Golden Globe Winners


Once again, the world pretends to care about awards handed out based on a poll of around 100 foreign reporters based in Hollywood.  The stars all turn out for this so it makes for good TV.

The winners:


Best Drama: “Argo”

Best Comedy or Musical: “Les Misérables”

Best Actress, Drama: Jessica Chastain, “Zero Dark Thirty”

Best Actor, Daniel Day-Lewis, “Lincoln”

Best Actress, Comedy or Musical: Jennifer Lawrence, “Silver Linings Playbook”

Best Actor, Comedy or Musical: Hugh Jackman, “Les Misérables”

Best Director: Ben Affleck, “Argo”

Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway, “Les Misérables”

Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz, “Django Unchained”

Best Actress, Drama: Claire Danes, “Homeland”

Best Actress, Comedy or Musical: Lena Dunham, “Girls”

Best Actor, Miniseries or Movie: Kevin Costner, “Hatfields & McCoys”

I suppose it’s vaguely interesting that Affleck won for direction as he wasn’t even nominated for an Oscar.

“Robert Downey Jr., an actor so versatile that he played Iron Man in 3 separate movies …”

    I will go with Daniel Day Lewis and Anne Hathaway, the other movie selections are questionable at best although I have not seen Zero Dark Thirty . I don’t have much time for this either, however I feel compelled to point out that Homeland (season1) was repetitive dirge and season 2 appears to be repetitive dirge in foreign cities. Why no Kelsey Grammer in Boss, or Sons of Anarchy. Makes no sense, but then it never did.

    Considering how heavily the free-to-air channels in Hong Kong are weighted towards American output (just about the only British content recently seems to be endless puff pieces for the Queen and Prince William), it’s surprising how few award-winning programmes get shown here. I suppose TVB and ATV just buy whatever they can get cheapest.

      I think you’re right and it’s probably a matter of their budget and likely getting outbid by the cable channels that can spread the cost of acquisition across multiple countries (and therefore charge more for ads).

      It’s the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, 90 members representing 55 countries, all entertainment reporters.
