globes live 2010 Golden Globe Award Winners

I’m sure if you’re at all interested in which movies win what at each of the big award ceremonies, you caught the 67 Annual Golden Globe Awards last night on NBC. It was a fun show (as the Globes usually are compared to the Oscars), with some predictable/expected winners and some pretty major shocks.

Rickey Gervais was an absolute hoot as the host, jabbing in and out with often controversial but almost always funny gags which ranged from a Mel Gibson drinking joke (“I like a drink as much as the next man. Unless the next man is Mel Gibson.”) to one about Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler (“It’s Rachel from Friends and that bloke out of 300.”). Great stuff from a great host choice.

I won’t waste any time just now giving my thoughts on who I think should have won and so forth, why don’t we just get straight to the awards before we move onto that? So without further ado here are the full list of nominees and winners from the 67th Annual Golden Globes Awards:

Here’s just a few of my thoughts on what and who won:

Finally Michael C. Hall gets his long overdue Golden Globe for his performance on Dexter (this was his fifth nomination!), as well as John Lithgow winning for his chilling portrayal of the Trinity Killer on the same show. It was nice to see Jeff Bridges get that sort of recognition for Crazy Heart, even though I think everyone expected it to be George Clooney who would win.

Speaking of which, Up in the Air only won one award (Best Screenplay) and I suspect Jason Reitman, Clooney and others were a bit miffed once the whole thing was over. Inglourious Basterds should have won more (Christoph Waltz Best Supporting Actor award was a no-brainer), as should The Hurt Locker (it didn’t get any!); which brings us to two big awards, Best Drama and Best Director: Avatar came out the victor on both accounts. Personally, I love the film, but did it deserve it more than other smaller films like Up in the Air or The Hurt Locker? I’ll let you guys duke it out in the comments section icon smile 2010 Golden Globe Award Winners

Lastly, the highlights for me were Michael C. Hall winning, Robert Downey Jr’s hilarious “non-thanking” speech, and Martin Scorsese winning the Cecile B. Demille Award – well deserved, sir.

Thoughts on the winners and the overall show of this year’s Golden Globes?

  1. Obviously most people will want to talk about Avatar, but my biggest issue is with the tv stuff. Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock? A show no one watches! David Duchovny deserved that by a million miles.
    And Glee? Instead of Entourage!

    And Sandra Bullock winning an award with the words “best” and “actress” in them? The world really has gone mad!

    Gervais was great though.

  2. You think Californication has that more viewers than 30 Rock? You're crazy. And Entourage stopped being good two seasons ago.

    Baldwin is the best comedic actor on TV right now. And Glee was a refreshingly original show.

    Entourage? Come on!

    Gervais was great though…

  3. I was extremely happy with RDJ winning for “Sherlock Holmes”. I honestly didn't expect him to, but wanted him to. My biggest thing is that James Cameron won Best Director and “Avatar” won Best Picture Drama. It was definitely not the best picture of the year. Also, James Cameron is as pompous as he was during his acceptance speech for “Titanic” and you could tell some people in the room were thinking the same thing when he asked them to “Give it up for yourselves!”

    That's all I'll say about “Avatar”. I was glad “Up” won Best Animated, but that came as no surprise. Also I was glad Meryl Streep won for “Julie & Julia”. She was truly wonderful in that. Also, Ricky Gervais was brilliant as I knew he would be. Hopefully they'll let him do it again next year or host other award shows in the future.

  4. I was rooting for Duchovny as well, as Californication is my favorite thing on television right now. The last season was pretty weak, though, aside from the excellent finale (and it would have been odd to give him an award for Best Actor in a COMEDY Series on the strength of that wonderfully bleak episode alone).

  5. You and I, we were born to disagree.

    Glee, original? No. It is there to service the High School Musical crowd.

    I actually have no problem with Baldwin as an actor, I think he is pretty good, but every year Duchovny puts in an amazing performance as Hank Moody. I love Californication, best US comdey for years.

    And Entourage, that show always cheers me up whenever I am down, I admit it has lost its way a little bit but it is still a great show. Albeit held up by Piven and Dillon

  6. I have to admit this last season wasnt great, but it had its moments, and that last episode was amazing. Duchovny really hit itout of the park with that one, his best acting to date easily.

  7. I was pleased RDJ won as well, but does Holmes really count as a comedy?

  8. im just glad UP won Best Animated Feature Film!! :)

  9. I think Gervais should write & host his own annual make-believe awards show called “My Big Golden Head-Like-a-Globe Award.” Invite the most naive, smug, self-absorbed celebrities to sit at floor level while a hand-picked crew of attention-seeking smart-asses sit in the balcony with corresponding controllers for fart machines located under each celeb's chair.

  10. yeah i think it deserved to be awarded because of its box office success and triumph in hollywood

  11. Oops, I clicked 'Like', instead of 'Reply' :P
    But those were my thoughts exactly. I don't think Sherlock Holmes should have been considered a comedy. Yeah it had its humorous moments, but don't all movies? I think that was a miscategorization on their part. But RDJ was great in the movie.

  12. This may shock and appall some of you: but I didn't think Avatar deserved the win for director OR film. I thought The Hurt Locker should've won on both counts.

  13. The Hurt Locker should have won for Best Motion Picture – Drama, and Kathryn Bigelow should have gotten the Best Director win, period.

