As expected, Birdman flew high at Sunday night’s 72nd Golden Globes, but it was a 12-year-long epic about a boy, and his Boyhood, that took home the most honors.

The Alejandro G. Iñárritu dark comedy earned awards for best screenplay and best comedic actor in a motion picture, while Richard Linklater’s cinematic feat, Boyhood, took home three trophies, including those for best director and best drama.

The only question that’s left is which will prevail at the 87th Academy Awards in February. While the Globes offers dual recognition for drama and comedy categories—which Boyhood and Birdman fall under, respectively—the Oscars couples all best film, acting, and directing categories onto one ballot. That will certainly make things interesting come February.
