Neil Patrick Harris – How I Met Your Mother

Denis Leary – Recount

Sally Field – Brothers & Sisters

Mariska Hargitay – Law & Order

January Jones – Mad Men

Kyra Sedgwick – The Closer

Paquin does a descent job in True Blood (people in the comments will probably disagree), but for some reason I was pulling for January Jones. Gervais was hilarious. I wonder if the Jonas Brothers get douche chills walking out with the announcer saying "stars of the Jonas Brothers 3D experience..."Best Animated Feature FilmWall-E


Kung Fu Panda

First time in a while that I wasn't 100% sure that Pixar had it in the bag, and WALL-E is such an incredible film, which just goes to show you the level of quality has been raised with this year's animated filmsBest Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or ComedySally Hawkins – Happy-Go-Lucky

Rebecca Hall – Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Frances McDormand – Burn After Reading

Meryl Streep – Mamma Mia!

A second win for John AdamsBest Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role in a Motion PictureHeath Ledger – The Dark Knight

Tom Cruise – Tropic Thunder

Robert Downey Jr. – Tropic Thunder

Ralph Fiennes – The Duchess

Philip Seymour Hoffman – Doubt

Not only does Ledger deserve it but the Globes would have lost all credibility if Tom Cruise won a globe for Less Grossman over Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight. Christopher Nolan's acceptance speech was as classy as it gets. You can watch the speech on YouTube.Best Foreign Language FilmWaltz With Bashir (Israel)

The Baader Meinhof Complex (Germany)

Everlasting Moments (Sweden, Denmark)

Gomorrah (Italy)

I've Loved You So Long (France)

America Ferrera – Ugly Betty

Debra Messing – The Starter Wife

Mary-Louise Parker – Weeds

Stephen Daldry – The Reader

David Fincher – The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

Ron Howard – Frost/Nixon

In Treatment

True Blood

Mad Men really upped their game with Season two. I hate when shows win years in a row, but when you're good, you're good.Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – DramaMickey Rourke – The Wrestler

Leonardo DiCaprio – Revolutionary Road

Frank Langella – Frost/Nixon

Sean Penn – Milk

Brad Pitt – The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button


The Reader

Revolutionary Road

Fourth award for Slumdog, and not a bad award to put on the shelf. Congratulations to Danny and crew, you guys deserve this one. I can't believe NBC actually tried to cut off the acceptance speach for Best Picture.
