Glee and The Social Network dominate Golden Globes

LOS ANGELES. January 17. KAZINFORM The Social Network and Glee were the main winners at the Golden Globes, held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles; Kazinform refers to BBC News.

The former, about the creation of the Facebook website, was named best film drama, winning additional prizes for its direction, screenplay and music.

The latter, about a high school musical group, won best TV musical or comedy as well as two supporting actor prizes.

As expected, Colin Firth was named best actor in a drama for his role in The King's Speech.

Yet while the British movie began the evening with seven nominations - more than any other film - this was to be its only award of the night.

Its star, recognised for his role as stammering monarch King George VI, jokingly thanked the gala's organisers for helping him stave off a midlife crisis.

"Right now this is all that stands between me and a Harley Davidson," he said of his award, going on to thank his fellow actors in the royal period drama.

Few were surprised when Natalie Portman was named best dramatic actress for her role as a ballet dancer in Black Swan.

The actress, who is expecting a baby, used her acceptance speech to thank her parents for "bringing me into this world and giving me this beautiful life".

The Kids are All Right - about a lesbian couple reunited with the biological father of their teenage children - was named best musical or comedy, winning an additional prize for star Annette Bening.

Bening, who beat co-star Julianne Moore to the best actress in a comedy prize, called Moore "a class act" for her role in getting the film made.

Batman star Christian Bale picked up the first prize of the evening, winning best supporting actor for his role in The Fighter; Kazinform cites BBC News.
