The awards season has started, and the Golden Globes just kicked it off last Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. The event was graced by so many celebrities and performers. The femme fetales fired up the red carpet, despite the rainy weather, with glamorous designer gowns and dresses, while the men donned their tuxes and looked flawless.
But aside from the fashion and celebrities, the event was packed with strange moments and some embarrassing mishaps, according to Fox’s report. For one, the famous Julia Roberts was speculated to be drunk during the whole night, as she was seen doing some awkward poses and looking funny. When Chloe Sevigny was announced as winner, her escort accidentally stepped on her dress and ripped it. Also, to make matters worse, her name was misspelled on the screen. Mo’Nique and Drew Barrymore showed love as the former gave out a heart- warming speech, while the latter specially addressed her acceptance speech to the “Precious” actress.
But, of course, the focal point of the Golden Globes was the awarding proper. To say the least, the results showed a fair game among all the nominees. James Cameron’s “Avatar” won the “Best Feature: Drama” and “Director: Motion Picture.” “Crazy Heart” won the awards for “Best Actor: Drama” (Jeff Bridges) and “Best Original Song” (The Weary Kind). The “Best Animated Feature Film” and “Best Score” both went to “Up.” “The Hangover” won the “Best Feature: Comedy.” Sandra Bullock won “Best Actress: Drama” for her movie, “The Blind Side.” The “Best Actress: Comedy or Musical” award went to Meryl Streep for “Julie and Julia,” while “Sherlock Holmes”‘ Robert Downey Jr. won among the male nominees. The “Best Supporting Actor” and “Best Supporting Actress” went to Christopher Waltz for “Inglorious Basterds” and Mo’Nique for “Precious,” respectively. “Up In the Air” won as the “Best Screenplay: Motion Picture, ” while Germany’s “The White Ribbon” won as the “Best Foreign Language Film.”
