0 29

The terrorist attacks in Paris cast their long shadow over the 72nd Golden Globe awards last night, as Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel took home Best Picture prizes in the drama and comedy categories respectively.

Actor-director George Clooney referred to Sunday’s rallies in Paris and beyond as he accepted the Cecil B DeMille lifetime achievement award, in recognition of his film career, but also of his humanitarian work, independent.co.uk reports.

“Today was an extraordinary day, there were millions of people who marched not just in Paris but around the world,” Clooney said, during the Golden Globes ceremony at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles. “They didn’t march in protest. They marched in support of the idea that we will not walk in fear. So, Je suis Charlie.”

The evening’s major film prizes were shared among several movies. The Golden Globe for Best picture (Drama) went to Boyhood, the moving depiction of a Texas adolescence filmed sporadically over 12 years by director Richard Linklater, who also took home the Best Director gong. Patricia Arquette, who plays a single mother in the film, won Best Supporting Actress for her performance.
