The biggest stars of film and television gathered at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on the 15th of January for Hollywood’s “biggest party” and for the announcement of winners for 69th Annual Golden Globes.
Host Ricky Gervais jokes that The Golden Globes are to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton but really, the crowd and nominees have proved that it’s anything but scandalous:
And now, we present to you the people who took home the coveted awards and so much more!
Looks like Madonna‘s bursting in joy with her win, if you get what we mean, or see. She beat Mary J Blige and Elton John in the Best Original Song category, winning for her song Masterpiece from the film W.E. It was her second win with the first for the film, Evita. Earlier on the red carpet, Elton John said that Madonna stood “no f**king chance” at winning.
Talk about karma.
Michelle Williams, the ex lover of the late Heath Ledger and mother of their daughter together, took home the award of Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for “My Week With Marilyn”. She thanked her daughter for being her pillar of strength and inspiration. We’re sure Heath will be very proud of you, honey.
Since capturing millions of hearts worldwide in his role as Captain Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music”, Christopher Plummer continues to grace the silver screen year after year with his powerful acting. This year he wins the Best Supporting Actor award for Beginners.
In his speech, he thanked the cast and crew for making it “such an enchanting story”. He also added that his wife of 43 years “bravery and beauty haunts me still”. It’s wonderful to know that true love does exist in Hollywood.
Matt LeBlanc who plays himself on “Episodes”, a show about a British writing team who moves to Hollywood to remake their hit sitcom won the Golden Globe on Sunday for his self-referential role.
He beat out Alec Baldwin of NBC’s “30 Rock,” David Duchovny of Showtime’s “Californication,” Johnny Galecki of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” and Thomas Jane of HBO’s since-canceled “Hung” for the Best Actor in a TV Comedy. This was his fourth nomination, he was nominated once for “Joey” and twice for the hit series “Friends”.
You know what they say, third time the charm and that’s exactly what happened for mockumentary sitcom “Modern Family” which finally won its first Golden Globe award for Best Tv series- comedy or musical on third try.
Modern Family has received numerous awards from the Emmys and now it has finally gotten hold of the coveted Globe award. It beat last year’s winner “Glee” (Fox), and rookies “New Girl” (Fox), “Episodes” (Showtime) and “Enlightened” (HBO).
The dazzling Sofia Vergara accepted the award of behalf of the “family”.
Peter Dinklage celebrates winning a Golden Globe for his role in Game of Thrones, we think. Smile dude, you won!
“Downton Abbey”, which received rocket high ratings in 2011 has picked up the award for Best Mini-Series Or Motion Picture Made For Television.
Channing Tatum and Jessica Alba presented the Best Animated Feature Film award to The Adventures of Tintin, directed by the powerhouse Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson.
Both Kate Winslet and Leonardo diCaprio have proven themselves again and again to be more than starstruck lovers in “Titanic” which elevated them into the eye of the world.
Today, the former takes home the award for Best Performance by an actress in a Mini Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her role in “Mildred Pierce”. In her acceptance speech she said, “I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press for putting me in a category with such incredible, heavyweight actresses who I feel honored to be alongside.”
Winslet also gushed, “I share this with my beautiful children..I’m so proud to be their mom,” she said at the end of her speech.
Laura Dern who plays Amy Jellicoe, a formerly high-powered executive struggling to get her life back together after a series of reversals in the series Enlightenment won the award of Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical.
She beat out Zooey Deschanel in Fox’s “New Girl,” Tina Fey in NBC’s “30 Rock,” Laura Linney in Showtime’s “The Big C” and Amy Poehler in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” Dern has previously won Golden Globes for the 2008 HBO movie “Recount” and the 1992 HBO movie “Afterburn.”
Nothing makes a film crew prouder until their beloved director scores a win and we bet the crew of Hugo is celebrating as you read this because Martin Scorsese took home the Best Director award. The movie Hugo is based on the book “The Invention of Hugo Cabret” by Brian Selznick which tells of a young boy living in a Paris train station in the 1930s, and of his fascination with the turn-of-the-century silent movies by Georges Melies.
