"12 Years A Slave" was named Best Picture - Drama at the 71st annual Golden Globes awards. Steve McQueen's film, based on the 1853 memoir by Solomon Northup, a free man who was kidnapped into slavery in 1841, was the most-nominated drama of the night with seven total nods. The Best Picture win was its sole award of the night
"12 Years A Slave" first debuted at the Telluride Film Festival in August, and had its official premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. McQueen's film, his third feature following "Hunger" and "Shame," is favorite to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards in March.
The other Best Picture - Drama nominees were "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Philomena" and "Rush."
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the 71st annual Golden Globes, which were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. Last year, "Argo" won Best Picture - Drama at the Golden Globes. Ben Affleck's film went on to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards as well.
