The Social Network Wins Big at 2011Golden Globe Awards Plus Full Winners List

Yes.. what a wonderful intern I am. Rushed back from an assignment, ate my breakfast and checked up on the ongoing Golden Globe awards. As I predicted, the awards distribution was pretty even.

The Social Network lead the winners with 4 wins including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Score. Followed by The Fighter with 2 wins by Christian Bale and Melissa Leo in the supporting role categories. The Kid's Are All Right won for Best Motion Picture- Comedy along with Annette Benning winning for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy. Black Swan, The King's Speech, Barney's Version each won 1 award for their lead actors.

Over in TV, Glee reigned supreme with 3 wins including Best TV Series- Comedy and acting awards for Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer. Mad Men's streak has been upset with Steve Buscemi's dark and gritty Boardwalk Empire which swept the dramatic awards.

The big WTF-ness in all of this is that Inception, one of the highest grossing movies and critically acclaimed movies of the year went home with zilch. Not a single win for Christopher Nolan and his cast. This is The Dark Knight all over again.Fuck you Hollywood Foreign Press!

I personally think Glee's overrated (except Jane Lynch), and that The Social Network shouldn't have won so many awards. I don't think its original score even deserved to win. Hans Zimmer's was better, IMO. Most of the nominees were pretty blah.

Wank's already starting with the Hollywood Foreign Press with some criticising Ricky Gervais but I think Hollywood pretty much should get over itself. I don't think the HFP people are that objective with that quote which has been floating around. (

Does it mean that if Ricky ever made an awesome film, I guess he won't be nominated. It just shows how biased they are and that it's a popularity contest basically - which I'm sure we all know already.
