Oh, gotcha. I've never been a Colin Farrell fan because he always just looks so ... so ... grubby. But while I didn't love In Bruges like some people did, I thought he was quite good in it, and it made me like him better.

Plus, I've heard about some charitable things he does with kids (I think that's what it was), and that tipped the scales in his favor for me, too.

But he still looks grubby, hot accent or no.

I think his son has Angelman syndrome.

He does look kinda grubby, he did look like he bathed for the Golden Globes

As an ex-pat I'm with you on that. I think a lot of viewers were sitting at home watching her carry on with that look on their faces like they just sucked on a lemon. I had to change the channel the second time she went up. Now Mickey Rourke's acceptance speech was refreshing, he thanked the appropriate people - Axl Rose, Bruce, director, film company, his dogs...lol.

Farrell's win was probably my favorite of the whole awards. He's really growing into one of my favorite actors. The New World, Miami Vice, In Bruges, all triple-A stellar performances. Glad to see him get some acknowledgment for his work.

The New World was definitely the role where I first squinted at the screen and said "Huh. I guess Colin Farrell isn't so bad!"

God, I love that movie.

Colin Farrell is hot and talented. I was thrilled that he won even though I haven't seen In Bruges, yet. You really have to give the guy credit; he struggled with his alcohol and drug addiction for a long time, but he got help and has been nothing but honest about it. He does do a lot of charity work, especially for kids with special needs. His 5 year old son has something called Angelman's Syndrome which slows down normal growth and development, but he's so proud of him.

I'm British and have never met someone who doesn't like Kate Winslet!

It's only an acceptance speech and, to be fair, acceptance speeches are generally pretty cringeworthy Considering she's one of the best actresses we've got, give her some damn credit

I never knew Kate Winslet was so disliked until I opened this thread.

The reactions of the Brits in this thread caught me off guard, too. Then I saw a link elsewhere to a column in a British newspaper that's echoing their sentiments, so apparently it's not just the few posters here who had those same thoughts.

Heaven fucking forbid someone actually show some emotion while accepting an award and are a) excited; b) shocked; c) overwhelmed.

I loved both of Kate's acceptance speeches. I think she was truly and genuinely humbled and surprised. She's been nominated so many times and has never won. She's a brilliant actress, and she was amazing in Revolutionary Road.

I felt more cringe induced when Sally Hawkins received her award. She looked like a concentration camp victim. Her shoulders and elbows are sharp instruments of death.

Please somebody give her a plate of sausages and a protein powder shake!

This American was embarrassed for her. But I still love her. She deserved them and aside from over-the-top acceptance speeches, can do no wrong.

Kate was on Oprah Tuesday. Talked about The Reader, and then about Revolutionary Road, with Leo on remote/Skyped in from L.A. Showed the clip of her winning Best Actress.

That, and I also find him too, I don't know, puppyish. He still looks like an overgrown boy, and not in an endearing way either.

They didn't screen Golden Globes on free-to-air in Australia, It's a shame, I always find the show entertaining. Will be interesting to see how Slumdog fares at the Oscars.

I love Kate Winslet. So she had her Sally Field moment..She's not like that ordinarily, unless she is only in England or something
