Winners at the Golden Globes

January 20th, 2003

In case you didn't see the 60th Annual Golden Globes last night, January 19, here's a quick recap of who took home the awards in film.

For best picture (drama), The Hours was honered, as was star Nicole Kidman for her performance as Virginia Woolf. Jack Nicholson deservingly won for best actor for About Schmidt, while director Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor took home best screenplay.

Chicago predictably won best picture for a musical or comedy, while Renee Zellweger surprised with a best actress win for her portrayal of Roxy Hart. Co-star Richard Gere won for best actor, and Meryl Streep, up for two Globes, beat out the competition for her supporting role in Adaptation.

Other winners included Martin Scorsese as best director for Gangs of New York, Chris Cooper as best supporting actor for Adaptation, and Pedro Almovodar's Talk to Her took home best Foreign Film. And last but not least, Gene Hackman was given the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Golden Globes are usually the stepping stones to the Oscars, some come that night in March, we could see the likes of...My Big Fat Greek Wedding? Oh, brother.
