The Social Network and The Kids Are All Right Win Top Prizes at the Golden Globe Awards

With the exception of Ricky Gervais’s snarky jokes, which took aim at everyone and everything from Tom Cruise to The Tourist, the Golden Globes yielded few surprises tonight. David Fincher’s Social Network came out on top with four statues, including Best Drama and Best Director. “I’m personally loath to acknowledge the wonderful response this film has received for fear of becoming addicted to it,” Fincher said in his acceptance speech. The Kids Are All Right won two awards, including Best Comedy and Best Comedy Actress (Annette Bening); Colin Firth was named Best Drama Actor (The King’s Speech); and Natalie Portman picked up her second Globe, for Black Swan. (She’d previously won for 2004’s Closer.)

In the television categories, Glee and Boardwalk Empire were crowned Best Comedy and Drama Series, respectively.
