69th Golden Globe Winners

GoldenGlobe.jpgThe Golden Globes for 2012, or 2011 whichever way you'd like to look at it, came and went and the awards are an interesting list, a list which I'd say are rewarding quality this year. It's a strong list with some great titles and names on there and if it's any indication of other awards to come then it's looking like a good year for some well deserving films.

Still, I don't know if it's just me, but I'm feeling a bit lacklustre with the awards this year, I wonder if that's a reflection of the year gone past. See what you think when you see these titles.

You can see the complete list of winners and nominees for The Golden Globe Awards over at the official site, I never know whether to call them the 2012 or the 2011 awards, sure they are held in 2012, but the awards are for films which, for the most part, are all from 2011.

Anyway, I shan't bring that up again, let's concentrate on the fact that these are the 69th awards. Here are the winners:
