The close-run battle for the Best Picture Award at last night's Golden Globes was eventually won by The Descendants. The film, about a man trying to reconnect with his daughters after his wife has a boating accident, was also victorious in the 'Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama' category, when it's leading male, George Clooney picked up the award. Meryl Streep picked up the award for the leading actress in that category, for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.

The Artist found success in the Comedy / Musical section, winning Best Motion Picture and Best Performance by an Actor, for Jean Dujardin. Michelle Williams won Best Performance by an Actress in this category, for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn. In doing so, she spared the audience from one of Kate Winslet's notoriously emotional acceptance speeches. Winslet had also been nominated for her role in Carnage. The legendary Hollywood director Martin Scorsese won the Best Director award, for his work on Hugo, whilst another Hollywood stalwart, Woody Allen won 'Best Screenplay', for Midnight in Paris.

No doubt to the disapproval of Kim Novak, the Best Original Score award went to the Artist. Novak had recently taken out a full-page advert in Variety magazine accusing the makers of The Artist of plagiarising Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film Variety, for using a segment of the score from Vertigo in the original composition.
