70th Annual Golden Globe Awards

So… The 70th Golden Globe Awards wait is over! The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the winners on January 13th, 2012.

Ben Affleck won the Best Director award for his political thriller ARGO which also won the Best Picture award. THIS IS SO AMAZING! More like a “IN YOUR FACE” moment for the Academy, they shouldn’t have snubbed Affleck out.

Acting wins were predictable, to some extent. I knew Daniel Day-Lewis would win – hey, everyone knew that he would win! I’m happy to see Christoph Waltz winning the Best Supporting Actor for Django Unchained, best wishes to him for repeating it in the Oscars as well. Hugh Jackman gets the Globe for his performance in Les Misérables, my first guess was Bradley Cooper for Silver Linings Playbook, followed by Jackman for the musical. Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence win it. Predictable, very predictable.

Quentin Tarantino won the Best Screenplay for DJANGO UNCHAINED, and I am thinking the same would happen in the Oscars, because he really deserves that. Django’s screenplay is excellent.

Some of the wins are surprising such as Best Animated Feature Film, BRAVE doesn’t always win an award but when it does, it makes sure that it wins big. Another surprise is Don Cheadle’s win in Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series – Comedy or Musical, I wasn’t expecting it at all.

Homeland and Girls win in their respective categories. Homeland’s cast Damian Lewis and Claire Danes gets the acting awards. I’m so glad to see Lena Dunham winning for the Best Actress in a TV series – Comedy or Musical.

Additionally, I knew that GAME CHANGE would win the Best Miniseries award, and the acting awards for its actors also.
