Golden Globe Winners Announced

 

BEST ACTOR DRAMA
Jesse Eisenberg, “The Social Network”; Colin Firth, “The King’s Speech”; James Franco, “127 Hours”; Ryan Gosling, “Blue Valentine”; Mark Wahlberg, “The Fighter.” (As a card carrying member of the Jane Austen Society of North America, I said, “It’s about time. Firth should have won last year for ‘The Single Man.'”)

WINNER BEST PICTURE BEST COMEDY OR MUSICAL
“Alice in Wonderland,” “Burlesque,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Red,” “The Tourist.” 

BEST ACTRESS IN A FILM DRAMA
Halle Berry, “Frankie and Alice”; Nicole Kidman, “Rabbit Hole”; Jennifer Lawrence, “Winter’s Bone”; Natalie Portman, “Black Swan”; Michelle Williams, “Blue Valentine.” (This was an excellent movie, although one does not come out of the theatre feeling “refreshed.” It is very draining emotionally.)

WINNER BEST ACTOR IN A FILM COMEDY
Johnny Depp, “Alice in Wonderland”; Johnny Depp, “The Tourist”; Paul Giamatti, “Barney’s Version”; Jake Gyllenhaal, “Love and Other Drugs”; Kevin Spacey, “Casino Jack.”

WINNER BEST COMEDY OF TV
“30 Rock,” NBC; “The Big Bang Theory,” CBS; “The Big C,” Showtime; “Glee,” Fox; “Modern Family,” ABC; “Nurse Jackie,” Showtime.

WINNER BEST FILM DIRECTOR
Darren Aronofsky, “Black Swan”; David Fincher, “The Social Network”; Tom Hooper, “The King’s Speech”; Christopher Nolan, “Inception”; David O. Russell, “The Fighter.”

WINNER BEST SUPPORTING FILM ACTRESS
Melissa Leo, “The Fighter”; Helena Bonham Carter, “The King’s Speech”; Mila Kunis, “Black Swan”; Amy Adams, “The Fighter”; Jacki Weaver, “Animal Kingdom.” (Amy Adams looked gorgeous, but Helena Bonham Carter’s dress was ridiculous.)

WINNER BEST ACTOR TV COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”; Steve Carell, “The Office”; Thomas Jane, “Hung”; Matthew Morrison, “Glee”; Jim Parsons, “The Big Bang Theory.”

WINNER BEST ACTRESS TV COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Toni Collette, “The United States of Tara”; Edie Falco, “Nurse Jackie”; Tina Fey, “30 Rock”; Laura Linney, “The Big C”; Lea Michele, “Glee.”

WINNER BEST FILM SCREENPLAY
Danny Boyle, Simon Beaufoy, “127 Hours”; Lisa Cholodenko, Stuart Blumberg, “The Kids Are All Right”; Christopher Nolan, “Inception”; David Seidler, “The King’s Speech”; Aaron Sorkin, “The Social Network.”

WINNER ACTRESS TV MINISERIES OR MOVIE
Hayley Atwell, “Pillars of the Earth”; Claire Danes, “Temple Grandin”; Judi Dench, “Return to Cranford”; Romola Garai, “Emma”; Jennifer Love Hewitt, “The Client List.” (My sentimental favorite was Judi Dench, although both Romola Garai and Hayley Atwell were brilliant in their roles. I was surprised that “Pillars of the Earth” won nothing. It was one of the best of the season.)

WINNER ACTOR, TV MINISERIES OR MOVIE
Idris Elba, “Luther”; Ian McShane, “Pillars of the Earth”; Al Pacino, “You Don’t Know Jack”; Dennis Quaid, “The Special Relationship”; Edgar Ramirez, “Carlos.”

WINNER BEST ACTRESS, MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Annette Bening, “The Kids Are All Right”; Julianne Moore, “The Kids Are All Right”; Anne Hathaway, “Love and Other Drugs”; Angelina Jolie, “The Tourist”; Emma Stone, “Easy A.” (I would have taken Julianne Moore for the trophy. How some of these movies fit into the “musical or comedy” category makes no sense.)

WINNER BEST ANIMATED FILM
— Animated Film: “Toy Story 3,” “The Illusionist,” “How to Train Your Dragon,” “Despicable Me,” “Tangled.” (“Toy Story” was a sentimental favorite. I was partial to “Tangled.”)

WINNER ORIGINAL SONG
“Bound to You” (written by Samuel Dixon, Christina Aguilera, Sia Furler), “Burlesque”; “Coming Home” (written by Bob DiPiero, Tom Douglas, Hillary Lindsey, Troy Verges), “Country Strong”; “I See the Light,” (written by Alan Menken, Glenn Slater), “Tangled”; “There’s a Place for Us” (written by Carrie Underwood, David Hodges, Hillary Lindsey), “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”; “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me,” (written by Diane Warren), “Burlesque.”

WINNER BEST ACTOR DRAMA
Steve Buscemi, “Boardwalk Empire”; Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad”; Michael C. Hall, “Dexter”; Jon Hamm, “Mad Men”; Hugh Laurie, “House.” (Again, sentimentally, I would take Hugh Laurie, although his show has lost some momentum. However, I had bet on Michael C. Hall.

WINNER BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR, SERIES, MINISERIES OR MOVIE:
Scott Caan, “Hawaii Five-O”; Chris Colfer, “Glee”; Chris Noth, “The Good Wife”; Eric Stonestreet, “Modern Family”; David Strathairn, “Temple Grandin.”

WINNER BEST MINISERIES OR MOVIE “Carlos,” Sundance Channel; “The Pacific,” HBO; “Pillars of the Earth,” Starz; “Temple Grandin,” HBO; “You Don’t Know Jack,” HBO. (Remember this is the Foreign Press awards. Most of us in the U.S. would have chosen one of the others.)

WINNER BEST ACTRESS IN A DRAMA, TV
— Actress, Drama: Julianna Margulies, “The Good Wife”; Elisabeth Moss, “Mad Men”; Piper Perabo, “Covert Affairs”; Katey Sagal, “Sons of Anarchy”; Kyra Sedgwick, “The Closer.”
