Here's an oddity this awards season: A top movie honor not going to "The Hurt Locker" or "Avatar."
This bit of news comes courtesy of the American Society of Cinematographers, which gave its feature film prize to "The White Ribbon" and cinematographer Christian Berger. The black-and-white German film, directed by Michael Haneke, is an Oscar nominee for cinematography and for best foreign-language film.
In the TV series category, Eagle Egilsson won for the "Venice Kings" episode of TNT's "Dark Blue." Other nominees were "FlashForward" ("The Gift"), "Ugly Betty" ("There's No Place Like Mode"), "CSI" ("Family Affair") and "Smallville" ("Savior").
"Avatar" was the big winner of the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards. The film was named Best Picture, Drama and Best Director went to James Cameron. Other winners of this year's awards include: Sandra Bullock, Best Actress Drama for "The Blind Side," Jeff Bridges, Best Actor Drama for "Crazy Heart," Kevin Bacon for Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for "Taking Chance" and Best Original Song went to 'The Weary Kind' from "Crazy Heart."
The full list of nominees is below and the winners are highlighted in bold.

Last night the 67th Annual Golden Globes were awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to just about everyone who didn’t deserve one. Shrug.
When you’re watching the Globes, it’s hard not to get swept up in the celebrities, the red carpet, and the Hollywood gushing as if any of this means anything. Then they hand a golden statue to a movie where a naked Asian man jumps out of a trunk with a crowbar (The Hangover), and you remember, “Ohhhh yeah, this award is completely meaningless in about seven weeks.”
Due to the endless array of Globes to distribute, Ricky Gervais was given a short monologue and a few mean-spirited laughs at the expense of the presenters. A Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler reunion (to promote their awful upcoming The Bounty Hunter) was overshadowed by the host calling them “Rachel from ‘Friends’ and that bloke from »

I’m sure if you’re at all interested in which movies win what at each of the big award ceremonies, you caught the 67 Annual Golden Globe Awards last night on NBC. It was a fun show (as the Globes usually are compared to the Oscars), with some predictable/expected winners and some pretty major shocks.
Rickey Gervais was an absolute hoot as the host, jabbing in and out with often controversial but almost always funny gags which ranged from a Mel Gibson drinking joke (“I like a drink as much as the next man. Unless the next man is Mel Gibson.”) to one about Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler (“It’s Rachel from Friends and that bloke out of 300.”). Great stuff from a great host choice.
I won’t waste any time just now giving my thoughts on who I think should have won and so forth, why don »

Photo: Hollywood Foreign Press Association The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards were held tonight and it's hard to say there were very many surprises as much as there were disappointments. Of course, I think the fact a film like Sherlock Holmes gets recognized for an award while The Hurt Locker goes home empty-handed is a complete sham. I believe Avatar is worthy of awards, but technical awards, which it will win at the Oscars, but since those aren't handed out at the Globes it means the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (Hfpa) feels the need to dote on it in categories where others are more deserving.
Avatar took home Best Picture (Drama) and director James Cameron won over the presumptive winner Kathryn Bigelow. This only causes agitation for me personally, because the whole show continued celebrity love while the smaller more deserving names were consistently overlooked.

Good to see Mo’Nique win though. That was the only win for Precious, as expected; I think the Oscar is hers to lose.
The Princess & The Frog walked away empty handed, losing to Up in the animation category;

Best Performance By An Actress In A Supporting Role In A Motion Picture
In case you missed the Golden Globes tonight, here is a quick recap of all the big winners at the event... and there were definitely a few surprises. James Cameron took home the award for Best Director and believe it or not, Avatar won for Best Motion Picture (Drama), lending more weight to the film's Oscar chances. Jeff Bridges won Best Actor (Drama) for Crazy Heart, while Sandra Bullock won Best Actress (Drama) for The Blind Side. It was no surprise to see Christoph Waltz win Best Supporting Actor for his turn in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, but I think more than a few eyebrows were raised when The Hangover scored the trophy for Best Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical)! Surprisingly, Cameron's ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow and her film The Hurt Locker came away empty handed. You can argue all you want over whether or not the Golden Globes mean anything, »

What the Golden Globe Awards lack in prestige they make up for in being damn entertaining. The Oscars are a serious affair and you can make all the jokes you want as long as they don’t mock the pomp and circumstance of the ceremony. The Golden Globes, on the other hand, are selected by the sycophantic Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and they need to keep a modicum of respectability while still netting all the big-name stars they can to come to their party. Since everyone knows the score, it’s a more relaxed affair with meals, jokes, and giving awards to non-traditional nominees that the Academy may not bother to nominate at all, (e.g. Sacha Baron Cohen for Best Actor in a Comedy for Borat).

