Kate Winslet wins two Golden Globe Awards
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?
Thoughts, seen and heard at the Golden Globes:
Fox Searchlight's Slumdog Millionaire won every category it was nominated. As for TV, 30 Rock and Tina Fey continued their untouchable year.
Colin Farrell reveled in his victory and Steven Spielberg received the Cecil B. DeMille award for a lifetime of work.
When Martin Scorcese presented his colleague with the award, the entire room launched into a several minute standing ovation that was as thunderous as it was the night's longest.
Tom Cruise was also a room favorite for his movie-stealing role in Tropic Thunder. Whether he won or not did not matter, in Hollywood, the parody of a Hollywood heavy earned Cruise the entertainment credibility he may have lost in recent years.
Jeremy Piven's mercury poisoning, although visible through his exhausted demeanor, was still a topic of conversation throughout the hall.
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher appeared especially proud for Rumer, who served as Miss Golden Globe. Especially adorable was Moore, ever the mother, telling her daughter to "stand up straight" while she presented an award.
Tina Fey looked completely comfortable in a plunging neckline gown.
Marissa Tomei looked truly disappointed in losing her Best Supporting Actress category.
Anne Hathaway in a glimmering blue, was riding a wave of awards and critical raves. Although she lost out to Kate Winslet, Hathaway was either a fantastic actress or genuinely pleased for Winslet.
Salma Hayek fell out of her gown as Megan Fox, presenter, seemed completely out of place and knew it.
Of Jennifer Lopez, hard to miss was Marc Anthony's iron grip over his wife, who did not mingle at all.
The most moving moment of the entire evening was when Christopher Nolan accepted the award for Heath Ledger who won for his Joker performance and paid tribute with incredible class. "He will be eternally missed but never forgotten."
Renee Zellweger came out and promoted her New in Town, emanating pure Hollywood glamour.
