The 69th annual Golden Globes wrapped up on Sunday without too many bleeped curse words, fumbled speeches - or surprise wins.
As predicted, George Clooney and Meryl Streep picked up a best actor and best actress in a dramatic motion picture Golden Globe, respectively, while "The Artist" nabbed three awards, including best comedic motion picture.
When it came time to hand out the best dramatic motion picture Golden Globe, that one went to Clooney's "The Descendants."
Here's the list of winners:
Thus far, with an hour still to go, the 69th annual Golden Globes has been relatively tame compared to last year's humorously uncomfortable show.
Aside from Seth Rogen's erection joke and Madonna's jab at Ricky Gervais - "If I’m still just like a virgin, Ricky, then why don’t you come over here and do something about it. I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years…on TV" - it's been business as usual.
And then we got to the nominees for best supporting actress in a motion picture. When Octavia Spencer was named as the winner, the hoots and hollers resounded through the until now pretty quiet audience. So many stood up to congratulate the actress that she could barely make it onto the stage.
Ricky Gervais, beer in hand, opened the 69th annual Golden Globe awards with his typical style of humor, but this time he fired at the more easy targets, like Kim Kardashian.
"So, where was I?" Gervais said as he took the stage, assuring the anxious-looking audience not to worry. "Nervous? Don’t be. This isn’t about you."
He continued, "The Golden Globes are just like the Oscars, but without all that esteem. The Golden 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."
It's a good thing "Modern Family's" Sarah Hyland has quick reflexes.
The 21-year-old actress almost faced a very revealing moment on the Golden Globes red carpet when the zipper on her vintage Dolce and Gabbana dress gave out.
"I was just standing there waiting to come up here," Hyland told E!'s Giuliana Rancic, "and I just felt an explosion in my back. And I felt my dress start to slip, and I grabbed it before it was too late. I’m now sewn in my dress."
Sofia Vergara is one of the stars who can have her cake and a Vera Wang gown, too.
The 39-year-old actress poured her curves into a blue strapless Vera Wang gown, and told E!'s Ryan Seacrest as she strolled the red carpet that she did a mix of hitting the gym twice a day...and making sure to get some confections in her diet.
"I can’t diet if I’m really working out seriously," Vergara laughed, showing off her hard-earned "guns."
As for how she chose her dress, she has a special place in her heart for Vera Wang, because the designer sends her gowns that "zip and close." Ha!
What do you think of Vergara's gown?
As the stars start to arrive on the red carpet for the 69th annual Golden Globes, all eyes are on George Clooney.
The actor has two movies up for the award in the best dramatic motion picture category, and he's been nominated for best actor in a motion picture drama for his work in "The Descendants."
Film critic Grae Drake is putting her money on Clooney's "Descendants" walking away with the win in the best dramatic motion picture category, but notes there's stiff competition in that one.
Gitesh Pandya of BoxOfficeGuru.com agrees, saying that Clooney is his choice for best dramatic actor, while he thinks Meryl Streep will nab the best actress in a dramatic motion picture honor.
