      and Laura Linney, hope The Big C gets the comedy award.

      • globes suck

      • sugarlove

        so cool

    • stu

      jim carey should have been nominated for Phillip Morris.

  • Susan

    KATIE SAGAL!! I just watched her on Lost.

    • tracy bluth


    • Geek

      Lol. I love how every comment below is either about Glee or Katie Sagal. I, for one, am appalled to see Burlesque taking home best song over Tangled!

      • Kate

        Me too. Tangled was genius, as was the score for How To Train Your Dragon. Burlesque was a big steaming pile of dull.

  • Nelly

    Christan Bale finally gets the recognition he deserves.

    • ela r

      Yes! I totally agree that he deserves it. He got a bad wrap for yelling at a crew member, but only because he takes his parts so seriously.

      • Really?

        Imagine if your coworker talked to you that way? Would you get over it?

      • Really, Really?

        Well, I would, Really. I’d let him know how I felt about it, and then move on. The American workplace in general has become a kindergarten class full of crybabies.

      • Sandra

        You would have to get over it. What are you going to do, hide in a corner and cry ” he yelled at me boo hoo”. I’m not saying he was right to yell like that but it shouldn’t mean he can’t get rewarded for his work

    • Rashad

      Christian Bale was AMAZING in The Fighter. And I’m SO HAPPY The Social Network won Best Picture!! That’s one of my favorite movies of ALL TIME. And I’m pretty sure I’m love with Natalie Portman :)

      • April

        So you love an overrated movie The Social Network and a Natalie Portman, a real life homewrecker. Sigh.

      • James

        What a dumb comment. Like that marriage would have lasted if Natalie never came around.

      • A-K87

        Silly comments, April.

        Get a life. You don’t know any of these people

    • Cat


  • Leah

    Too bad Temple Grandin didn’t win Best Made for TV Movie. It was amazing.

    • Sara

      I totally agree!
      Was such a great movie!

    • Severine

      you obviously haven’t seen “Carlos” which is nothing short of breath-taking. It deserved the prize 100%

    • Kandi

      Didn’t it win some awards last year?

  • Anna

    Yeah Katey! Loved her in 8 Simple Rules and Lost! She deserves it!

  • Shea


  • Phe

    OH MY GOD Katey Segal and Chris Colfer wins!!!!! People are finally seeing true talent rise to the top.

    • Barry

      Chris Colfer has NO talent.



      • Shea


      • donna

        dont be hatin !!

      • Josie

        He’s right. Chris is just playing himself. No acting required.

      • Scotty

        We can all agree at least that the guy can sing.

    • ela r

      Go Chris! He makes it look easy, but delivering as an actor like that every time is a gift. Bravo, kid!

    • Josh

      Nope, true talent=versatility. Katey? Has it in spades. Colfer? Not even close.

      • Kris

        Thats true. They had to write Kurt for him because he couldn’t play any of the pre-written parts. Kurt is Chris that’s why he plays him well.

  • dirk

    Chris Cofer? You have to be kidding? How can you take any awards show seriously when Glee wins?

    • icarus


    • pV

      Chris Colfer is one of the few people on Glee who can actually act his pants off.

      He’s done an amazing job these past 2 seasons. And add on to that the crisis of gay teens killing themselves this year and the award was poignantly appropriate.

      • Ellen

        Ay caramba. He’s the best of a bad bunch, I guess, but he really lays it on thick. Glee is so awful.

      • Barry

        He’s just being himself in the show. That’s NOT acting.

      • Jake

        LOL, obviously we’re watching a different show because all he does is cry. Crying is not acting talent.

      • chris

        Gay Gay GAY. Enough already with gay. Glee is geared toward that audience and so be it but when people start referencing gay teen suicide then vomit. Soldiers die each day protecting this country and the suicide rate is sky rocketing and all people can talk about is how appropriate an award was for someone who gets paid to read what others wrote for him? Enough of your sexual preference being a reason to win anything

      • James

        Either people spend a lot of time watching a show they don’t like (Glee), or they’re talking out of their arse.

      • forrest

        I guess that’s the current trend in political correctness, but that’s the primary reason I can’t watch Glee. Modern Family is another high praise show that’s off my viewing list.

    • stella

      Obviously, you have never seen Chris Colfer’s work.

      • Jake

        Obviously neither have you.

      • Karl

        He doesn’t HAVE work. Look at the difference between actual actors and a one-noter who plays, basically, his real life self. He’s exactly like Kurt, even he admits it.

      • Samantha

        I love how everyone keeps assuming that Chris is just playing himself as Kurt-yah, cause you really know the kid. How are they alike? Both have high voices and were picked on in high school-there! Really, I understand the Glee hate but that boy is talented and humble. End the hate!

    • Rob K

      I agree whole hearted, how in the world can shows like that win awards.

      • NaK

        Agreed. Glee is really bad.

      • Jake

        Because they’re popular with a big crowd, so awarding them means more viewers and right now they’re doing a storyline that gets them media attention (though it’s a storyline that’s very poorly handled). It’s all politics. Awards are never about talent.

      • Kirsten

        Jake, going by your logic of “Glee being popular with a big crowd”, NCIS should be nominated in every category possible. How is it that a show that gets 5-7 million views is rewarded when a show that regularily has double to triple the size of viewers than Glee (NCIS has 14-22 million on any given night) is left constantly in the dark. There’s a reason why viewership is down. It’s because most people don’t watch shows like Boardwalk Empire etc. If the awards were done by viewers, than the Globes would be a very different scene right now.

      • @Kirsten

        NCIS is so bad that no one could award it anything and still be taken somewhat seriously. As much as I hate to say it, Glee is (if only marginally) more award-worthy than that terrible show.

    • TomK

      I like Glee in small doses–mainly when Jane Lynch is onscreen, or that cute prep school boy. Otherwise, it’s an endless ABC afternoon special–i.e., Strangers With Candy without the glorious irony. The story lines are all heavy handed and groan inducing, and most of the characters are ridiculous stereotypes, Kurt chief among them. The hysterical anti-anti-gay monologues the character spouts are silly at best. He is most definitely a talented singer, but most of the work he does in Glee is not acting.

  • Amanda

    The Pacific got snubbed! But happy for Christian Bale! Finally!

    • Artrell

      Clear, inrofmaitve, simple. Could I send you some e-hugs?

  • Lloyd

    OMG Im so happy for all the winners so far: Christian is so hot with the long locks and beard,so so happy for Katey, and Chris gave the best speech of the night so far.. SCREW YOU KIDS!!!!

  • Suzanna

    Finally!!! Christian Bale won an award for his work. He is a great actor who is super committed to his work.

    • What the What What!

      Bale’s never won an acting award before? …That’s nuts.

      • Severine

        it’s true. he usually has cult hero status, not awards darling.

  • Tee

    SO HAPPY for Katey Sagal, well-deserved.

  • ollie

    How could that kid win over stonestreet i mean come on now . I agree with other people they need to add a dramdy award. Glad katie segall one.

  • Andrew

    Eric Stonestreet was robbed! Chris is a great actor, but Eric is brilliant on “Modern Family.”

    • Josh

      Agreed. Plus, there is a bit more acting involved with Eric. No one can tell me Chris is playing anyone other than himself. Of course it works for the show, but it couldn’t be less award worthy.

    • Sash

      Agreed. Eric is great and we’re really seen a range of emotions and strengths! Kurt is such a one dimensional character.

    • Betty

      I agree. I like Chris, but Eric is a much better actor.

  • Dorchester

    Yes for Katey Sagal.
