Dreamgirls, Ugly Betty, Babel, Among Winners at Golden Globes

But by far my favorite moment of last night’s Golden Globes was Sacha Baron Cohen‘s acceptance speech for Borat, referencing perhaps the most repulsively hilarious scene of the year:

Borat_1“This movie was a life-changing experience. I saw some amazing, beautiful, invigorating parts of America but I saw some dark parts of America, an ugly side of America, a side of America that rarely sees the light of day. I refer ofcourse to the anus and testicles of my co-star Ken Davitian. Ken, when I was in that scene and I stared down and saw your two wrinkled golden globes on my chin, I thought to myself, ‘I’d better win a bloody award for this.’ And then, when my 300 pound co-star decided to sit on my face and squeeze the oxygen from my lungs, I was faced with a choice death or to breathe in the air that had been trapped in a small pocket between his buttocks for 30 years. Kenneth, if it was not for that rancid bubble, I would not be here today.”

Well-deserved nods for Grey’s Anatomy and Ugly Betty. It was also great to see newcomers Jennifer Hudson and America Ferrera win. The full winner list can be found here
