Golden Globe Award Winners

At one point during Sunday's Golden Globes, things looked very dark for anyone not on HBO: Led by John Adams , the network swept all the early TV awards. Finally, halfway into the night, a loss for the cable giant: Alec Baldwin won best comedic actor for 30 Rock . Then Mad Men got in the game, winning best drama at the end of the night. John Adams won four awards, the most in the TV categories. Film had its standouts as well. Four wins for Slumdog Millionaire and two for Kate Winslet immediately catapulted them to Oscar front-runner status. Slumdog won not only best picture, but best director for Danny Boyle - plus best screenplay and best score. Winslet won for best lead and best supporting dramatic actress for Revolutionary Road and The Reader , respectively. Heath Ledger won posthumously for best supporting actor in a motion picture, and Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan accepted the award on his behalf. John Adams claimed awards for best TV miniseries or movie, lead actor Paul Giamatti, actress Laura Linney, and supporting actor Tom Wilkinson. Laura Dern won best supporting actress in a series, miniseries or TV movie for Recount, Gabriel Byrne claimed best actor in a drama for In Treatment , and Anna Paquin won in the female category for True Blood . Mad Men's Jon Hamm and January Jones lost in the best dramatic actor and actress category, but Hamm kept his sense of humor. When the entire cast was asked if they would be returning for Season 3, he answered in a deadpan: "Oh, I'm not." Really, it was a joke: The show returns this summer. The Wrestler was the second-most awarded film after Slumdog, earning best dramatic actor for Mickey Rourke and best song for Bruce Springsteen. Rourke seemed awed by his major comeback after more than a decade in film limbo. When a reporter reminded him that he had been out of commission for more than 10 years, he corrected that it was more like 14. For a complete list of winners check This . Source here
