Golden Globe winners and losers...

So at a rather rainy Golden Globes ceremony at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, the 67th Award-winners were announced and some of my Golden Globe predictions came true, but sadly there were some disappointed losers too.

Here are all the award-winners from the golden world of film and television...

BEST MOTION PICTURE: DRAMA
BEST DIRECTOR: MOTION PICTURE
Original Avatar film props
Scooping two of the top awards, James Cameron's Avatar adds some industry accolades to it's already mega-blockbuster box-office success.

BEST ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE: DRAMA
The Blind Side movie poster
Sandra Bullock deservedly took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama movie, for her role as Leigh Anne Touhy in The Blind Side.

Maybe the wonderful Carey Mulligan will have a chance at an Oscar for An Education.

BEST ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE: DRAMA
BEST ORIGINAL SONG: MOTION PICTURE
Jeff Bridges Crazy Heart film poster
Unfortunately George Clooney lost out on a Globe to Jeff Bridges, who I'm sure is deserving for his role in Crazy Heart, even though the trailer didn't seem that appealing to me.

Crazy Heart also nabbed the award for Best Original Song in a movie for 'Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart)' by Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett.

BEST MOTION PICTURE: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
The Hangover film poster
Sadly in my eyes, The Hangover won for best comedy film, over the likes of feel-good Julie & Julia and the original (500) Days of Summer.

BEST ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Julie & Julia movie billboard
Nominated twice in this category it would have been a travesty for Meryl Streep to have lost, so I'm especially pleased that she won for her effervescent portrayal of Julia Childs in Julie & Julia.

BEST ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock Holmes
Robert Downey Jr can seemingly do no wrong at the moment and took home the Golden Globe for his quirky portrayal of Sherlock Holmes.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE
Precious movie billboard
Mo'nique won the Supporting Actress award for her portrayal of the abusive mother of the titular Precious. She did deserve the award but I was still disappointed for the two ladies from Up in the Air, Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE
Inglourious Basterds movie poster
Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
BEST ORIGINAL SCORE: MOTION PICTURE
UP film promotional zeppelin balloon
As I predicted Up won the Best Animated Feature Film Golden Globe, along with a second award for Best Original Score.

BEST SCREENPLAY: MOTION PICTURE
Up in the Air movie billboard
Up in the Air beat off tough competition from The Hurt Locker and District 9 to win Best Screenplay for Jason Reitman and Sheldon Turner.

BEST TV SERIES: DRAMA
Mad Men Season 3 TV billboard
AMC's 1960's based American advertising agency TV series Mad Men won for the third consecutive year in a row for Best Drama.

BEST TV ACTRESS: DRAMA
Julianna Margulies The Good Wife poster
Julianna Margulies beat off tough competition from Damages Glenn Close, True Blood's Anna Paquin and Mad Men's January Jones to win Best Actress for her role in the acclaimed TV show The Good Wife.

BEST TV ACTOR: DRAMA
BEST SUPPORTING TV ACTOR
Dexter TV show billboard
Dexter himself, Michael C. Hall and the murderous 'Trinity Killer' in the fourth season of the show, John Lithgow, picked up Best TV Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively.

BEST TV SERIES: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Glee TV series billboard
There are not that many shows on television that qualify as both comedy and musical, but the fantastic Glee does both with ease and so I'm glad that they won this Golden Globe. It's just a shame that nominated Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison both missed out on their individual awards. Maybe next year.

BEST TV ACTRESS: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
United States of Tara poster
Toni Collette added a Golden Globe to the Emmy she won in 2009 for her multiple personality comedy The United States of Tara.

BEST TV ACTOR: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
30 Rock TV poster
I really don't get it as I find him a bit one-note, but Alec Balwin won in this category for the second year in a row.

BEST MINI-SERIES OR FILM FOR TV
BEST ACTRESS IN A MINI-SERIES OR FILM FOR TV
Grey Gardens TV poster
Grey Gardens picks up two awards this year, with Drew Barrymore collecting Best Actress.

BEST ACTOR IN A MINI-SERIES OR FILM FOR TV
Kevin Bacon Taking Chance poster
Kevin Bacon won Best Actor for his performance in Taking Chance.

BEST SUPPORTING TV ACTRESS
Big lOve season 4 TV billboard
Chloe Sevigny took home the Best Supporting Actress in a TV series, for her role as one of the wives in the polygamy drama, Big Love.

And finally, BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM was won by The White Ribbon from Germany.

Now that the Golden Globes are out of the way the big question is who will the Oscars go to. Nominations for the 82nd Academy Awards are released on the 2nd February 2010 and the Award Ceremony on Sunday 7th March.

Let's wait and see if the big Globe winners will also scoop some Oscars...
