The Golden Globes: The Screen & Style Trophies go to... (Part A)

The Golden Globes took place last night at the Beverly Hilton, Los Angeles. To me, this is an immensely exciting date in the entertainment calendar. Admittedly, that's partly because it sets in motion a thrilling run-up to the Oscars on 27th February, signalling quality cinema and show-stopping (or jaw-dropping) red-carpet fashion. However, a Golden Globe is a highly-coveted accolade in its own right, recognising excellence in film and television, both domestic to the US and internationally. Presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), Golden Globe winners are chosen by the 90+ journalist members, who represent 55 countries (interestingly, you may have heard of this year's HFPA lawsuit). On a more positive note, here's a selection of last night's 'actual' winners:

Jesse Eisenberg plays Mark Zuckerberg, The Social Network
  • Best Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical (why they put these categories together, I don't know): The Kid's Are All Right
Annette Bening and Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right

Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
  • Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical: Glee.
  • Best Mini-Series Or Motion Picture Made for Television: Carlos (France/Germany).
Clare Danes collects her Golden Globe, for Temple Grandin
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-series Or Motion Picture Made for Television: Jane Lynch, Glee.
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-series Or Motion Picture Made for Television: Chris Colfer, Glee.
Phew! That's most of them folks... and next, who won in the style stakes...

  1. I didn't really have many opinions because I haven't seen most of the nominated films/series, but I was thrilled for Boardwalk Empire and Steve Buscemi! That's such a great show. I haven't seen Temple Grandin - I'm sure Clare's was deserved - but I had been rooting for Ramola Garai and Dame Judi Dench.

  2. I loved The Kids Are All Right! Mark Ruffalo is so sexy. The Social Network wasn't so great to me; it was alright but just didn't really wow me like it did so many others.
    P.S. Aren't you sleeping when these American awards shows are on? I missed the show but saw some footage of Ricky Gervais' monologue: he was scandalous!
