Well, the Golden Globes were tonight.   That’s right, it was the night in which the Hollywood Foreign Press bestowed upon the stars of television and film a bunch of shiny awards that are a little more fun and less serious than the Academy Awards.  And it was actually quite a memorable ceremony for once—from Jodie Foster giving a bracingly candid and charming acceptance speech for Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement (she made jokes, she came out, she may have hinted at retiring as actor) to Bill Clinton showing up to introduce Lincoln to Ben Affleck continuing to rub critical wins in the face of the Academy.  Oh, and the Anne Hathaway “validate me, please please please validate me” train rolled ever onward.  Check out our list of the big winners below.
