'The Artist' and 'The Help'  Pick Up Momentum Going Into Golden Globes

'The Artist' and 'The Help' Pick Up Momentum Going Into Golden Globes

The Artist and The Help picked up some major momentum going into the Golden Globes this Sunday. Last night at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, The Artist was named best picture and also scored wins for best score, best costume design and a best director win for Michael Hazanavicius.

The Help dominated in the acting categories, scoring best ensemble as well as best actress for Viola Davis and best supporting actress for Octavia Spencer.
 
You can see the full list of winners at the end of this post.
 
So what does it all mean for the Golden Globes?
 
Best drama may come down to The Help and The Descendants, which won a best actor award for George Clooney last night. The comedy/musical category appears to be a two-horse race as well between The Artist and Bridesmaids, which won the best comedy award last night.
 
We'll have complete coverage of the Globes including red carpet pics, the fashion and of course, the winners in our Awards Watch section (plus live updates on our Fandango Twitter and Facebook accounts). The Golden Globes show begins at 5 p.m. PST on NBC.
