Golden Globe Winners

Golden Globe Winners, The cast of “The Artist”, winner of the best comedy or musical motion picture, appear with their award at the 69th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California Jan. 15, 2012.
George Clooney and Meryl Streep, as close to movie royalty as this post-star era can get, solidified their front-runner status in the Oscar race by taking the trophies for Best Actor and Actress in a Drama at Sunday evening’s 69th Golden Globes awards, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. On a night for old stars (Christopher Plummer) and new stars (Michelle Williams), the big winners were the who? stars: actor Jean Dujardin and auteur Michel Hazanavicius for the unclassifiable, incomparable-and, on Oscar Night, possibly unbeatable-silent comedy The Artist. (Here’s the full list of winners, including the prizes for TV shows and stars, which we’ll let James Poniewozik attend to.)
The Golden Globes are an award show with the emphasis on Show. Zillions of the glamourati clog the tables and listen to the host, Ricky Gervais, insult them; imagine dinner at Newt Gingrich’s house, but with a swankier guest list. Standing in front of a set dominated by purple curves, like amusement-park flume rides, Gervais played his naughty-boy card, He managed to libel Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster, the star of The Beaver, in one R-rated riff. (Foster courteously gave Gervais a thumbs-up instead of a finger.) He also jokingly maligned Ewan McGregor, Colin Firth and his own pns. Taking Gervais’s dick jokes as a challenge, the presenting and winning stars joined in the ribaldry. Walking onstage with pretty Kate Beckinsale, comic actor Seth Rogen, said, “Hello, I’m Seth Rogen, and I am currently trying to conceal a massive erection.” And Clooney thanked Michael Fassbender, who went impressively nkd in his film Shame, “for taking over the frontal-nudity responsibility that I had. Really, Michael, honestly, you can play golf like this, with your hands behind your back.”
