Golden Globes Thrill

Mark Barger wraps up the big moments at the Golden Globe Awards.

A film about Facebook's origins got more like votes than any other at last night's Golden Globes. The Social Network came away with
four awards including best drama.

Kevin Spacey, Execitive Producer of “The Social Network” said "I hope that the success of this film, the work of all of the producers who are here, Aaron's work, David's work, a remarkable support system in Sony, will encourage other studios that these films have value.

Colin Firth displayed a bit of mirth accepting best actor in a drama
for The Kings Speech.

Colin Firth said "oh, the Oscar question, oh thanks, 'm basically just about able to project myself to the end of this press conference, so I can't get any further than that in my mind."

Natalie Portman took best actress for Black Swan.

Natalie Portman said "I learned how much I could work, I think I learned the extent of my discipline which was put to the test every day by the rigors of the art form."

The Fighter meanwhile, scored a 1-2 punch, an exuberant Melissa
Leo winning best supporting actress. Co-star and fellow first time winner Christian Bale for best supporting actor.

Christian Bale said "I'm just not comfortable, I'm not good in a room full of people, and a lot of people don't get that. They can't understand that some actors are bloody shy, and they have these issues about 'oh I don't want to be in front of a lot of people,'and so sometimes that can come off as hostility."

But on this night, the Globes showed lots of love.

The Social Network's win doesn't ensure best picture Oscar success. Only once in the last 5 years have the two award shows concurred on best picture. That was with Slumdog Millionaire in 2008.
