So it’s that time of year again, and the awards season is kicking off with the 2009 Golden Globes. Cue some interesting nominations which always seem to affect the subsequent award shows. And with the results already in and many of you will already know who’s scooped the big awards, with a couple of films claiming a lions share of awards this year.

The first one to mention is Danny Boyle’s latest movie Slumdog Millionaire, which amid a buzz of critic love and adoration, managed to take home a number of awards, including Best Motion Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Original Score and to top it off Danny Boyle also got recognized by grabbing the best director award which is great news for one of England’s most talented and seemingly versatile directors

Kate Winslet managed to grab two awards under Best Actress and Best supporting actress for different roles in two different movies, quite the year for her. Colin Farrell managed to snag the award for best actor in a comedy or musical for the excellent In Bruges one of my favorite films of the year. Heath Ledger won the award for best supporting actor for his final screen role as the Joker in The Dark Knight.

Also riding high is the Mickey Rourke fuelled, Darren Arfonsky directed The Wrestler which managed to win itself two awards. Rourke won the Best Actor award for his critically acclaimed and sure to be career reviving portrayal of an over the hill wrestler, in the aptly titled The Wrestler.

Steven Spielberg was recognized by the Globes for his considerable contribution to modern cinema, taking home the Cecil B. DeMille Award. And to round this off for another year, one of the most highly praised movies of last year, Wall-E, managed to walk away with the Best Animated feature of the night.

Well we have the momentum started now, the next big event coming up is the Oscars and it’s going to be interesting to see how the results here affect those. I was racking my brain trying to think of films or performances that should have been in here, if you can think of any that you expected here post them in the comments.
