Early Wins

Christopher Plummer Takes First Trophy

And the Golden Globes are off! Christopher Plummer won the first trophy, for Best Supporting Actor in a movie, for his role in Beginners. His victory was followed by a victory for Laura Dern, who won for Best Supporting Actress in a television series for her role in Enlightened. While Kate Winslet won for lead actress in a miniseries for her performance in Mildred Pierce. Before their win, host Ricky Gervais did not disappoint in his official capacity to insult Hollywood. He read off a series of rules that the Hollywood Foreign Press had given him, and vowed to “break them all.” He also threw in jabs to Justin Bieber’s paternity suit and got Johnny Depp to admit he had not see The Tourist.
