As is the case with many award shows, Las Vegas sports books were filled with gamblers on Sunday for the 2011 Golden Globes. The award show attracted bettors because of the unpredictability associated with who would win this year.
There were some shockers along the way, and there also were a fair share of expected winners. The big winners on the night included Glee and Boardwalk Empire. Robert De Niro was honored for his lieflong work, and Ricky Gervais started things off with a bang with his opening monologue.
Once the opener was out of the way, it was time to start handing out the awards. Paul Giamatti won the Golden Globe for lead actor in a movie comedy/musical for Barney’s Version. The female version of the award went to Annette Bening for The Kids Are All Right.
Jim Parsons, who finally started being recognized last year for his work on The Big Bang Theory, won the actor in a musical or comedy award. Parsons previously won an Emmy last year for his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper on the popular CBS show. Laura Linney won the award on the actress side.
Steve Buscemi won the best actor in a drama award for his starring role in Boardwalk Empire. The show has been one of the most popular on HBO in years, as it details life during the prohibition era. The first season is reported to have cost $60 million to produce.
Some of the easier picks for gamblers who bet on the Golden Globes were Jane Lynch from Glee for best supporting actress, and Al Pacino for actor in a miniseries or movie for You Don’t Know Jack. Boardwalk Empire won the award for drama series, and The Social Network won for motion picture drama.
