The beginning of the over-climactic and yet also underwhelming end of awards season went down last night, with Babel taking the Golden Globe for best drama; Dreamgirls willing best musical or comedy, best supporting actress (Jennifer Hudson), and best supporting actor (Eddie Murphy); Martin Scorcese winning best director for The Departed; Grey's Anatomy winning best TV drama; and Ugly Betty winning best TV comedy. And Sacha Baron Cohen won best actor in a comedy for the Borat movie. The full rundown is here. The Associated Press described the evening as "fairly tedious" until Babel's Mexican director, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, told presenter Arnold Schwarzenegger, "I swear I have my papers in order, Governor." To relive the ceremony in excruciating detail, read Defamer's post on the evening.
