of-age story on the surface, telling of a young boy and his single mom as the father (Ethan Hawke) skirts in and out of the picture, it was shot over the course of 12 years. Being an indie film, its future in the awards race was unclear. But Sunday night's big wins proved it's virtually guaranteed for an Oscar nomination.

Patricia Arquette Boyhood Best Supporting Actress Golden Globes 'Boyhood' star Patricia Arquette won the 2015 Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress! With the film also winning for Best Director and Best Picture, it's a lock for the upcoming Oscar race.

Prior to the big reveal, the front-runner of the Best Picture - Drama seemed like it was down to three contenders: BoyhoodSelma and Theory of Everything. Selma served as a reflection of the current political climate in the nation, with specific regards to the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. However, its star David Oyelowo and director Ava DuVernay lost in their respective Globes categories.

Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything were all amazing films in their own right, but all were more significant because of their strong performances. Steve Carell transformed into the mentally deranged John du Pont, Benedict Cumberbatch into Nazi code-breaker Alan Turing, and Redmayne into a young Stephen Hawking. But in terms of the overall quality of the films, they didn’t seem like surefire winners. 

Of these films, fellow Brits Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Remayne were going head to head in the Globes’ Best Actor category. Both have also been getting some attention lately for their recent wedding plans. Remayne, 33, married his publicist girlfriend Hannah Bagshawe on Dec. 15. Cumberbatch, 38, also took the next step and got engaged to Sophie Hunter, who was also revealed to be pregnant. We can’t wait to welcome baby Cumberbatch to the world!

Boyhood Ethan Hawke Ellar Coltrane 'Boyhood' is the Best Picture Oscar front-runner you've likely never seen. Will Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane and the rest of the cast dominate the race?

With the Golden Globes aside, we can now focus on the bigger race ahead: the Oscars. The 2015 nominations will be unveiled the morning of Jan. 15, and the nominees for this year’s Globes are looking good enough to join in the fray. Only this time, they’ll be going up against the Best Picture, Comedy/Musical contenders.

Birdman with Michael Keaton and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel also seem like locks for Best Picture nominations. American Sniper and Unbroken, both of which were snubbed in this year’s Globes race in all categories, could get back in the game, as well.
