The Golden Globe awards ceremony once again paves the way for the upcoming Oscars by shedding some light on potential winning nominees and critics’ choice.  This year the Globes' audience enjoyed the hilarious observations of hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who really raised the comedic bar with quips like, “Only at the Golden Globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television.” Or on their infamous predecessor, “As Ricky Gervais found out the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times," deliverd in the duo's classic innocent cheery conviction.

"Les Miserables" led the pack at this year’s Golden Globes with three awards, including Best Comedy or Musical, Best Supporting Actress awarded to Anne Hathaway as Fantine, and Best Actor to Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean.  All these nominations indicate more treasure to come for the cast and crew of Tom Hooper’s rendition of the classic musical. 

Golden Globes winners are nominated and judged by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.  Surprises during this years Globes included a special introduction for the civil war biopic “Lincoln” by former President Bill Clinton, or as Fey and Poehler would have it “Special guest Hillary Clinton’s husband!”  Jodie Foster also touched hearts with an emotional and revealing acceptance speech upon receiving the Cecile B. DeMille Award for outstanding contribution to entertainment.
