Chiwetel Ejiofor, who played the antagonist, The Operative, in Joss Whedon's 2005 film "Serenity" didn't see any wins at the 2014 Golden Globes. He was up for two different best actor categories - Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for "12 Years a Slave" and Best Actor in a Mini-Series or TV Movie for "Dancing on the Edge." Those awards went to Matthew McConaughey and Michael Douglas, respectively.
Although Ejiofor himself didn't win, "12 Years a Slave" did take home one of the most important awards: Best Motion Picture, Drama. His "Dancing on the Edge" costar Jacqueline Bisset also won the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie.
On the red carpet before the show, Ejiofor talked with the media about his nominations. He said his nominations were enough to keep him happy. The LA Times quoted him as saying:
I'm just going to enjoy the show ... it's time to have fun and appreciate this celebration of film and television ... The hard work is over.
Although Ejiofor wasn't personally recognized as a winner at the 2014 Golden Globes, his starring role in "12 Years a Slave" has brought new attention to the British actor.
