ABC strikes at Golden Globe; Lost, Desperate Housewives win

MUMBAI: Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced the winners of its 63rd annual Golden Globe awards. In the television category, it was definitely not a one-sided verdict. Taking a look at the final statistics, we have ten television programmes sharing among themselves a total of 11 awards and that says it all.



As expected, ABC shows Lost and Desperate Housewives pocketed the top honours for Best Series Drama and Best Series Musical or Comedy respectively. While, the award for the Best Actress, Drama, went to Geena Davis for her performance in the ABC show Commander in Chief, Hugh Laurie won the Best Actor title for the Fox drama House. 

Overall, ABC won four awards while, HBO took home three. NBC, CBS, Fox and Showtime won one award each. Veteran Anthony Hopkins was honoured with the lifetime achievement (Cecil B DeMille) award.



In the Musical/Comedy category, the best actor award went to Steve Carell for his performance in the NBC series The Office. Mary-Louise Parker's histrionics in the Showtime series Weeds won her the Best Actress award in the category.



In the motion picture category, gay cowboy romance Brokeback Mountain won the coveted Golden Globe award for best dramatic film. The film also netted three more awards including the best director title for Ang Lee. The film is the heart-wrenching story of two macho cowboys who fall in love and pursue their affair over the next two decades, despite marriage and children.
