68th Golden Globe Award Winners: Live Updates

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards will premier live tonight on NBC from 8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel hosted again by Ricky Gervais.  If you are unfortunate for some reason to not have TV, I’ll update you on the events and the winners and give you my opinion if that is anything of value. Catch the live updates when the Globes go live later after the break!

Ricky Gervais opening with his beer on the podium immediately. Which is pretty awesome and goes into a Charlie Sheen roast. Very nice.

The awards announcements begin:

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR

Christian Bale, The Fighter (WINNER)

Michael Douglas, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps

Andrew Garfield, The Social Network

Jeremy Renner, The Town

Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech

Rightly deserved. Bale put a lot into that role and was brilliantly well acted. I have no doubts he will win the Oscar as well.

BEST ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES, DRAMA

Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife

Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men

Piper Perabo, Covert Affairs

Katey Sagal, Sons of Anarchy (WINNER)

Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer

BEST MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

The Pacific

Carlos (WINNER)

Temple Grandin

You Don’t Know Jack

The Pillars of the Earth

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A SERIES, MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

Scott Caan, Hawaii Five-0

Chris Noth, The Good Wife

David Straithairn, Temple Grandin

Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family

Chris Colfer, Glee (WINNER)

BEST ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES, DRAMA

Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire (WINNER)

Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad

Michael C. Hall, Dexter

Jon Hamm, Mad Men

Hugh Laurie, House

I’d say this is deserving. I’ve only heard good things about this show. Good for him.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES, DRAMA

Boardwalk Empire (WINNER)

Dexter

The Good Wife

Mad Men

The Walking Dead

Season 4 of Mad Men was kind of iffy to me and the finale was sub par compared to its predecessors. I think it’s time to start watching Boardwalk Empire possibly.

BEST ORIGINAL SONG

“Bound To You” (Burlesque)

“Coming Home” (Country Strong)

“I See The Light” (Tangled)

“There’s a Place For Us” (The Chronicles of Narnia)

“You Haven’t Seen The Last of Me”  (Burlesque) (WINNER)

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE

Alexandre Desplat, The King’s Speech

Danny Elfman, Alice in Wonderland

A.R. Rahman, 127 Hours

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, The Social Network (WINNER)

Hans Zimmer, Inception

Trent Reznor and Ross both greatly deserve this for a uniquely imaginitive score that really sets a great tone and enables a strong presence in the film.

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM

Despicable Me

How to Train Your Dragon

The Illusionist

Tangled

Toy Story 3 (WINNER)

An obvious winner, although Tangled and HTTYD were also very great, but they can’t top the juggernaut that is Pixar. Lee Unkrich’s joke about Bieber and Hailee’s ages asking if they were born when the first Toy Story came out was hilarious.

BEST ACTRESS: COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Anette Bening, The Kids Are All Right (WINNER)

Anne Hathaway, Love and Other Drugs

Angelina Jolie, The Tourist

Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right

Emma Stone, Easy A

Loved this movie, and loved Annette Benning. She deserves a lot of credit for this movie and I’m glad she got recognized here.

BEST ACTOR IN A MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

Dennis Quaid, The Special Relationship

Ian McShane, The Pillars of the Earth

Édgar Ramírez, Carlos

Al Pacino, You Don’t Know Jack (WINNER)

Idris Elba, Luther

BEST ACTRESS IN A MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

Claire Danes, Temple Grandin (WINNER)

Hayley Atwell, The Pillars of the Earth

Jennifer Love Hewitt, The Client List

Judi Dench, Return to Cranford

Romola Gara, Emma

BEST SCREENPLAY

Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy, 127 Hours

Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg, The Kids Are All Right

Christopher Nolan, Inception

David Seidler, The King’s Speech

Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network (WINNER)

Seems like we are getting a preview of things to come for the Oscars. Such great writing from Aaron Sorkin; I bow down to you.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A SERIES, MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION

Hope Davis, Special Relationship

Jane Lynch, Glee (WINNER)

Kelly McDonald, Boardwalk Empire

Julia Stiles, Dexter

Sofia Vergara, Modern Family

I think they need to do a spin-off movie or TV show based on Jane Lynch’s character from Role Models.

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

Biutiful

The Concert

The Edge

I Am Love

In a Better World  (WINNER)

BEST ACTRESS IN A TELEVISION SERIES, COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Toni Collette, United States of Tara

Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie

Tina Fey, 30 Rock

Laura Linney, The Big C (WINNER)

Lea Michelle, Glee

BEST ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES, COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock

Steve Carell, The Office

Thomas Jane, Hung

Matthew Morrison, Glee

Jim Parsons, Big Bang Theory (WINNER)

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Amy Adams, The Fighter

Helena Bonham Carter, The King’s Speech

Mila Kunis, Black Swan

Melissa Leo, The Fighter (WINNER)

Jackie Weaver, Animal Kingdom

Whenever Leo was on the screen you couldn’t take your attention off of her because you never knew what her character would do next. The others in this category are rightfully nominated, but Leo was the clear winner.

BEST DIRECTOR

Darren Aronosfsky, Black Swan

David Fincher, The Social Network (WINNER)

Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech

Christopher Nolan, Inception

David O. Russell, The Fighter

As expected and continuing to sweep the awards, The Social Network is a force not to be reckoned with. Fincher is a filmmaking visionary and hopefully will finally win his first Oscar.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES, COMEDY OR MUSICAL

30 Rock

The Big Bang Theory

The Big C

Glee (WINNER)

Modern Family

Nurse Jackie

BEST ACTOR: COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland

Johnny Depp, The Tourist

Paul Giamatti, Barney’s Version (WINNER)

Jake Gyllenhaal, Love and Other Drugs

Kevin Spacey, Casino Jack

I’ve never heard of this movie, but Giamatti is always a great choice to watch. I’ll put it on my list to do.

BEST ACTRESS: DRAMA

Halle Berry, Frankie and Alice

Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole

Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone

Natalie Portman, Black Swan (WINNER)

Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine

She put everything into this role. Her emotion could be felt at all times and completely dominated the screen. Portman’s role was spectacular and I look forward to her Oscar win.

BEST PICTURE: COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Alice in Wonderland

Burlesque

The Kids Are All Right (WINNER)

Red

The Tourist

Absolutely deserving out of all of these nominees. This movie was a special little something that was a hidden gem this year. If you haven’t seen it, GO DO IT NOW!

BEST ACTOR: DRAMA

Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network

Colin Firth, The King’s Speech (WINNER)

James Franco, 127 Hours

Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine

Mark Wahlberg, The Fighter

Looks like Jesse is getting snubbed this year, but then again I have not seen The King’s Speech, which looked good, so I’ll have to check it out. We’ll see how the Oscars go, but so far, it seems pretty accurate as to how this year will end up.

BEST PICTURE: DRAMA

Black Swan

The Fighter

Inception

The King’s Speech

The Social Network (WINNER)

Not a big surprise here. The Social Network was genius filmmaking. Props to all of the nominees, but TSN was incredible in every aspect. The dialogue from Sorkin, the cinematography, acting, and even the VFX were fantastic.
