Golden Globes 2011: Boardwalk Empire And Glee Really The Major Winners For TV

The Golden Globe results for the TV categories had a few surprises last night, yet all was fairly predicted. Boardwalk Empire and Glee with the big winners of the night. Boardwalk Empire took home two Golden Globes Best TV series Drama and Best Actor In A TV Series Drama for Steve Buscemi. Glee beat Modern Family to Best TV series Musical or Comedy and here’s the shock – but a damn good shock: Chris Colfer won Best Supporting Actor In A Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made For TV. Most had predicted Eric Stonestreet would win for Modern Family. During the announcement co-star Lea Michele was in a flood of tears and his speech was emotional too. He took the opportunity to thank all the fans and said to all those kids who felt like outcasts be yourself and screw all those bullies. Well said! It was a touching moment and good on Chris for picking up Best Supporting Actor. Glee also picked up Best Supporting Actress for Jane Lynch, although we already knew she’d run riot.

Other wins of the night included Best Actor In A TV Series – Comedy or Musical for Jim Parsons and Laura Linney for The Big C, in the respective female category. Also in the tough category of Best Actor In A Mini-Series Or Motion Picture Made For TV, Al Pacino did just about enough to beat Edgar Ramirez and Dennis Quaid to the award.

As I said before there were a few shocks of the night – clearly we got it wrong. Carlos beat The Pacific to Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture for TV and Katey Sagal won Best Actress In A TV Drama, outwitting Kyra Sedgwick who was firm favourite.
