Clearly, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves the ’70s. Not long after awarding the Best Miniseries or TV Movie statuette to HBO’s Behind the Candelabra, presenter Drew Barrymore revealed that another Me Decade period piece was going home with Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: David O. Russell’s American Hustle.
After almost accidentally thanking the Academy – whoops, wrong awards show! – producer Charles Roven gave a heartfelt acceptance speech. ”We had the privilege of telling this particular story about the art of survival, about resilience, and about reinvention,” he said. Groven also made special note of director and co-writer Russell, “whose love and passion for these flawed but indomitable characters is etched on every frame of the film.”
He finished by thanking the film’s “dream team” of actors, including Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence – both of whom won Globes for their performances in the film earlier tonight.
