Sunday, January 23rd is finally here! Welcome to our live coverage of the 57th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The awards have just ended on time at 11pm Eastern. The transcript of our coverage is below:
Well, it's raining in LA, but that didn't dampen the spirits of the nominees as they made their way along the red carpet.
The show's just started with the first presenters Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron. The first award of the night was for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture. 

The winner was the Golden Globe favorite Angelina Jolie She was very touched and made fun of the fact the she's won so many Globes saying "you must think I'm paying them."
That was quickly followed by the Supporting Actor which was won by Tom Cruise for Magnolia.

Vivica A. Fox and Martin Sheen introduced us to tonight's Miss Golden Globe, Liza Huber. They then presented the award for Best Actress in a TV Comedy/Musical to Sarah Jessica Parker for Sex and the City. She seemed a little stunned and it took her a second to leave her table. She was totally amazed saying she had never won anything in her life. Her speech was fantastically funny.

The cast of The Sopranos came out next to present the award for Best Actor in a TV Comedy/Musical. The winner was Michael J. Fox, who received the first standing ovation of the night. He made a touching speech and also mentioned his website where you can get info on the fight against Parkinson's.

Hugh Grant introduced the first clip of the Dramatic Movie nominees, American Beauty. He did make an interesting swipe against the fact that the Comedy nominees don't get the same treatment saying that "apparently any fool can make a comedy."

Diane Lane and Tobey Maguire then presented the award for Best TV Movie to RKO 281.

Diane and Tobey then presented the award for Best Actor in a TV Movie to Jack Lemmon for Inherit the Wind. He joked that in the spirit of Ving Rhames, he was going to give his award to himself.

Steven Spielberg presented the Best Director award next to Sam Mendes for American Beauty.

Keri Russell and Dylan McDermott presented the award for Best Supporting TV Actor to Peter Fonda for Passion of Ayn Rand. He had said earlier that he figured he had a snowball's chance in hell of winning it, so he was quite surprised.

They also presented the Best Supporting TV Actress. The winner was Nancy Marchand for The Sopranos. She was unable to attend.

Shirley MacLaine was up next to present the Cecil B. DeMille Award to Barbra Streisand. Poor Shirley's teleprompter wasn't working at the beginning. She joked that they better have it fixed by the time Babs hit the stage. Barbra seemed quite touched by her friend's tribute as she watched the videos and listened to Shirley's words.

Needless to say Babs received a standing ovation as she headed towards the stage. She said that someone asked her recently if they should be an actor. She said that if you have to ask, the answer is no. She said that acting has to be a passion and it's one she's had since she was a little girl. She also said that some of the best songs and films have never won awards. She said that you always remember the work and not the validation.

Lucy Liu and George Segal were up next to present the Best Dramatic Series Award to The Sopranos. Good night for the darling of HBO's schedule.

Michael Douglas was the presenter for the Best Actress in a Dramatic Motion Picture. The winner was Hilary Swank for Boys Don't Cry. She called fellow nominee Meryl Streep her acting god and dedicated the award to the person she portrayed Brandon Tina.

Renee Zellweger and Alec Baldwin presented the Best Foreign Language Film to Spain's All About My Mother. Director Pedro Almodóvar made a hilarious speech. He said he doesn't give actors freedom, he's a dictator.

Winona Ryder present the Best Motion Picture Comedy/Musical to Toy Story 2. The producers were almost cutoff in their speech by the music, but they just went on with their thank you's.
