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.
