Last night’s Golden Globe awards ceremony celebrated Hollywood’s best performances in television and in film.

“12 Years A Slave,” the film about a free black man captured and sold into slavery, lost in the individual actor categories but picked up a Best Picture award, stunning its director, Steve McQueen.

Meanwhile, in television, Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg won the Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy category for his role in the freshman show, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which also went on to win the best television comedy award.
