70th Golden Globe Winners

GoldenGlobe.jpgThe winners of the Golden Globes 2013 for 2012 have been announced in the usual extravaganza of designers, applauding, back slapping and of overrunning and edited out speeches. Really that describes just about every awards ceremony there is, however it's not a bad thing because there's a strong list of winners this year.

The surprises come at the top of the list with the Best Drama where we discover that the winner is not Lincoln, a film which I expected would be first in line even before anyone had seen it, after all it is all about America, an American icon and directed by an American icon of cinema, in fact the winner is...

...Argo. Now that really is a big surprise and a great one too and the surprises kept coming with Ben Affleck winning Best Director too. I really enjoyed the film and it's a great accolade for Affleck who, as he referred to in the opening of his speech, was not nominated for Best Director in the Academy Awards.

Strange things happen when coming to the Best and Supporting Actor and Actress categories where we see Best Actor and Actress without a single entry for Les Misérables, and rightfully so since Best Actor and Actress for a Musical or Comedy have their own categories where Les Misérables won actor with Hugh Jackman but lost actress to Jennifer Lawrence instead picking up Best Supporting Actress with Anne Hathaway.

Now I don't have a problem with who won, what I'm confused about is that there are separate categories for musical and comedy for actor and actress but not supporting and so those supporting in dramatic films are much more limited in the nominations. It seems strange to me that if they are going to separate out on set of Actor/Actress categories that they don't do the same with the Supporting ones.
