Golden Globe Winners

Monday, August 1 by Elizabeth Pack

Competition was extraordinarily high to become one of this year's Golden Globe winners.  With hit films vying for top spots, it was anybody's game to win. Thankfully, no drug induced ballerinas tried to take out their competition at the award ceremony. 

  1. Best Motion Picture Drama. The winner is "The Social Network." It lost the Oscar, but it still remains one of the year's biggest hits.
  2. Best Actor, Motion Picture Drama. The winner is Colin Firth, "The King's Speech." It's hard to lose when you're playing a former king of England.
  3. Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical. The winner is "The Kids Are Alright". It seems that the "or musical" portion was added to accommodate "Burlesque," which never stood a chance against the flick about a lesbian led family.
  4. Best Actress, Motion Picture Drama. The winner is Natalie Portman, "Black Swan." Portman seeme unstoppable this award season. She was this year's golden goose, pardon the aviary pun.
  5. Best Actor, Motion Picture Comedy. The winner is Paul Giamatti, "Barney's Version." Few people know wh Paul Giamatti is, and even fewer people saw "Barney's Version," but it was actually a delightfully hilarious film that deserved its win.
  6. Best Television Series Comedy or Musical. The winner is "Glee." They should rename this award Best Television Musical until "Glee" goes off the air.
  7. Best Director. The winner is David Fincher, "The Social Network." This director may have been snubbed at the Oscars, but received his due at the Golden Globes.
  8. Best Supporting Actress, Motion Picture. The winner is Melissa Leo, "The Fighter." Leo barreled through award season this year. 
  9. Best Actor, Television Series Comedy or Musical. The winner is Jim Parsons, "Big Bang Theory." Let's all give a round of applause that the Globes did not inflate Matthew Morrison's ('"Glee'") ego more than it already is.  
  10. Best Actress, Television Series Comedy or Musical. The winner is Laura Linney, "The Big C." C stands for cancer in this dark, but successful comedy.
  11. Best Foreign Language Film. The winner is "In a Better World." Denmark's film not only scored the Golden Globe, but also the Oscar.
  12. Best Supporting Actress, Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television. The winner is Jane Lynch, "Glee." This category exists to recognize the glory that is Sue Sylvester.
  13. Best Screenplay. The winner is "The Social Network." This Golden Globe was a no brainer, as the film was almost entirely script driven.
  14. Best Actress, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television. The winner is Claire Danes, "Temple Grandin." A beautiful woman transforming into a not so beautiful woman will always win the gold.
  15. Best Actor, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television. The winner is Al Pacino, "You Don't Know Jack." After fifteen Golden Globe nominations and four wins, Pacino can do no wrong.
  16. Best Actress, Motion Picture, Comedy. The winner is Annette Benning, "The Kids Are Alright." Throughout award season, she was the only person who posed any real threat to Natalie Portman taking home the Oscar.
  17. Best Animated Film. The winner is "Toy Story 3." This amazing franchise won everything it touched.
  18. Best Original Score. The winner is Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, "The Social Network."  This film was as music driven as it was script driven.
  19. Best Original Song. The winner is "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" from "Burlesque." If Cher is singing the song, chances are, it's going to win.
  20. Best Television Series Drama. The winner is "Boardwalk Empire."  This HBO hit can boast the most expensive pilot episode in television history.
  21. Best Actor in a Television Series Drama. The winner is Steve Buscemi, "Boardwalk Empire." Buscemi's continuous flawless performances landed this show a double win.
  22. Best Supporting Actor, Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television. The winner is Chris Colfer, "Glee." Kurt Hummel sang his way into America's heart.
  23. Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television. The winner is "Carlos." This biopic scored well with critics everywhere.
  24. Best Actress in a Television Series, Drama. The winner is Katey Segal, "Sons of Anarchy." This show finally got some recognition during its third season.
  25. Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture. The winner is Christian Bale, "The Fighter." Bale's portrayal of Dicky will be remembered forever by movie goers.
