News: Golden Globes (2006)

Mountain of awards for Brokeback

Ang Lee collects his Best Director award

Ang Lee's opus cleans up at the Globes

Brokeback Mountain took four awards at the 63rd Golden Globes ceremony held January 16, including the prize for the Best Film in the drama category and Best Director for Ang Lee. Lee’s Wyoming set tale of forbidden love was also awarded the Best Screenplay award for Larry McMurty and Diana Ossana’s adaptation of Annie Proulx’s short story and Best Original song for A Love That Will Never Grow Old.

Walk the Line, director James Mangold’s (Identity) Johnny Cash biopic, was a big winner as well, taking Best Picture in the Musical or Comedy category and netting its stars Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon Best Actor and Best Actress awards in the Musical or Comedy category.

Elsewhere, Phillip Seymour Hoffman took the Best Actor award in the drama category for his portrayal of crime author Truman Capote in Capote, with the Best Supporting Actor award in the same category going to George Clooney for his role as a CIA agent in Syriana. Felicity Huffman, probably best known previously for playing Lynette in Desperate Housewives, picked up the Best Actress award in the drama category for her portrayal of a man awaiting sex-change surgery in Transamerica.

British thesps didn’t do too badly at the awards either, with Rachel Weisz taking the Best Actress award in the drama category for her role in The Constant Gardener and national treasure Sir Anthony Hopkins picking up the coveted Cecil B Demille Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Golden Globe awards, held annually in Los Angeles, are voted for by around 85 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and are often considered to be a reliable indicator of the way Academy members will cast their votes for Oscar night. The results of the Golden Globe film awards are listed below.
