Facebook creators’ biopic wins big at the Golden Globes

David Fincher’s “The Social Network”, about the creation of the Facebook, was named best film drama, winning additional prizes for its direction, screenplay and music, BBC informs. “Glee,” about a high school musical group, won best TV musical or comedy as well as two supporting actor prizes. As expected, Colin Firth was named best actor in a drama for his role in The King’s Speech. Yet while the British movie began the evening with seven nominations – more than any other film – this was to be its only award of the night. Few were surprised when Natalie Portman was named best dramatic actress for her role as a ballet dancer in “Black Swan.” “The Kids are All Right” – about a lesbian couple reunited with the biological father of their teenage children – was named best musical or comedy, winning an additional prize for star Annette Bening. Batman star Christian Bale (photo) picked up the first prize of the evening, winning best supporting actor for his role in “The Fighter.” Johnny Depp had begun the evening with two nominations in the best actor in a musical or comedy category. Yet he left empty-handed after Paul Giamatti was named the winner for his role as a boozy romantic in “Barney’s Version.”


HBO show Boardwalk Empire was named best drama series, winning an additional accolade for its lead actor Steve Buscemi. Toy Story 3 won the best animated film prize, while Al Pacino was recognised for playing right-to-die activist Jack Kervorkian in mini-series “You Don’t Know Jack.” Hollywood veteran Robert De Niro was warmly welcomed as he collected a lifetime achievement award from actor Matt Damon.
But it was Michael Douglas who got the most rousing reception of the evening as he came on stage to present the night’s final award.
