The 66th Golden Globe Awards

In case you are interested in yesterday's 66th Golden Globe Awards, here are some highlights.

The big winners were “Slumdog Millionaire,” Kate Winslet, HBO and its “John Adams” mini-series and NBC’s comedy juggernaut, “30 Rock,”

Danny Boyle, third from right, won the award for best director for "Slumdog Millionaire," which also won best drama.

“Slumdog Millionaire” won best dramatic picture, best directing, best screenplay and score. Best comedy was Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”

Ms. Winslet won not only best actress in a drama for “Revolutionary Road,” a film directed by her husband, Sam Mendes, but also best supporting actress for “The Reader,” only the third time in Globes history that a person has won two acting awards in the same year.

Other winners include Mickey Rourke for best actor in a drama for “The Wrestler”, Bruce Springsteen won for best original song for his theme song to “The Wrestler.”

Heath Ledger, who died last January at 28, was named best supporting actor in a film for his role as the Joker in “The Dark Knight,” the year’s biggest success at the box office. The film’s director, Christopher Nolan, accepted the award on Ledger’s behalf as the audience rose in a standing ovation.

NBC’s “30 Rock” was named best comedy, and its star and creator, Tina Fey, was named best actress in a comedy, while her co-star, Alec Baldwin, won for best actor.
