Steven McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave won top honor at Sunday night’s Golden Globes for it’s brilliant adaptation of the 1853 memoir by, Solomon Northup.

The historical drama, which was nominated for 7 awards, only walked away with one award … The biggest honor of the night of the night, “Best Film Drama.” As the team accepted the award, director McQueen revealed that he was more than shocked by the win. “I’m going to forget someone,” he told the audience. “I’m so sorry. I wasn’t expecting this.” McQueen then went on to thank his cast for their incredible work in the film.

Backstage in the press room, the film’s star, Chiwetel Ejiofor expressed how the film impacted his own life.  “It was always a story about human respect and human dignity and what those things really mean,” he said. “It’s had a huge impact on me, on my life, just telling the story and learning about the story.”

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
