The 'American Hustle' actress brings home Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture trophy, while U2's 'Ordinary Love' for 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom' wins Best Original Song.
First winners have been announced at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards. Jennifer Lawrence brought home Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture trophy for her work in "American Hustle". She beat other actresses such as Sally Hawkins with her movie "Blue Jasmine", Lupita Nyong'O with her historical flick "12 Years a Slave", Julia Roberts for "August: Osage County" and June Squibb with "Nebraska".
After receiving her trophy, Lawrence thanked director David O. Russell and said, "I actually did watch all the films this year - well, not all of them, but you know what I mean. So I can say that the women tonight, it's such an honor to be nominated with you." The 23-year-old star, who apparently was nervous on stage, added, "I don't know why this is so terrifying; it's obviously a good thing. I don't know why I'm so scared. I'm sorry."
Following announcements for the winners in TV categories, the trophy for Best Original Score in a Motion Picture was handed to Alex Ebert for his work in "All is Lost". Other nominees in the category included Alex Heffes ("Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom"), Steven Price ("Gravity"), John Williams ("The Book Thief") and Hans Zimmer ("12 Years a Slave").
Shortly after, Best Original Song went to U2's "Ordinary Love" for "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom". Bono took the stage and paid tribute to Nelson Mandela, calling the beloved figure the "man who refuses to hate" before mentioning that the award was "really personal, for us."
