Golden Globe Winners Announced
The Facebook tale "The Social Network" has won top honors at the Golden Globes with four prizes, including best drama and director, solidifying its prospects as an Academy Awards favorite. Colin Firth firmed up his standing as a front-runner at the Feb. 27 Oscars with his Globe win for best dramatic actor in "The King's Speech," in which he plays Queen Elizabeth II's dad, George VI, the monarch who came to the throne in the 1930s age of radio, when his stammer was a grave liability. Natalie Portman won best dramatic actress as a ballerina losing her grip on reality in the psychosexual thriller "Black Swan." Portman's win sets her up for a two-woman showdown for best actress at the Oscars with Annette Bening, who won the Globe for best actress in a musical or comedy for her role as a stern lesbian mom in "The Kids Are All Right," which also won for best musical or comedy film.
