2011 Golden Globes: Did They Pick the Right Winners?

Director David Fincher

The year’s first really big awards show is now in the books, and what we’ve taken away from it is the fact that there really is nothing stopping The Social Network from simply plowing over all other films in its way. David Fincher’s film about the real story behind the creation of Facebook too home several awards, including Best Picture (Drama), Best Director (Fincher), Best Score (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross) and Best Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin). 

Other big winners included The Fighter (Best Supporting Actor for Christian Bale, and Best Supporting Actress for Melissa Leo), while The Kids Are All Right took home the award for Best Picture (Comedy/Musical). Natalie Portman (Best Actress, Drama, for Black Swan), Colin Firth (Best Actor, Drama, for The King’s Speech), Paul Giamatti (Best Actor, Comedy/Musical, for Barney’s Version) and Annette Bening (Best Actress, Comedy/Musical, for The Kids Are All Right) wrapped up the rest of the major awards.

As host, Ricky Gervais was on fire – roasting any and every celebrity, from Robert Downey Jr. to Charlie Sheen to more than few negative remarks about The Tourist and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association – helping the entire night feel a little more lively and fun as a whole.

But what about the winners?

Did Black Swan deserve more than just Best Actress (I personally thought it should’ve won Best Picture)? Or how about The King’s Speech? Johnny Depp was nominated twice for Best Actor and didn’t win, but did he deserve to? All in all, how would you rank the outcome of this year’s Golden Globe awards, and is there anything you’d maybe change for the future (like a host that’s a little nicer)?
