The 2012 Golden Globe Awards took over Hollywood on Sunday evening (January 15) with Ricky Gervais once again at the helm and all of Tinseltown in his joke-slinging sights. A much more staid affair than last year’s show – save for some of the host’s zingers and Seth Rogen’s reference to his “male appendage” — the ceremony capped a long week of statuette-accepting and speech-giving ahead of next month’s Oscars.
“The Artist” further solidified its spot at the front of the awards-season pack with three wins (including Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical) and “The Descendants” (Best Motion Picture — Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama) showed that it could play the spoiler come Oscar night. The TV side was a more mixed affair, with no show dominating and high-profile wins going to newcomer “Homeland” (Best Television Series – Drama) and “Modern Family” (Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical).
