Golden Globes Wrap Up
The 67th annual Golden Globes awards took place last night, and Avatar walked away top honors of Best Picture and Best Director, fueling speculation that it is gaining momentum going into the Oscar nomination race. Avatar and Crazy Heart picked up two awards each, but there were no lopsided wins this year.
Critical darling The Hurt Locker was shut out and went home empty handed. The Hurt Locker has been cleaning up top honors at Critic Circle awards nationwide. Up in the Air was nominated for six awards, but only won for Best Screenplay.
Veteran actors Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep won acting awards, and delivered particularly elegant and classy acceptance speeches.
On the television side, Dexter fared well, with John Lithgow and Michael C. Hall both winning acting awards. HBO’s film Grey Gardens won two awards as well. Mad Men won for Best Television Series, Drama and freshman series Glee won for best Television Series, Comedy or Musical.
