Golden Globe Awards

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".

    you know you people watch tv and movies! though i agree that it is ridiculous that people worship these 'hollywood idols' and are fascinated with every silly thing they do, like breathe. i think they should give out the golden everyman awards (or golden everyperson awards, whatever) for the people who do their jobs the best in the country. it should be televised and then people would see that there are other things as important as entertainers!

    I guess Bullock's million dollar "donation" to Hatai paid off. You can buy worthless awards, as well.
