The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has handed out its Golden Globe Awards.
The con-artist caper "American Hustle" looked every bit the Oscar front-runner, winning best picture for a comedy or musical and acting awards for Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence.

Adams used to perform at Chanhassen Dinner Theater. She wasn't the only actor with Minnesota ties up for a Golden Globe.

Newcomer Barkhad Abdi of Minneapolis was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in 'Captain Phillips.' He didn't win. Cloquet native Jessica Lange was nominated for her role in the TV series 'American Horror Story: Coven,' while the Coen brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis" was nominated for three awards.
The award for best movie drama went to "12 Years a Slave."
Matthew McConaughey won the Golden Globe for best actor in a drama for "Dallas Buyers Club" and Cate Blanchett won best actress in a drama for "Blue Jasmine."
Leonardo DiCaprio won his second Globe for his best actor in a comedy for his work in "The Wolf of Wall Street."
The Golden Globes honored "Breaking Bad" as television's best drama and gave Bryan Cranston the top acting award.
Other big winners include the Fox detective comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and the HBO movie on Liberace, "Behind the Candelabra."
The 71st annual Golden Globes aired live Sunday night from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