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture

It may have been a dark and stormy night outside the Beverly Hilton, but inside the glittery 67th annual Golden Globes kicked off with a frothy start as the evening's host, Ricky Gervais, welcomed the assembled movie and TV stars."Let's get on with it before NBC replaces me with Jay Leno," Gervais cracked as he kicked off the proceedings.Nicole Kidman, the first presenter, pointed out that a lot of the attendees were wearing ribbons in support of Haiti and plugged the upcoming George Clooney-organized concert to benefit the stricken country.The most-nominated actor or actress in Globes history, Meryl Streep received her seventh Globe for "Julie & Julia," which Tom Hanks described as "the Meryl Streep movie where she doesn't end up in bed with Alec Baldwin, but does with Stanley Tucci -- by any measure a substantial move up." In fact, Streep's "Julie" win beat out her »
The results are in! The 67th annual Golden Globes, the first Hollywood award ceremony of the year, kicked off tonight at 8pm Est on NBC with several fashion hits and misses, teary acceptance speeches and some witty punch lines served by British comedian host Ricky Gervais.Though some winners were predictable, this year's Golden Globes event honored a lot of first timers unlike the previous ceremonies. Mo'Nique took home the first award of the evening as she was named Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Mary Lee Johnston in Precious, a film adaptation of the award-winning 1996 novel Push by Sapphire.Toni Collette, on the other hand, got the first TV award of the night as she earned her first Globe following three previous nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV series Comedy in The United States of Tara, where she plays a mother with multiple personalities. »
Could the reign of "30 Rock" at awards shows be at an end? If we're right about Sunday's Golden Globes, it might be.
The reigning Globe winner for best comedy series, actor (Alec Baldwin) and actress (Tina Fey) is no longer a clear-cut favorite to sweep the 67th annual awards Sunday (Jan. 17). A renaissance in TV comedy in the past year means a much more crowded field -- newcomers "Glee," "Modern Family," "Nurse Jackie" and "United States of Tara" are all nominated.
Taking into account the best of what TV had to offer in 2009 -- and the fact that Golden Globes voters tend to favor both big stars and new shows -- we offer our predictions for how the awards for TV comedy and TV movies and miniseries will (and should) go come Sunday.
Best comedy series
Will and should win: "Glee." Fox's »
The DGA, which unveiled the small-screen nominations in eight categories last Friday, will announce the winners Jan. 30 at its 62nd annual awards ceremonies at the Century Plaza Hotel. AMC’s Mad Men received three Directors Guild of America TV nominations for drama series and HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm and Fox’s Glee each got a pair for comedy. The nominations included a trio of season finales in Mad Men, Curb and ABC’s Lost. In the comedy category, two shows — the pilot for ABC’s Modern Family and Glee — also received nominations.
Thomas Carter scored a nomination in the TV movie-miniseries category for TNT’s Gifted Hands — The Ben Carson Story along with Bob Balaban for Liftetime’s George O’Keefe, John Kent Harrison for CBS’s The Courageous Heart of Irene Sandler, Ross Katz for HBO’s Taking Chance and Michael Sucsy for HBO’s Grey Gardens.

The Directors Guild of America has revealed its nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television, Drama Series, Comedy Series, Musical Variety, Reality Programs, Daytime Serials, Children’s Programs and Commercials. Despite the shit TV directors get, TV is progressing toward a greater cinematic atmosphere and TV directors are having greater relevance in the medium. DGA President, Taylor Hackford said, “television directors play a crucial role in eliciting performance, advancing the story and establishing the look and feel in all genres of television”. There’s no better example than Lost, which feels more like an hour-long, big-budget film than a TV show. The two-part season 5 finale received a nod, and Curb Your Enthusiasim director’s Jeff Schaffer and Larry Charles were nominated for their work on the last two episodes of the fictional Seinfeld-reunion that took place on the show. Mad Men picked up three nominations for Drama and Glee, »
