5 Times Golden Globe Winners Got Lucky At The Oscars

The award season is probably the best time of the year! From rooting for our favourite nominees to jumping with joy when they win, award shows are a huge deal for movie buffs like us!

So when the Golden Globe awards were on, we were pumped and nervous at the same time! But we had no reason to! All our favourites – from Mr.Robot to Lady Gaga, from Jennifer Lawrence to LEONARDO DICAPRIO (!!!) – got what they truly deserved! We are so happy for all these winners and if any of these past winners are to be believed, they are well on their way to win at the Oscars!

  1. Kate Winslet (The Reader) Not one to underperform, Kate Winslet’s stellar job in The Reader won her the Golden Globe and the Best Actress award at the Oscars! Magnificent, don’t you agree? Kate Winslet
  2. 12 Years a Slave Although it was nominated alongside equally fantastic movies like Dallas Buyers Club and Captain Phillips, the sheer brilliance of 12 Years a Slave led to its win at both Golden Globes and the Academy Awards! Forget 2013, this one’s still best picture for us! 86th Oscars, Backstage
  3. Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) Jennifer Lawrence seems to be a favourite at the award shows! This young actress bagged both these awards for her role in Silver Linings Playbook! J.Law, you rock! Jennifer Lawrence
  4. Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) Alright, alright, alright, Matthew McConaughey is a genius actor! Having won a lot of praise for all his movies, Matthew McConaughey won the Best Actor award at the Golden Globes as well as an Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club! 2013 was quite a year for him, eh?! Matthew McConaughey
  5. Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) Quentin Tarantino is basically screenplay GOD! Winning a Golden Globe and an Oscar for best screenplay must have been a piece of cake for him! We like the way you write, boy! Quentin Tarantino

We are just praying that Leonardo will (finally) take an Oscar home this year!
