January 16, 2011

Golden Globe Awards

The winners of the HFPA's 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the precursor to the Academy Awards, were announced tonight at an exciting ceremony held at The Beverly Hilton hotel. We will be updating this list below with all of the film-related winners once they're announced during the ceremony's live broadcast. It's very tough to root for any one film this year because there are a lot of good ones (just look at Best Drama - Black Swan, Inception, The King's Speech, The Social Network), but I'm certainly curious to see who ends up winning. I'm not expecting any major upsets, but you never with the HFPA. Read on for the 2011 results!

What do you think of the winners so far? How is the ceremony going with Ricky Gervais hosting the second year in a row? Are the winners tonight an early indicator for the Oscars? What film(s) are you rooting for?

Altogether not a bad year, honestly this was mostly what I expected, give or take Paul Giamatti winning for Best Actor and In a Better World for Best Foreign Film. Otherwise, I'm happy to see David Fincher finally win and The Social Network take home so many awards, and I'm especially excited for Natalie Portman and Colin Firth both wining, as I wanted them to win the moment I stepped out of both of those films. So what do you think - will The King's Speech or The Social Network take the Oscar next? Is it Fincher's year?

All hail Bale! Great news! next stop Oscars!

OSCAR .. is almost a sure thing ..he was great in The fighter...

Sakyo on Jan 17, 2011


Fingers crossed! He deserves it!

It's about fucking time, too! Now only Sam Rockwell needs to win one and I can die a happy geek.

glad Portman and Williams got awarded. Bale deserved it and I'm stoked he took home the award. did he have a speech? if so how was it?

Reznor and Ross deserved it. Ross did a stupendous job. Toy Story 3 well deserved!

Aaron Sorkin won best screenplay...I really think David Seidler should have taken it.

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


Johnny Depp for the best actor. EVER!! And of course the best director is Christopher Nolan. His 'Inception' was great!

starralex76 on Jan 17, 2011


Although his films are well made Nolan is a decent filmmaker. Whereas Fincher is a great one.

Jazz on Jan 18, 2011


I loved Melissa Leo's speech she was so happy.

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


Correction "You haven't seen the last of me" was the winner for best orignal song

TIMO on Jan 17, 2011


Woops, just fixed it, sorry about that. I really wanted Tangled to win...

Alex Billington on Jan 17, 2011


Alex "Tangled" was good but it was not even on the same par as "Toy Story 3". That film was wonderful. Disney and infact all the other animation companies out there don't even come close to what Pixar make. I know Disney distribute Pixar's films. But Pixar are the ones that make them so great.

Last Son on Jan 17, 2011


so happy Paul Giamatti beat out Depp. Alice and Wonderland and The Tourist are two very bland performances. Glad Portman took it, well deserved. and did everyone hear that laugh after the poke at her fiancé? Glad Firth took it he's just awesome. I hope he gets that Harley. It was awesome to see Michael Douglas, glad he's not ill anymore, I hope it the cancer stays away. The Social Network wasn't my pick for Best Picture...I enjoyed the movie, but I was pulling for Inception or The Kings Speech...but none the less, congrats Fincher. What is with Gervias and the need to announce he's an atheist? what does he want a medal? anyways he was great and funny as hell...but his stand-up is crumbling.

I'm pretty sure she was laughing at his hair (it looked ridiculous :P). And what's with the "he loves sleeping with me" joke? Followed by that laugh...strange moment...

It's great that The Social Network got all the awards because it was truly a fantastic film but i just wish that Inception won at the awards because A. I enjoyed Inception a whoe lot more and B.Christopher Nolan needs some awards anyways here's hoping chris gets some recognition at the oscars or that Chris blows us all away again in 2012 when he brings us The Dark Knight Rises and it's such a perfect film they'll have to give him the award

max s. on Jan 17, 2011


it's Atticus Ross

Jfzagorski on Jan 17, 2011


You've see the winners, now meet the winning Golden Globe trends that are sure ... wardrobe in 2011!

Tong Chaiwichit on Jan 17, 2011


I was hoping Inception will win best drama, or best director... or at least best screenplay (not a single award?), but I was expecting The Social Network to win it all and I'm not upset (maybe because this is GGA), because it's a great movie. My big disappointment was Hans Zimmer... he is one of the best composers these days and he doesn't get enough recognition. Inception's score was perfect. Anyway Reznor and Ross did a great job. Now let's wait for the Oscars!

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


while i am a fan of hans zimmers work i thought his effort for inception was pretty standard (it did the trick but it didnt have its own unique feel like his earlier work e.g pirates of the Caribbean, last samurai, The holiday (which may be a half shit film but the soundtrack is great), gladiator or even black hawk down. But my main reason for not caring that he didn't win this year is because there was better soundtracks from the phenomenal tron soundtrack (I went back and watched it again just for the soundtrack) to the perfectly fitting social network one and ofc the kings speeches one. It had feirce (and better if you ask me) competition.

Matthew Sam Russell on Jan 17, 2011


The Tron soundtrack was indeed incredible... and the others you mentioned as well. I do appreciate their quality. Maybe I'm just upset because HZ is not wining as much as I want him to win. OK, he received 4 GG, but only 1 Oscar??? That's irritating. I want some oscars for me pall hans!!!

