2011 Golden Globes: THE SOCIAL NETWORK Wins Big

The Social Network slaughtered the competition at last night's Golden Globes Awards Ceremony - taking him the gongs for Best Picture (Drama), Best Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin), Best Director (David Fincher) & Best Score (Reznor & Ross). There's now very little in the way of the Facebook creation movie about friendship, betrayal and the world's youngest billionaire from taking home the majority of the Oscars next month. Winning Best Picture Musical or Comedy was the family drama The Kids Are All Right (the only respectable film in that category) and veteran Annette Benning took home the Best Actress Award for that genre and film. Natalie Portman, of course, won Best Actress Motion Drama for Black Swan and will beat Benning to the Oscar next month. Colin Firth won Best Actor in Motion Picture Drama for The King's Speech whilst it was nice to see Paul Giamatti winning Best Actor Musical or Comedy for Barney's Version, beating out Johnny Depp twice (Alice in Wonderland, The Tourist). Could Giamatti make a last ditch Oscar push? Probably not. Meanwhile the Best Supporting Actor nods both went to The Fighter's Melissa Leo and Christian Bale - who both look strong for Oscar contention. In fact, the whole of the Awards ceremony played out exactly like everyone expected it to. They might as well host the Oscars nominations tomorrow and the event itself on Sunday as they seems to be no surprises on the horizon. The Awards season feels done. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hltptAG_wM Full Winners & Losers; Best Picture - Drama Winner: €œThe Social Network€ €œBlack Swan€ €œThe Fighter€ €œInception€ €œThe King€™s Speech€ Best Motion Picture - Musical or ComedyWinner: €œThe Kids Are All Right€ €œAlice in Wonderland€ €œBurlesque€ €œRed€ €œThe Tourist€ Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama Winner: Colin Firth, €œThe King€™s Speech€ Jesse Eisenberg, €œThe Social Network€ James Franco, €œ127 Hours€ Ryan Gosling, €œBlue Valentine€ Mark Wahlberg, €œThe Fighter€ Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama Winner: Natalie Portman, €œBlack Swan€ Halle Berry, €œFrankie and Alice€ Nicole Kidman, €œRabbit Hole€ Jennifer Lawrence, €œWinter€™s Bone€ Michelle Williams, €œBlue Valentine€ Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy Winner: Paul Giamatti, €œBarney€™s Version€ Johnny Depp, €œAlice in Wonderland€ Johnny Depp, €œThe Tourist€ Jake Gyllenhaal, €œLove and Other Drugs€ Kevin Spacey, €œCasino Jack€ Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy Winner: Annette Bening, €œThe Kids Are All Right€ Anne Hathaway, €œLove and Other Drugs€ Angelina Jolie, €œThe Tourist€ Emma Stone, €œEasy A€ Julianne Moore, €œThe Kids Are All Right€ Best Supporting Actress Winner: Melissa Leo, €œThe Fighter€ Amy Adams, €œThe Fighter€ Helena Bonham Carter, €œThe King€™s Speech€ Mila Kunis, €œBlack Swan€ Jacki Weaver, €œAnimal Kingdom€ Best Supporting Actor Winner: Christian Bale, €œThe Fighter€ Michael Douglas, €œWall Street: Money Never Sleeps€ Andrew Garfield, €œThe Social Network€ Jeremy Renner, €œThe Town€ Geoffrey Rush, €œThe King€™s Speech€ Best Director Winner: David Fincher, €œThe Social Network€ Darren Aronofsky, €œBlack Swan€ Tom Hooper, €œThe King€™s Speech€ Christopher Nolan, €œInception€ David O.
