Michelle Williams is the Golden Globes' Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy

By January 15, 2012

Follow me on:

Michelle WilliamsThe Golden Globes have only been on for an hour and it already feels like an eternity. After Madonna's not-so-interesting acceptance speech for Best Original Song (seriously, over Elton John, Mary J Blige, and Chris Cornell's "The Keeper" from Machine Gun Preacher???) which had the camera people trying to find anyone in the audience who was happy about her win, we return to the movie portion of the Globes with Seth Rogen talking about trying to conceal a massive erection as he stands next to Kate Beckinsale.

And the winner in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical category is Michelle Williams for her performance in a film that's neither a musical nor a comedy - although she does deserve to win (but in a different category). "I consider myself a mother first, and an actress second. The person I most want to thank is my daughter, my little girl whose bravery and exuberance is the example that I take with me in my work and in my life," said Williams, clutching her Globe. "Thank you for sending me off to this job every day with a hug and a kiss."

Williams looked gorgeous, and her thank you speech was sincere and moving. "Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for putting in my hands the same award that Marilyn Monroe herself won over 50 years ago. I'm honored," said Williams.

I hope the Oscar voters have the sense to not nominate Madonna’s song.

Glad to hear I’m not alone in my horror over the Madonna win for Best Original Song. I’ll admit to being biased, but I think the clear winner was “The Keeper” by Chris Cornell. That song leaves such a lasting impression, not to mention raising the hair on my arms everytime I hear it.

Hopefully the Academy Awards will get it right!!!!
