The science-fiction blockbuster "Avatar" has won best drama at the Golden Globes and picked up the directing honor for James Cameron, raising the "Titanic" filmmaker's prospects for another Academy Awards triumph.
Winning the dramatic-acting honors were Sandra Bullock for the football tale "The Blind Side" and Jeff Bridges for the country-music story "Crazy Heart."
The acting prizes for musical and comedy went to Meryl Streep for the Julia Child story "Julie & Julia" and Robert Downey Jr. for the crime romp "Sherlock Holmes." "The Hangover" scored a surprise, winning best musical or comedy.
The supporting-performance Globes were won by Mo'Nique as an abusive welfare mother in "Precious" and Christoph Waltz as a gleefully bloodthirsty Nazi in "Inglourious Basterds."
In drama, it was Juliana Marguiles of "The Good Wife" and Michael C.
Hall of "Dexter". "Mad Men" made it two years in a row as best TV drama.
"30 Rock"'s run as best TV comedy came to an end, the Fox freshman series "Glee" took the win.
"30 rock"'s Alec Baldwin did represent the show, taking acting honors in the TV comedy category, along with Toni Collette of "The United States of Tara".
