American Hustle was the big winner at last night's Golden Globe awards as it won three major prizes.

The David O. Russell directed movie scooped Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) as well as Best Actress (Musical or Comedy) for Amy Adams and Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence.

12 Years A Slave had been tipped to be the big winner this awards season, but it claimed just one prize; Best Picture Drama.

Director Steve McQueen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o were all nominated, but all missed out.

Matthew McConaughey stepped up his bid to win the Best Actor Oscar as he claimed the Best Actor - Drama Golden Globe for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.

He saw off competition from Ejiofor, Idris Elba, Tom Hanks, and Robert Redford: many of whom we may see in the Oscar race when the nominations are announced later this week.

There was also more success for Dallas Buyers Club as Jared Leto as picked up the Best Supporting Actor gong for his performance.

Sadly, both McConaughey and Leto were overlooked when the Bafta nominations were announced last week.

Cate Blanchett has been tipped for Oscar glory since the beginning of autumn 2013, and she picked up the Best Actress - Drama for her performance in Blue Jasmine.

Jennifer Lawrence triumphed at the Golden Globes for the second year running as she scooped Best Supporting Actress.

American Hustle sees Lawrence reunite with director O. Russell - their first collaboration came in the form of Silver Linings Playbook. She is now perhaps the favourite to scoop the Best Actress Oscar.

From the start of the awards season the Best Director category really has been a two horse race between Alfonso Cuaron for Gravity and Steve McQueen for 12 Years A Slave.

Last night saw Cuaron triumph for his science fiction epic as he was awards the Best Director gong.
