Sony's American Hustle enjoys good night at Golden Globes

  • Sony's (SNE) "American Hustle" has picked up three Golden Globes, the most of any film, including Amy Adams as best actress.
  • Meanwhile, Fox's (FOXA) "12 Years a Slave" won the coveted award for best drama.
  • The achievements set up both films nicely for the Oscars - the nominations for which are due out on Thursday - and should help boost their box office receipts.
  • "They have a lot to gain from tonight," says BoxOffice.com's Phil Contrino. "'12 Years a Slave' could easily double its domestic gross" in the U.S. and Canada.
  • The awards for "American Hustle" come as Sony's film unit operates under intense scrutiny, particularly from Dan Loeb and especially after making an operating loss of $181M in FQ2.
  • Comcast's (CMCSA) "Dallas Buyers Club" won two awards and AMC Networks' (AMCX) "Breaking Bad" gained another gong.
