The Social Network wins 4 Globes

Last night’s Golden Globe awards were surprisingly decent, not only concerning the winners, but also the gala – Ricky Gervais is one funny dude.

As expected, The Social Network nabbed the most important awards, for Best Film – drama, best director, screenplay and soundtrack (how about that Trent Reznor? Dude makes his first soundtrack and is already winning awards).  Also – as expected, Colin Firth won Best Actor, for The King’s Speech, and, to my delight, Natalie Portman won Best Actress, for a movie I have yet to see, Black Swan.

Good results also in the comedy department. Only one of the 5 nominated films was any good, The Kids Are All Right – and that was the winner. Paul Giamatti and Annette Benning are also worthy winners for Best Actor / Actress. Thank God the other 4 crappy nominated films got nothing. Even Gervais was spot on with some hilarious comments regarding this category (“Everything this year was three-dimensional, except the characters in The Tourist“).
