2008 Golden Globe Winners

Here's the complete list of 2008's Golden Globe recipients as voted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association:

Best Motion Picture - Drama: Slumdog Millionaire
Best Actor In a Drama: Mickey Rourke - The Wrestler
Best Actress In a Drama: Kate Winslet - Revolutionary Road
Best Motion Picture - Musical/Comedy: Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Best Actor In a Musical/Comedy: Colin Farrell - In Bruges
Best Actress In a Musical/Comedy: Sally Hawkins - Happy-Go-Lucky
Best Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger - The Dark Knight
Best Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet - The Reader
Best Director: Danny Boyle - Slumdog Millionaire
Best Screenplay: Simon Beaufoy - Slumdog Millionaire
Best Animated Feature Film: WALL-E
Best Foreign Language Film: Waltz With Bashir
Best Original Score: A.R. Rahman - Slumdog Millionaire
Best Original Song: 'The Wrestler' (Bruce Springsteen) - The Wrestler

Notes: Not surprinsingly, Slumdog Millionaire took home the most awards with 4 so it remains the clear favorite come Oscar time. The race is still on between Sean Penn and Mickey Rourke, the SAG might provide the deciding vote. Hats off to Kate Winslet winning both Best Actress AND Best Supporting Actress. Not one actor or actress has walked with both Lead and Supporting Acting Oscars in the same ceremony. It would be unlikely she'd win both but we can probably say with confidence Kate will finally win an Oscar this year. Bravo to Colin Farrell, simply great in In Bruges winning Best Musical/Comedy Actor. Well, will these GG influence much the Oscars this year? What do you think?

Actually Daniel, Kate Winslet is only the second actress who won Best Actress and Supporting Actress for Picture at Globes. The first one was Sigourney Weaver in 1987 for Apes in the Mist (LEad) and Working Girl (Supporting)

Thanks for the drop of knowledge, but it clearly states Lead and Supporting OSCARS in the article.
