And the Winner Is…

The Golden Globes Awards ceremony wasted no time getting started. Jennifer Lopez sauntered onto stage, her plunging neckline managing to stay put, and kicked off the festivities by getting irritated with her fellow celebs for not paying attention to her. Lopez then announced the winner for Best Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet, The Reader.

Sting, introduced as an activist and singer but looking more like a hobo, presented the award for Best Original Song to Bruce Springsteen for The Wrestler.

Simon Baker and Eva Longoria introduced Rumer Willis as Miss Golden Globe before announcing the winner for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television: Tom Wilkinson, John Adams. This was Wilkinson's first win after three nominations. The two then announced the winner for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, which went to Laura Dern for Recount. Dern was Miss Golden Globe in 1982.

Don Cheadle gave a shameless plea (but we don't blame you, Don) to Joel and Ethan Coen to hire him claiming he "would have crushed Fargo." Perhaps calling Brad Pitt "very dumb" might have hurt his chances?

Hayden Panettiere and Zach Efron presented the award for Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series - Drama, which went to Gabriel Byrne for In Treatment. Byrne was not on hand to receive the award.

Anna Paquin won her first Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series - Drama for True Blood. Her first words? "Oh my God!"

After shushing the crowd, Ricky Gervais took credit for Kate Winslet's win, claiming he gave her the insider advice to star in a Holocaust film. Really, it wasn't offensive. He's funny.

Brothers / teen heart-throbs / performers, The Jonas Brothers, announced the winner for Best Animated Feature, which went to Wall-E.

We had to ask: will Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lang be holding hands ALL FREAKING NIGHT? It started getting creepy. The two presented the award for Best Mini-Series or TV Movie, which went to John Adams.

A bittersweet turn came when Demi Moore announced Heath Ledger as the winner of the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama. Director Christopher Nolan accepted the posthumous award for Ledger.

Colin Farrell announced the winner for Best Foreign Language Film, which went to Waltz With Bashir from Israel. Dark Knight co-stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Aaron Eckhart presented the award for Best Actress in A Mini-series or TV Motion Picture, which went to Laura Linney for her performance in John Adams. Best Screenplay went to Simon Beaufoy for Slumdog Millionaire. Best Actor in a TV Comedy or Musical went to Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock. Baldwin got off to a rocky start after trying to make a joke about bringing Rumer Willis a JuiceBox on set when she was younger. The actor recovered and was effusive in his thanks to 30 Rock creator, writer and star Tina Fey. Paul Giamatti won his first Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for his role in John Adams.

In our countdown to the Golden Globes, we asked users to vote for their picks in a few key categories. Well, users, you chose right. (So did we, by the way.) The Golden Globe for Best TV Musical or Comedy went to 30 Rock. For Motion Picture Comedy, we both scored wrong. We said In Bruges; you said Mamma Mia!; and the Hollywood Foreign Press said Vicky Cristina Barcelona. For TV drama, we were spot on with Mad Men, while you missed the mark by guessing House. And we all missed the mark on Best Drama. We said Revolutionary Road and you said The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Slumdog Millionaire also took home the Golden Globes for Best Director and Best Original Score. Colin Farrell took home the award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his role in In Bruges. Jane Krakowski nearly burst when announcing her co-star Tina Fey as Best Actress in a TV Comedy.

One thing we love about the Golden Globes is their unpredictability. After all, the booze is flowing for the stars while we watch commercials and it's usually a recipe for fun. Our award for best presenter goes to Sacha Baron Cohen. Before presenting the award for Best Musical or Comedy, the performer gave a nod to what a tough year it's been economically, pointing out that even celebrities had to cut back on spending. the actor joked that "Charlie Sheen has been forced to have sex without paying for it," and that Madonna had to get rid of one of her personal assistants. "Our thoughts go out to you, Guy Ritchie," drew a groan from the crowd.

Cameron Diaz and Mark Wahlberg made a flat presenting duo as they announced the winner for Best Actress in a Drama. Winslet was overcome and, while trying to acknowledge the other nominees, faltered and said, "who's the other one?" Best TV Drama went to Mad Men. Mickey Rourke took home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama for The Wrestler. Tom Cruise announced the winner of Best Drama which went to Slumdog Millionaire.
