Golden Globes 2011: The winners

GoldenGlobe.jpgI've not been drawn to the awards season this year as much as previous, well I am for the big ones, the Globes, the BAFTAs, the Oscars, but not so much the smaller critics announcements and every single nomination list going, and the reason has been the continual blanket coverage by The Social Network (Filmstalker review).

It has bothered me that there have been some great films out there the past year and yet there's so much being given to that film and it seems to be sweeping the awards right, left and centre. The good news is though that when it comes down to the winners that's not the case, and the Golden Globes this year have proven just that.

The 2011 Golden Globes have announced their 2010 winners, yes I always get confused with that too, and while the media are proclaiming a sweep of awards to The Social Network it's really not as total as I thought it would be.

I have been following the critics awards on the way here, and that has been rather disheartening. You just have to look at the announcements together to see the sweep across the board. However with the announcements of the winners of the Golden Globes last night, hope has returned that some of these other films might just get a shoe in.

Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against a film making a clean sweep, or The Social Network (Filmstalker review) itself, I really did like it, I just didn't think it was the best film of the year.

Let's see what the Globes thought was with the announcement of winners through The Guardian.

It's great to see Colin Firth winning, as it is Natalie Portman for I believe her performance is completely worth it and she may well take it all the way to the Oscars. Undoubtedly Firth will be taking the BAFTA for his performance, something I'm sure he's much more excited about. I loved his acceptance speech, although I'm not sure if everyone over there got it at the time and perhaps thought he was just a bumbling Englishman.

Paul Giamatti and Annette Bening are worthy winners, and good to see The Fighter getting a few mentions (I've just got preview tickets to see it this very morning). Nothing for Inception (Filmstalker review)?

I might as well keep going with the television winners, and there are two reasons that I'm doing this. One is for the fact that Sons of Anarchy won an award, and more deserving for Katey Sagal who is superb in the show, and the other that Carlos is mentioned, both hugely deserving. Good to see that entertainment isn't overriding the powerful drama.
