The Golden Globes—the goofy little brother of the Academy Awards—were held Sunday night in Los Angeles, doling out awards to members of the film and TV community in a televised orgy of celebrity backslapping mixed with occasional hilarious criticism from host Ricky Gervais (“the Globes are just like the Oscars, but without all that esteem. The Globes are to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton. A bit louder, a bit trashier, a bit drunker and more easily bought. Allegedly. Nothing’s been proved”).

The Artist cleaned up nicely with the most prices (three); however, there were a few surprises (apparently, we live in a world in which Kelsey Grammer is a better actor than Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston—who knew?).
