List of 2011 Golden Globe Winners

January 18, 2011 /  by  
 

The Golden Globes are arguably the second most popular film awards show (behind the Oscars), and second biggest TV awards show (behind the Emmy’s) and they usually are used as a barometer of determining if a film is ready for its shot at the big time. However, they are no stranger to controversy (as host Ricky Gervais hilariously pointed out).  Other than the hosting of the event itself, there weren’t many big surprises in the winners of the Hollywood Foreign Press’s choices.  The biggest upset was in the Best Foreign film category where Denmark’s In a Better World beat out favorites Biutiful and I Am Love.

What were your favorite moments of the night? Who do you think should have won, and didn’t? Let us know in the comments!
