Just like the NFL playoffs, fresh faces and perennial favorites in the movie industry each took home wins Sunday night with the Golden Globes.
Long-standing champs like Nicholson, Streep and Scorsese (plus, of course, the Oakland Raiders) scored big in their categories. Relative newcomers to the big game like Renee Zellweger, Richard Gere and writer/director Alexander Payne (and the Tampa Bay Bucs) each received well-deserved victories.
The Globes virtually serve as playoffs to the Super Bowl of them all, the Oscars. The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences announces their nominees on Feb. 11 with the Super Sunday 'championship' coming Mar. 23.
Here are all the winners from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (and the National Football League):
Drama - The Hours
Comedy Or Musical - Chicago
Foreign Language Film - Talk To Her/Hable Con Ella (Spain)
Score - Elliot Goldenthal, Frida
Original Song - U2, "The Hands That Built America" from Gangs Of New York
Tampa Bay 27, Philadelphia 10
Oakland 41, Tennessee 24
