"This was a huge privilege," he said, thanking "Stephen, Jane and the entire Hawking family for letting us into their lives."
The 33-year-old plays Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything," a performance that required months of physical training. He defeated Steve Carell, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jake Gyllenhaal and David Oyelowo for the honor. This is Redmayne's first Golden Globe award.
