The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards have been awarded and it was James Cameron and Avatar pulling the big upset and taking home the trophies over the heavily favored The Hurt Locker and director Kathryn Bigelow. In our opinion, Ricky Gervais did a pretty good job as host this year (though we’d watch anything he was involved in, heck we even liked The Invention of Lying despite the lukewarm reviews it received).

Sandra Bullock won for The Blind Side

If you're looking to spice up the Globes, here's a few drinking cues:
-- Drink whenever someone takes a shot at NBC over the late-night mess. Two drinks if the mention of Jay Leno elicits boos.
-- Drink whenever there's a reaction shot of Angelina Jolie.
-- Drink whenever Ricky Gervais laughs maniacally.
-- Drink whenever there's a lame joke that makes reference to Avatar.
-- Drink whenever you see a commercial for "Chuck."
-- Self-immolate if Sandra Bullock wins out over Meryl Streep in any category.
-- Drink if anyone on stage is drunker than you are.
That should about take you to the first commercial break, before you completely pass out in a puddle of your own beer vomit.
