This past Sunday night’s 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards was a fantastic night for The Social Network, Glee, and The Kids are Alright, but aside from the notable win by Jim Parsons for Best Actor in a TV Series – Comedy or Musical, sci-fi / fantasy nominees went home empty-handed.
How could Christopher Nolan’s Inception, Red, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, and AMC’s The Walking Dead not have won anything? The Hollywood Foreign Press Association definitely had their eyes on more reality-based entertainment as exhibited by the number of The Social Network wins and Al Pacino and Claire Danes’ wins for their portrayals of suicide doctor Jack Kevorkian and autistic, livestock scientist Temple Grandin respectively.

Whatever you thought of Ricky Gervais' hosting duties at the Golden Globes on Sunday, that performance is one of the reasons viewership of the ceremony rose.
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards pulled in 16.99 million viewers and a 5.2 rating, giving the show a 5% increase in the key demo from last year for NBC.
Newspaper outlets and online social networks exploded with reaction which proved divided over the tone which some have labelled too acidic or "nasty", others however loved it and several online polls were overwhelmingly in favour of his performance.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association released a statement yesterday saying "We loved the show. It was a lot of fun and obviously has a lot of people talking.

The Golden Globes happened. People wrote about them. Here's how it went: Ricky Gervais was shocking and will definitely not be invited back, says Tara Ariano, who then details many of the ways in which Gervais mocked both the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the stars on the show, and assorted others. (But she's wrong when she says he "took aim" at Scientology; rather, he took aim at a couple of prominent Scientologists.) I think she misinterprets Robert Downey Jr.'s response to Gervais, but the biggest problem is the lack of context: »

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sandra Bullock - they're just a few of the heavy hitters who are expected to converge on this year's Golden Globes, upping the glamour factor to new heights. Hollywood's royal couple Jolie and Pitt are due to make an appearance in honor of her best actress nod for The Tourist, and Jolie can always be counted on to cut a stunning figure on the red carpet.

I love the Golden Globes. They efficiently toss out statuettes for film and TV in one snappy show, ply celebrities with enough champagne to say silly things on camera, and insist on bringing back Ricky Gervais to host, knowing he'll say something to tick off somebody important. So, in the awards-show spirit, let's get to who ought to win Sunday night. Best Motion Picture - Drama: The King's SpeechNo question, The Social Network is the movie of the moment. It's at the top of critics' lists, and with an amazing script from Aaron Sorkin, kinetic directing from David Fincher, and »
