2013 Golden Globes Winners

Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did a splendid job hosting, if you compare them to sort that have been hosting the Oscars lately. They did manage to stir the pot a little and offered the usual cute act they are known for. What they didn't have was Ricky Gervais all out guts in not to caring for a second for the egos of the stars, not playing to the crowds expectations and actually making the most controversial jokes ever made in Hollywood. Something the former "SNL" duo couldn't do.

The Globes biggest surprise came with Ben Affleck's Best Director win. A surprise now more than ever. As we all know he isn't nominated for the equivalent at the Oscars. Which still shows that the race for Best Picture and Director is wide open. Also Tarantino's grab in Screenplay for "Django" was also a surprise that stunned Quentin himself, as can be seen in his acceptance speech. He may have deserved it more with his work on "Inglourious Basterds", but we all love Quentin so nobody will mind.

Last but not least. I am still amazed how "Game of Thrones" wasn't even on the nomination list for TV. If one show made the jump of reaching movie quality in production and aesthetics  It would be "Game of Thrones". It all comes down to show, that we still have a way to go for genre shows and movies to get more recognition in this Hollywood and Drama dominated award shows.
