Coming-of-age drama Boyhood emerged triumphant on Sunday at the Golden Globes, Hollywood's first major awards show, where celebrities vowed solidarity with France after the Paris attacks.

Boyhood won three Globes including the coveted best drama prize and best director honours for Richard Linklater at the star-studded ceremony at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles.

The pioneering movie -- made over 12 years with the same cast of actors portraying a child's growth to adulthood -- also won a best supporting actress trophy for Patricia Arquette.

"This was a very personal film for me ... and it means so much to us that people have seen it and responded to it in that personal way," Linklater said.

Dark comedy Birdman -- which had started the evening with the most nominations at seven -- and The Theory of Everything, about world-famous scientist Stephen Hawking, each took home two awards.

Birdman, about a washed-up film actor trying to revive his career on stage, took best musical/comedy actor prize for Michael Keaton, and best screenplay for director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

The Theory of Everything, the moving story of Hawking's descent into disability, won best drama actor honours for Britain's Eddie Redmayne, as well as best original score.

The prize for best comedy/musical film went to The Grand Budapest Hotel, a stylish caper starring Ralph Fiennes, while Amy Adams won best actress in a musical/comedy for art fraud film Big Eyes.