    Instead, Avatar, which I call “Titanic: Take 2″, won for Best Motion Picture – Drama, and James Cameron wins for Best Director. I'm sorely tempted to believe Avatar's win was a triumph of glossy, shallow style and overinflated hype over serious substance and thoughtful intelligence… and, AFAIK, I could be right (then again, I could be wrong, too).

    Also, even though I was hoping RDJ would win, why did Sherlock Holmes wind up in the Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical category? If Avatar is a drama, judging by the way films are categorized at the GG's, then Sherlock Holmes is a buddy comedy, and although there was some humor in it, it definitely wasn't a comedy.

  14. And this may shock YOU, Kofi, but I thought that Cameron probably deserved best director – because Avatar must have been an utterly monumental project to manage.

    Of course I haven't seen The Hurt Locker yet…(soon).

  15. I'm going to agree with you on that, Vic. I have yet to see The Hurt Locker, but I can't IMAGINE how much work it was for Cameron to put Avatar together. While the plot may have been thin, the whole movie flowed seamlessly and it was very hard to not believe the CGI characters and sets were real. As for Best Picture, I think Star Trek and Sherlock Holmes were better overall films.

  16. I agree with Cameron winning best director. He had to put a LOT of work into Avatar and it paid off big time. However, I'm with Kofi on best film. I think Hurt Locker was far superior in that sense.

  17. LOVED to see that Michael C. Hall and John Lithgow won in their respective categories. Was disappointed (but not surprised) to find out that Dexter as a show lost in its category. It should have won, imo.

    Was glad to see Bullock won for The Blind Side.

    Despite my disagreement about Avatar as a wonderful film, Cameron probably did deserve best director. But the film definitely should NOT have taken home best picture. Ugh.

    Enjoyed RDJ's acceptance speech. The guy cracks me up.

    While Gervais make me LOL on several occasions during the broadcast (as he often does in his films), I felt that he stepped over the line a few times and did not appreciate some of his remarks.

  18. Cameron deserved the Best Director award, but I don't think Best Picture should have gone to Avatar. That's barely dramatic, but then again, this whole Drama, Comedy/Musical divisory thing has always been lame to me. But my biggest complaint was (500) Days of Summer losing to The Hangover. Really? C'mon!

  19. Robert Downey Jr. was absolutely adorable. My tv was out and my computer was down (ahhhh!) so I had to play catch up today. Thanks for the live blogging – it's a groovy thing and you guys were funny to read, even belatedly. It was nice to finally catch the video of RDJ and his “non-thanking”…the guy is hilarious and brilliant. I am a bit confused that it was for a “comedy”…although the film had funny moments, I wouldn't have put it in that category.

    I'm also eternally stoked that Christophe Waltz nabbed one – he was amazing. I only had him a slight edge over Tucci, though – both were award-worthy performances, in my opinion. “Up” was another that I was pleased about.

    Usually nobody wins that I want and I end up ornery. This was a treat this year. Well done to the SR gang on the coverage, guys.

  20. Don't know if this is knit-picking, but isn't the job of project management that of the Producer? The director's job is the creative one. Don't know if Cameron produced and directed, but regardless, there isn't a best producer award (though perhaps there should be one, considering the importance of the position).

  21. I agree with Vic that Cameron definately deserved best director award. Director is in charge of everything, and everything means everything. With Avatar there is a lot of everything.
    now for best picture, the way I see it, it was more of a “Thank you for bringing in all these people and helping the industry, here is your award James” Truthfully, in that category Up in the Air is waaaaayyyy better than Avatar. The White Ribbon which won for best foreign is better and even Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is better than Avatar. IMO that is.

  22. I did not care for The Hurt Locker, too much real life if you ask me. I like my movies to be escapism, not reminders of the absurd situations politicians put the world in.

  23. I like Baldwin, but I was hoping Duchovny would take it, too. I have loved Californication since it started, and his acting is just incredible. He's come a long way from X-Files.

    Kofi: I can dig where you're coming from, but for me it's not how popular/successful the show is, it's the quality of the actors/story, etc. I think Baldwin is hilarious, but he's gotten his kudos already…and I think it would have been nice to Duchovny his moment in the sun.

  24. Ok first of all there should be only one Best movie category!
    The division of movies is illogical and forceful.
    Frankly the real conundrum would have surfaced if there was only one category.
    Which movie do you pick Avatar, Hurt Locker, Sherlock Holmes or Up in the Air!

    I am going to be flaked for this but I would still pick Avatar above all other movies!
    Hurt Locker and UITA were both well made movies with current issues. Sherlock Holmes was for me an all out fun movie about a genius. HOWEVER Avatar takes the cake when it comes to movie experience! Sure the plot is thin and cliched BUT a movie reels you rarely in like Avatar did last year to a worldwide audience.
    It deserves the award and Cameron for Best Director!
    Cheers!

    You´re wrong
    The Hurt Locker sucked
    Avatar should have won the BAFTAS instead of The Hurt Locker
    Quentin Tarantino should have won the Oscar, DGA and Critics Choice instead of Kathryn Bigelow
    Inglorious Basterds should have won the Oscar, PGA and Critics Choice instead of The Hurt Locker
    Kathryn Bigelow didn´t deserve the BAFTA
