'The Social Network' dominates Golden Globe Awards 2011

The biggest winner on the night of the much sought after Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles was no other than ‘The Social Network’.

The Social Network, David Fincher’s film about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, took home four awards including Best Film Drama.

Meanwhile, Colin Firth took home a Best Actor award in what appeared to be a great night for British Talent. Firth won for his performance as King George VI in ‘The King’s Speech’, although the seven-time nominated historical drama failed to win any other awards.

Firth’s victory has placed him in pole position for an Oscar, but he seemed more grateful the award would help stave off a mid-life crisis.

“Right now this is all that stands between me and a Harley Davidson,” Firth joked in his acceptance speech.

Other winners included Natalie Portman, who won Best Actress for performance in Black Swan; Toy Story 3 won Best Animated Feature and Glee won best comedy of musical TV series.
