The 65th Annual Golden Globes came and went Sunday night with little in the way of fanfare, with HFPA members and random L.A. television personalities announcing the winners at a brief press conference held at the Beverly Hilton. The traditional home of the Globes was silent – no red carpet, no A-List (or even Z-list) stars, and very little press.

True, the HFPA is a curious organization reviled by many in the entertainment community, but the loss of their annual dog-and-pony show is still disappointing. The WGA Strike is becoming the cold shower it was born to be.

The awards were spread out over a variety of films, with no film winning more than two awards. Atonement took home Best Picture – Drama. See below for selected winners, or click here for a full list at IMDB.
