My Picks: 2011 Golden Globe Winners

Glee's Dianna Agron and Naya Rivera
Okay, now this is more like it! At least award-wise. It’s nice to see some amazing movies get the awards they deserve. None of this Twilight ridiculousness. I was so happy to see The Social Network dominating in nearly every movie category because it really was a fantastic film. However, I wouldn’t have minded seeing it share some of its awards with Inception or Black Swan, also two very well done films.

Best Motion Picture, Drama
Winner: The Social Network
My Pick: Quite a competitive category, but it’s a tie between The Social Network and Inception for me, but TSN does have Andrew Garfield…

I though the Best Musical or Comedy category was a joke. Most of the films were pretty 'eh' to me. Alice in Wonderland was very disappointing, and The Kids Are All Right was just…all right. Congrats to Red for being the first comic book movie to be nominated in the category though.

Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Winner: The Kids Are All Right
My Pick: None of the nominees. I would choose Easy A for being a genuinely funny, smart film.

I pretty much would’ve been happy for whoever won Best Director, all were worthy nominees, although I do feel like Danny Boyle was snubbed for 127 Hours.

Best Dramatic Actor
Winner: Colin Firth, The King’s Speech
My Pick: James Franco, 127 Hours. I can't wait to see this riveting performance myself.

Best Dramatic Actress
Winner: Natalie Portman, Black Swan
My Pick: Natalie Portman, for sure!! I am so happy she won! Natalie's been a long-time favorite actress of mine, and I’m so happy her talent is finally being recognized! Congrats, girl!

Best Comedic Actress
Winner: Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
My Pick: Emma Stone, Easy A. Her performance was genius. She has a bright career ahead of her, and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing her in the new Spiderman films!

Best Supporting Dramatic Actor
Winner: Christian Bale, The Fighter
My Pick: I agree with Christian Bale, but once again there’s my love/obsession for Andrew Garfield…

Best Drama TV Series
Winner: Boardwalk Empire
My Pick: Haven’t actually seen Boardwalk Empire, but The Walking Dead was pretty awesome.

Best TV Drama Actor
Winner: Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
My Pick: Hugh Laurie, House. The show has let me down over the years, but Hugh never has.

Best Comedic TV Series
Winner: Glee
My Pick: 30 Rock or The Big Bang Theory. I do enjoy myself some Glee, but 30 Rock is sheer brilliance, and The Big Bang Theory was made for super nerds like me.

The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons
Best Comedic TV Actor
Winner: Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory
My Pick: Competitive category filled with great performances, but I gotta agree here. Jim Parson’s Sheldon is absolute perfection!

Best Comedic TV Actress
Winner: Laura Linney, The Big C
My Pick: Tina Fey, 30 Rock. Because she's the most brilliant and funniest woman on TV. The end.

Best Supporting TV Actress
Winner: Jane Lynch, Glee
My Pick: Agreed, she’s hilarious!

Best Supporting TV Actor
Winner: Chris Colfer, Glee
My Pick: I agree. Chris Colfer has delivered some pretty powerful scenes this season on Glee, so I wasn't surprised when he took home the award. Congrats to him!
