Golden Globe Winners 2011

Colin Firth, Social Network do well...

They don't exactly carry the cache of the Oscars, but the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards were handed out last night in America, and there were good results for several films, including The Social Network (which took the drama screenplay, score, director and film awards) and The King’s Speech (a somewhat unsurprising drama actor win for Colin Firth).

Ricky Gervais was the host for the evening, his second stint behind the podium for the Globes, and he started as he meant to go on, launching a torrent of gags about Charlie Sheen, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s recent financial scandals and various subjects that had the crowd alternately chuckling and jeering. Not sure if he’ll be invited back next year, but at least he made a stab at getting beyond the usual bland backslapping. And let’s face it – when you hire Gervais for a second time, and allow him to drink again, what do you really expect?

But back to the awards themselves - it was a good night for The Kids Are All Right, which nabbed the comedy/musical picture award and the comedy/musical actress gong for Annette Bening. Paul Giamatti was more of a surprise, taking comedy/musical actor for Barney’s Version, while Natalie Portman continued her awards swoop with dramatic actress for Black Swan.

In the supporting categories, Christian Bale took the dramatic actor statuette, with Melissa Leo as actress, both from The Fighter. Toy Story 3, meanwhile, nabbed best animated feature. Oh, and even Burlesque shimmied home with one gong, best original song for Diane Warren’s You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me.

In TV-land, Glee was the ceremony’s big winner, nabbing the musical/comedy show award, actor (Chris Colfer) and actress (Jane Lynch).
