Press read more for a full list of winners and highlights of last night’s 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards brought to you by Cinema Sharks movie blog >>

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards premiered live Sunday (yesterday), January 16, 2011 from 8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel hosted again by Ricky Gervais who was most certainly drunk last year.  You can catch the nominees and subsequent winners after the break.

BEST PICTURE: DRAMA
Black Swan
The Fighter
Inception
The King’s Speech
The Social Network – WINNER!

Well its entirely expected, not my pick — and certainly a very hard bunch to chose from. but really Inception is the deserving winner, but hey you don’t always get what you want!
BEST PICTURE: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Alice in Wonderland
Burlesque
The Kids Are All Right – WINNER!
RED
The Tourist
Not much to say, probably the best out of the bunch. I’m just glad to see Burlesque tumble and fall really — lets hope their winning streak starts at the Razzies!
BEST DIRECTOR
Darren Aronosfsky, Black Swan
David Fincher, The Social Network – WINNER!
Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech
Christopher Nolan, Inception
David O. Russell, The Fighter
Once again I think Inception was sold short, and it seems the academy are favoring Fincher’s Social Network — but as we all predicted/expected, The Social Network is just starting with its Awards clean up.
BEST ACTOR: DRAMA
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Colin Firth, The King’s Speech – WINNER!
James Franco, 127 Hours
Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine
Mark Wahlberg, The Fighter
Colin Firth is reaching a point where the string of excellent roles he choses are being recognized, not just by fans but by members of the academy. A very deserving win, Firth was masterful in King’s Speech.
BEST ACTRESS: DRAMA
Halle Berry, Frankie and Alice
Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone
Natalie Portman, Black Swan – WINNER!
Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine
I was vouching for Portman the moment she appeared on screen in Black Swan, she put her all in this role. The emotion is intense, and she’s at a point in her career where everything she does she gets recognized for when awards season comes around. I look forward to seeing her win big at the Oscars!
BEST ACTRESS: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Anette Bening, The Kids Are All Right – WINNER!
Anne Hathaway, Love and Other Drugs
Angelina Jolie, The Tourist
Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right
Emma Stone, Easy A
Loved Annette Benning. She deserves a lot of credit for this movie and I’m glad she got recognized for her role in this fantastic film.
BEST ACTOR: COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland
Johnny Depp, The Tourist
Paul Giamatti, Barney’s Version – WINNER!
Jake Gyllenhaal, Love and Other Drugs
Kevin Spacey, Casino Jack
To be honest I haven’t heard of or seen this film, but Giamatti is a good choice no matter.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Amy Adams, The Fighter
Helena Bonham Carter, The King’s Speech
Mila Kunis, Black Swan
Melissa Leo, The Fighter – WINNER!
Jackie Weaver, Animal Kingdom
The rightful winner, as the group are fairly rich in terms of winning potential. I would say that it was a close call, but Leo won in the end because of her ability to tie in with the audience.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Christian Bale, The Fighter – WINNER!
Michael Douglas, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps
Andrew Garfield, The Social Network
Jeremy Renner, The Town
Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech
A great guy, and a deserving win. Great film, emotion and intensity course through his veins in The Fighter — I’m not at all surprised.
BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Biutiful
The Concert
The Edge
I Am Love
In a Better World – WINNER!
BEST SCREENPLAY
Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy, 127 Hours
Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg, The Kids Are All Right
Christopher Nolan, Inception
David Seidler, The King’s Speech
Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network – WINNER!

By now you know my view on The Social Network, and once again Inception gets over stepped this time…AGAIN. Utter bullshit.
BEST ORIGINAL SCORE
Alexandre Desplat, The King’s Speech
Danny Elfman, Alice in Wonderland
A.R. Rahman, 127 Hours
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, The Social Network – WINNER!
Hans Zimmer, Inception
I’m still a little baffled over how The Social Network seems to be dominating in every section, because frankly I’m going to be bias and say Hans Zimmer deserved the win. I found nothing of Social Network memorable, certainly not the score — and so the insanity of awards season starts.
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
Despicable Me
How to Train Your Dragon
The Illusionist
Tangled
Toy Story 3 – WINNER!

