2012 Golden Globes Winners List

Globes

The 2012 Golden Globes were handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association last night with The Descendants and silent film The Artist taking Best Motion Picture Drama and Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, respectively.

The NYT reports that the love was spread around this year:

the Globes did little to help clear up a muddy sprint toward the Academy Awards, although some snubs may be telling. Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse,” which has developed a noticeable limp on the awards trail of late, was shut out, as was “The Ides of March,” a political thriller, and the baseball drama “Moneyball.”

The night’s biggest winner might have been someone who never took the stage: Harvey Weinstein, whose company is behind “The Iron Lady,” “My Week With Marilyn,” “W.E.” and “The Artist.” That mostly silent picture also took home awards for best actor (Jean Dujardin) and original score (Ludovic Bource).

It was nice to see Christopher Plummer take an award for the gay-themed indie film Beginners. Madonna took a song prize for her track Masterpiece.

Both their speeches, along with Clooney's, Streep's, and the rest of the winner list,

  1. Nothing in the Golden Globes interested me. George Clooney is still trying to convince the world that he's a heterosexual. Madonna uses a homophobic slur to denigrate Ricky Gervais. No wonder gay people aren't going to movies like they used to.

  2. So Hollywood could only give an award to a minor gay-themed movie that nobody's going to see? Gee, thanks, Hollywood....not.

  3. Two words killed these awards for me YEARS ago: Pia Zadora. These mean nothing other than self-promoting hype. I loved him in the original "The Office", but over the years, I've grown tired of Ricky Gervais. He's... just... not... funny. Like Will Ferrel not funny.

  4. Bleah! What a crap year for movies. I gagged through the trailer of The Descendants at the BLATANT Oscar-baiting by Clooney. I don't think I could be paid to watch it. Glad Jessica Lange won for AHS.

  5. Actually a great list of winners overall, with the exception of Meryl Streep--she was very good, but the movie around her was completely wrong-headed and superficial and unworthy of her, unlike "Julie and Julia." I'd much rather see Viola Davis or Michelle Williams take the Oscar, but since the Oscars have their heads up their ass 90% of the time, Streep will probably win.

  6. I love the fact that Meryl Streep won. She's brilliant in The Iron Lady. The film isn't as bad as some people make it look actually. It's the whole MT thing. If this were a movie about a fictional person then people would be raving about it. Hope she wins the Oscar. Although I don't mind Viola Davis winning either. Michelle Williams, on the other hand, is not someone I'd like to see winning...

  7. 50/50 was a COMEDY? Really? Just watched it this weekend & don't know that I'd classify it as a "comedy," and don't know that it warranted nominations. Glad to see Ides of March was at least included in the nominations, that was a nice, tight film.

  8. Christopher Plummer gave a very classy speech.
