And the Winners Are...

  • Best Supporting Actor, Motion Picture - Christian Bale. Yay! (Is he playing Jesus soon? Long hair, full beard and mustache. Just wondering.) Christian Bale yelled something out to Robert DeNiro as the music was playing him out, but it was all censored. Wonder what he said?!

  • Best Actress, TV Series - Drama - Katey Sagal - (Sons of Anarchy)

  • Best Mini Series or TV Movie - Carlos

  • Best Supporting Actor, TV series, Mini-Series, or TV Movie - Chris Colfer (Kurt on Glee). He seemed completely stunned. I'm so happy for him!! He dedicated the award to kids who are constantly told "no" or that they can't be who they are, or have what they want because of who they are. He told them, "Screw that, kids!"

  • Best Actor, TV Series - Drama - Steve Buscemi. Alright!

  • Best TV Series, Drama - Boardwalk Empire. Woo-hoo!!

  • Best Original Song, Motion Picture - Diane Warren - "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" from (Burlesque)

  • Best Original Score, Motion Picture - Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross (The Social Network)
  • Best Animated Feature Film - Toy Story 3

  • Best Actress, Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical - Annette Bening (The Kids Are Alright).

  • Best Actor, Mini-Series or TV Movie - Al Pacino (You Don't Know Jack)

  • Best Actress, Mini-Series or TV Movie - Claire Danes (Temple Grandin). Claire won the Emmy for this too. Temple's there in the audience--good to see her.

  • Best Screenplay, Motion Picture - Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network)

  • Best Supporting Actress, TV Series, Mini-Series, or TV Movie - Jane Lynch (Sue from Glee)

  • Best Foreign Language Film - In a Better World (Denmark) -

  • Best Actress, TV Series, Comedy or Musical - Laura Linney (The Big C). I'm really happy to see her win, but just like Nurse Jackie and The United States of Tara, also nominated in this category, I have a problem with the show being called a "comedy." I cried my eyes out during the season finale.

  • Best Actor, TV Series, Comedy or Musical - Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory)

  • Best Supporting Actress, Motion Picture - Melissa Leo (The Fighter). Very well deserved! Also, can I just say that I still love Jeremy Irons voice. (That wasn't a random thought...he presented the award.)

  • Cecil B. DeMille Award - Robert DeNiro

  • Best Director, Motion Picture - David Fincher (The Social Network)

  • Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical - Glee - OK, so Modern Family didn't win. I'm still happy for this win. I love Glee! And thank goodness it wasn't 30 Rock.

  • Best Actor, Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical - Paul Giamatti (Barney's Version)

  • Best Actress, Motion Picture, Drama - Natalie Portman

  • Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical - The Kids Are Alright. Yay!

  • Best Actor, Motion Picture, Drama - Colin Firth (The King's Speech) - another well-deserved win.

  • Best Motion Picture, Drama - The Social Network. This was presented by Michael Douglas, who recently announced his cancer is gone. He got a huge standing ovation, and said, "there's got to be an easier way to get a standing ovation."

Just a quick note about the show...I was a bit disappointed in Ricky Gervais. This best sums it up:

When he was introducing Robert Downey, Jr., he listed several of RDJ's movies, but said perhaps many in the room know RDJ best from The Betty Ford Clinic and the Los Angeles County jail. Ouch. RDJ came out and said, "Aside from the fact that it's been hugely mean-spirited with mildly sinister undertones, I'd say the vibe of the show is pretty good so far, wouldn't you?" Touché. It was just a bit uncomfortable throughout.

Beyond that, I'm happy with winners and look forward to the Oscars.

urgh! i thought i set my dvr, but i did not. :(
i thought "social network" shouldn't have won. it was good, but really? best movie of 2010???
and altho i didn't see it, i did see clips of ricky gervais, who i love, and thought it was funny. if they were going to get bent out of shape over that kind of humor they hired the wrong guy!!
i saw a pic of sandra bullock and thought her bangs covered up her pretty face way too much.
sad i missed it.
what you think of winners and those that were ignored? thoughts?

As far as the movies are concerned, I pretty much agreed with all the acting awards...can't really comment about Paul Giamatti's win for "Barney's Version" since I haven't seen it yet, but he's a great actor, so I'm sure it was deserved. I'm just glad Johnny Depp didn't win for that cateogry (Best Actor in Musical/Comedy) because that would've been a travesty.

As far as best movie, I can understand why Social Network won Best Movie--the screenplay is fantastic, the acting was great, even the special effects were good (did you know the twins were played by the same actor??? I didn't realize that until I saw him on Jay Leno the other night.) So, since it's so strong in so many categories, I can see how it won. Was it my favorite movie of the nominees? No--The Fighter was, but it's hard for me to argue that it was the "BEST" movie either. The acting is what makes that movie, but the direction is good too--I looked up the fights on YouTube and they got them down to a T. Whew. All that to say: it's a tough call. :o)
