It was great to have the full telecast of The Golden Globes tonight. A night of great speeches and honouring many celebrated films. The big sweeper was Slumdog Millionaire which took home all 4 awards it was nominated for: Picture - Drama, Director (Danny Boyle), Screenplay (Simon Beaufoy) and Original Score (A.R. Rahma). Next up with two wins is The Wrestler which took home Best Actor - Drama (Mickey Rourke) and Best Song (Bruce Springsteen). Also with two wins was not a film, but Kate Winslet who won Best Actress - Drama (Revolutionary Road) and Best Actress in a Supporting Role (The Reader); both of her speeches were lovely and I think everyone was moved by her second speech which pouring out the love for Leonardo DiCaprio and Sam Mendes. One surprize of the evening was the 3 films that had 5 nominations each (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon and Doubt) were all shut out winning no awards at all.
I think I'm still on overdrive from watching the awards, twittering through the awards and live chatting with Andrew (gmanReviews) & Ethan (Screen Geeks). Thanks to those who joined the chatroom and played along in twitter, it was one fantastic night!