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


I don't give a rats ass that "The Social Network" won. To me and a lot of others out there Christopher Nolan's "Inception" was by far the best film of 2010. These award shows are sh*t. Afterall I didn't expect "Inception" to win. After all "The Dark Knight" was avoided two years ago so nothing surprises me.

Last Son on Jan 17, 2011


I completely agree with you. "Inception" was a brilliant film... I absolutely loved everything about it. From Christopher Nolan to the cast.. to the clothes they wore in the movie lol. I am terribly upset that "inception" did not win. The whole movie was original and creative. Whats creative about "The Social Network"? Its a biography on screen.... whew what a hard screenplay to write!

Naji842002 on Jan 17, 2011


Exactly. And yes, the dialogues are quirky, but the internet is full of quirky comments. And the story of Facebook is interesting on itself.

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


There's nothing really special about Inception. It's a good flick. Social Network is better made film and Fincher is a better filmmaker than Nolan.

Smesh on Jan 18, 2011


I really like the Social Network (it was in my top ten list for last year), however I didn't think it was good enough to win Best Picture and I still believe that the Oscar will go to The King's Speech. As for people saying that Inception should have won, I will have to say that it's wishful thinking at best. I really like the film as well (it was actually in my top five), however it has the giant label of "science fiction" stamped on it and the sad fact is that genre films are not yet accepted enough by the "elite" to actually have a chance of winning major awards (though it is a step up that they are being nominated now).

Sean Kelly on Jan 17, 2011


I'm pulling for The Kings Speech, I would love for that to take Best Picture.

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


You may be British or have a connection to the British anyway to like that movie over the other on the list. loll! Colin is a fine actor, mind you but come on!!!

International on Jan 17, 2011


You know, I consider that to be a very bigoted comment. I may have a British background (Scottish/Irish), but it in NO WAY has any influence over the films I see or like!!! In fact, I decided to see The King's Speech after it won the People's Choice award at TIFF and I truly believe it to be deserving of Best Picture. I like the other films no less, but I have to choose a film I believe in.

Sean Kelly on Jan 17, 2011


Xerxexx - That laugh was way awkward.

Traveler on Jan 17, 2011


it was wasn't it? she over laughed, she was a mixture of happy, nervous, and excited.

It was one of the most embarassing moments of my life...

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


it was quite a laugh.

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


YES for the Social Network and everything it swept! Much deserved.That's another wonderful result for Kevin Spacey who produced the movie. Of course my girl Portman had to get this one too! Another YES for my boy Bale...I'm getting emotional right now. loll! Now to the Oscars!!!!

Abundantguest on Jan 17, 2011


The offers will pile up for my boy baby Bale and more power to him for choosing the right ones

Abundantguest on Jan 17, 2011


The Social Network winning all these awards is a step forward for these award shows. Any other year The King's Speech would have won but they're willing to award it to a better contemporary film. This is actually a step forward to a movie like Inception winning.

Moon on Jan 17, 2011


Umm despite inception being good (very good), comparatively it doesn't stack up against other releases this year. And while i agree that these awards are seeming better than they usually are. I don't think i would have had a problem if the fighter, true grit or the kings speech would have won more instead.

Matthew Sam Russell on Jan 17, 2011


At least none of the horrible nominees walked away with anything.

Mountain Top Movies on Jan 17, 2011


Am I the only one who didn't like The Social Network or Inception?

Greg L on Jan 17, 2011


yes u are. lol

i have no name on Jan 18, 2011


Pretty much.

John Doe on Jan 28, 2011


I hate them also.

How did the horrible music of the Social Network win the Golden Globe for original score when it was up against Elfman and Zimmer. Even the music of Rahman and Desplat was way better than the Social Network's horrid score. It such a popularity contest. No one cares about the quality of the music anymore. 🙁

LH on Jan 17, 2011


The Social Network score is not horrible. And that comes from someone who thinks that the movie itself it's a bit overrated. It works better alongside the movie (of course, that's very important for awards) than just listening the soundtrack on a player. As much as I wanted Zimmer to win I can't denie the work of Reznor and Ross. The score fits like a glove (and Zimmer's score as well :D). I'm not saying you're wrong... I just disagree.

well for Natalie girl can react to touching themselves like she could so she earned the award...

Jericho on Jan 17, 2011


Agree with you. I also glad about Natalie. She worth to be awarded

Bale's speech was fantastic!

Anonymous on Jan 17, 2011


Really kinda sad....a film about "Space Box" beats out "Inception" and "King's Speech"

RandallM on Jan 18, 2011


I'm so damn happy too!

John Doe on Jan 28, 2011


Inception should've came out with at least one golden globe. It's very complex, and requires you to actually think about it, which is different from most movies. Yet maybe some thought it was too complicated, but Inception was a brilliant idea that was well executed. I'm disappointed.

Kyle on Jan 19, 2011


Pretty exactly as I expected. The Social Network continues to dominate the competition.

John Doe on Jan 28, 2011


*Pretty much exactly as I expected*
