The 2009 Golden Globes were held tonight at The Beverly Hilton with a live telecast airing on NBC at 8 PM (EST) and there were a few surprises to say the least.

Of course I would say the big winner was Kate Winslet who went home with two Golden Globe Awards, one for Best Supporting Actress in The Reader and another for Best Actress for her performance in Revolutionary Road. Slumdog Millionaire was the night’s other “big” winner as it won for Director (Danny Boyle), Screenplay (Simon Beaufoy), Score (A.R. Rahman) and Picture (Drama). Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona was the winner for Best Picture (Comedy/Musical) and Mickey Rourke edged out Sean Penn for Best Actor (Drama) giving Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler second place for the night winning two awards, the other for best Original Song for Bruce Springsteen’s “The Wrestler.”

Sally Hawkins almost broke down on stage after winning Best Actress (Musical/Comedy) for Happy-Go-Lucky and a welcome surprise came as Colin Farrell won for Best Actor (Musical/Comedy) for his role in In Bruges which he said on stage he would cut in half and five a hemisphere to co-star Brendan Gleeson.

The virtually locked awards didn’t change as WALL-E won for Best Animated and Heath Ledger was awarded Best Supporting Actor for his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

The complete list can be found below with the winners bolded and in red along with the Primetime Television award winners on the second page. You can also get tonight’s winners and the complete Golden Globe history right here. Basically, RopeofSilicon has you covered.
