George Clooney Snags A Golden Globe

George Clooney Snags A Golden Globe

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?

RE: Yay Hugo and The Artist!
L: superdan The E! coverage was almost non-existent. 5 minutes of ads for every 30 seconds of actual ceremony footage, cutting away abruptly presumably whenever anyone said anything interesting. I gave up after about 40 minutes. Worst coverage I've ever seen for anything, and I remember watching early 90's Brit Awards. E! can get knotted. orse than Sky's coverage over the years? God....elighted to see A Separation receive its fully deserved accolade. Hopefully BAFTA & Oscar repeat th More

Best Comedy/Musical Abit of a random catergory. Why does 'musicals' and 'Comedies' need to be lumped in the same catergory?. More

Comedy/Musical
This is what annoys me about the Golden Globes, My Week with Marylin was not a comedy/musical, it was definately a drama, a pretty light drama, but still a drama! they always lump anything that isn't a gritty macho drama i with the comedy/musical section! although i did think it was a well deserved gong for Michelle Williams.
