Golden Globes: Jared Leto wins for 'Dallas Buyers Club'

01/12/2014 by Joseph Apodaca

Jared Leto has won the 2014 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club," marking his first win and first nomination.

The winners were announced at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California on Jan. 12. Leto beat out Bradley Cooper of "American Hustle," Barkhard Abdi of "Captain Phillips," Daniel Bruhl of "Rush" and Michael Fassbender for "12 Years a Slave" for the award.

"Dallas Buyers Club" focuses on a man named Ron Woodroof (played by Matthew McConaughey), who after learning he has been diagnosed with the AIDS virus, smuggles anti-viral medications from around the world that are not approved in the U.S. in order to survive. Leto plays Rayon, a transgender AIDS patient. Both Leto and McConaughey lost a significant amount of weight for their roles.

This is Leto's first career Golden Globe Award nomination. In addition to being the frontman of the rock group Thirty Seconds to Mars, he has starred in numerous films and television shows, including "Alexander" and "My So-Called Life."
