Richard Linklater's innovative coming-of-age drama, filmed over 12 years, was the big movie winner Sunday. Winning three major awards -- Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Director for Linklater and Best Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette -- the movie is now the big frontrunner for the Oscars in February. 


Sunday went a long way towards establishing some credibility for Amazon Prime. The site's most acclaimed show, the transgender comedy 'Transparent,' won Best TV Series - Musical or Comedy and Best Actor in a TV Series - Comedy for its lead Jeffrey Tambor. With its first major award wins, no one can deny that Amazon is now a legitimate player.

Michael Keaton

Keaton's win for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical for "Birdman" caps a career renaissance for the veteran actor. Accepting to an enthusiastic crowd, he gave an emotional acceptance speech in which he thanked his best friend -- his son.  


The FX miniseries cleaned up Sunday. "Fargo" won for Best TV Movie or Miniseries and Best Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries for Billy Bob Thornton. Beating out "True Detective" in both categories, Sunday night was a big boost in prestige for this underrated gem of a show. 

"The Affair"

Perhaps an underdog going into the awards Sunday night, the Showtime series won Best TV Series -Drama and Best Actress in a TV Series - Drama for Ruth Wilson. The awards should bring some attention to the series after beating out ratings giants like "Game of Thrones" and "House of Cards."