Once again fan favorite Pixar win! It was clearly the winner from the moment we saw it on the ballet form, being the highest grossing Animated film of all time — it was half expected! My favorite film of last year, and a general superstar! 
BEST ORIGINAL SONG
“Bound To You” (Burlesque)
“Coming Home” (Country Strong)
“I See The Light” (Tangled)
“There’s a Place For Us” (The Chronicles of Narnia)
“You Haven’t Seen The Last of Me”  (Burlesque) – WINNER!

An odd choice as Burlesque seems to be lacking in every other column of the Awards show, but still I think the Razzies hold some faith in the film 😉

Seriously!? No One Told Batman Star Christian Bale That Another Batman Wasn’t Happening Anyway. Batty Star Bale Says No More Batman After The Dark Knight Rises

It seems that the next few months will be The Fighter star, Christian Bale‘s month to shine as he heads into promotion for his newest release this month. Already having been grilled by E! online and MTV on the role of ex-druggie has-been boxer Dickie Eklund in The Fighter, it looks like other films will dominate the questions half — as production for his next, and more exciting film heads into action.

The Dark Knight Rises, which will the third and final Christopher Nolan directed Batman film has been on the hot-list for questionnaires, Bale however was intent on making it clear and announced that he would not be doing another Batman movie after this latest one. Saying “I believe, unless Chris [Nolan] says different, this will be the last time I’m playing Batman.” Not that a fourth was actually in the cards.

As everyone already knew, the plan for a fourth Batman – from director Chris Nolan anyway – has already been put to rest a long time as Nolan harshly put across his wishes for this to be the last and final film in the franchise. Tying off the critically acclaimed Batman lore created by Nolan that has been so long in the making — peronsally the idea of a fourth feels a little unnecessary as Dark Knight Rises seems like the logical ending point. Anything after that, would be overstaying its welcome.

Aside from that little more info has actually been reveled story wise so far, apart from the casting of Inception and Nolan favorite Tom Hardy opposite Bales character — as for plot, I’m sure as the interviews go on so will the rumors and info that spew through the movie news network. Although Bale admits that Bruce Wayne himself is yet to get a glimpse at a script as far…elaborating “Chris [Nolan] will let me know what I need to know when I need to know it. I probably know a little bit more than some other people out there, but I think most people would be surprised at how little I do know.”

Batman 3 Is Now The Dark Night Rises…Wtf!? Christopher Nolan Fills In Some Details, Obviously Inspired By Bay’s Dark Of The Moon

It seems that this month is the month of terrible title-changes, the first being the Michael Bay conjured ear-rapingly terrible title Transformers: The Dark Of The Moon, and now its Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman’s turn to follow the mantle of badly titled sequels.

According to an exclusive interview held by the guys over at Hero Complex Blog, Nolan, who sat down with Geoff Boucher, divulged some set secrets and took the time to blab the new title for the now titled The Dark Knight Rises. What the hell!?

What is so desirable about crappy sequel titles?? The last two have done well in the ways of titles, The Dark Knight Rises? I mean seriously, what is there to distinguish the last almost identical titled film from between each other, its almost as bad as the earlier caped-crusader films of the 80’s — its seems its adopted the one worded approach.

I’m not such a fan of the new title, obviously, but as for everyone else a mixed review is taking place — with fans and foes divided between hell no and hell yeah. Its hard to tell what to think when no one seems to be making sense. But aside from the tragic titling, Nolan also ad-libbed that the Riddler would not be the villian this time round. Sadly.

We also hear that a bat-signal (casting call) has been sent out for a female lead — meaning early rumors of a Catwoman styled character could jump into take the place of recently-deceased love-interest Rachel Dawse, who most likely wont’ be featuring this time round, being dead and all. But hey, its Nolan were talking about — and anythings possible.

Also, Nolan was only to happy to discuss the involvement of digital 3D in the film — remembering that Warner Bros. only announced early this year that they would be opting for 3Dification as well as the usual Imax treatment Nolan enjoys so much.

The rest of the interview is a bit of a blur, but can be read here. So thats it from me and intensely aggravating title changes, stay tune for more info as it comes(:
