Tonight is the big night for the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Whether you are just tuning in or have been watching the whole night, I’ll be providing a live updated list of the awards winners just in case you missed anything. The Artist won the big ticket at the Critic’s Choice Awards earlier this week, but who have the Hollywood Foreign Press Association picked tonight? The bigger question is who will Ricky Gervais humiliate?
Starting off with a big cheers, Ricky Gervais opens up the ceremony.

- Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
- Howard Shore – Hugo
- John Williams – War Horse
We couldn’t have a back to back win for Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross could we?! From all the complaints about The Artist using music from Vertigo I’m surprised it won.

- Kate Winslet – Carnage
That’s kinda cool that Marilyn Monroe won the same award over 50 years ago in 1960. It was either going to go to Theron or Williams, both were incredible, but it should go to Theron as I have no idea how MWWM was a comedy or musical – the same could be said about The Tourist.

- Puss In Boots
I’m actually kind of surprised at this win. Rango has been a frontrunner for awhile now and Tintin came out of no where. I guess I’ll have to go see it to see what the big deal is. Then again this is also the Golden Globes.

Before the best picture nominee in drama is announced I’m going to go out on a limb to predict that the winner will come down to Hugo or The Descendants.

- The Descendants (Fox Searchlight Pictures) (WINNER)
- The Help (DreamWorks Pictures)

I’m glad to see The Descendants win this one. Now the real awards season can begin: the hunt for the Oscar. The Academy Awards will be February 26 this year.
The big let down of the night was Gervais’ comedy. It wasn’t as dark as I would have hoped, but it was alright. Seth Rogen probably takes the cake for funniest moment with Kate Beckinsale.
