George Clooney Snags A Golden Globe

And we have all the winners listed...

The Golden Globes were handed out last night. Our full blog report is here, but suffice to say, Ricky Gervais was largely on his best behaviour, there were few shockers and just one or two snubs and pleasant surprises.

While the film side of the evening offered up one or two more unexpected moments: The Descendants taking Best Drama over the likes of The Help and Moneyball, for example – a lot of the rest felt like a dress rehearsal for the Oscars. Meryl took home another gong, A Separation was recognised and Christopher Plummer got a trophy for Beginners.

TV-wise, there were some shockers – while Kelsey Grammer is the best thing about Boss, he was facing the likes of Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Homeland’s Damian Lewis. And the idea that Episodes' Matt LeBlanc could win out over Alec Baldwin and some of the others in the Best acting award for Musical/Comedy on TV was a head-scratcher. Sure, LeBlanc seems like a nice guy, but playing a version of himself? Really?
