Kate Winslet has a Golden Globe Awards evening unlike any other actress. Winslet wins both the Best Supporting Actress award as well as the Best Actress trophy for her reunion with Leonardo DiCaprio, Revolutionary Road.
The Golden Globe Awards unite Hollywood to celebrate the best visual entertainment of year 2008. Both film and television are represented.
Award highlights include Jennifer Lopez beginning the show with her missing wedding ring giving Kate Winslet her best supporting actress Golden Globe, Sting presenting best song to a crop of nominees that included Beyonce, Miley Cyrus and Bruce Springsteen. Who won? Read below!
Red carpetAs many celebrities were in attendance to mark nominations for work in 2008, dozens of huge stars who served as presenters walked the red carpet to mixed fashion results. With questionable use of makeup and hair, Drew Barrymore joined screen legend Jessica Lange.
But for the most part, the celebrities' stylists did their job. Sandra Bullock elegantly walked the carpet in support of two upcoming films. Musicians were in attendance, this wasn't a party for film and television only. Beyonce and Sting stood out in their presentation duties. Although she was incredibly glamorous, Beyonce's singing and songwriting efforts lost out in the Best Song category. The winners are listed below!
Penelope Cruz from Vicky Christina Barcelona looked radiant as Zach Efron and Vanessa Hudgens looked right at home amongst the Hollywood celebrity elite. The High School Musical couple were quickly drowned out by screams.
Why? Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had arrived and it became clear that these two were by far, the most powerful couple in entertainment.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet matched in black as their Revolutionary Road enjoyed some success with ….what?
