Hbo Dominates Tv Globes Awards

At the Golden Globes awards Sunday night, HBO's seven-part miniseries about the life of the second U.S. president dominated the presentations as John Adams picked up awards for best mini-series, best actress in a miniseries or TV movie (Laura Linney), best actor in a miniseries or TV movie (Paul Giamatti) and best supporting actor (Tom Wilkinson). AMC'S Mad Men was named best TV dramatic series. Anna Paquin received the Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama for the HBO film True Blood while Gabriel Byrne nabbed the award for best actor in HBO's Treatment Laura Dern won for best supporting actress in HBO's Recount. NBC, whose entertainment programs were the lowest rated of any broadcast network last year, received the only Golden Globes presented to any broadcaster -- all of them for 60 Rock best comedy or musical, best actor (Alec Baldwin); and best actress (Tina Fey). Coincidentally, the Globes ceremonies were televised by NBC, which received compliments from some reviewers for its execution. The Hollywood Reporter commented that NBC "put on a seamless telecast that was noteworthy for its lack of bells and whistles -- a welcome thing at a time when having camera shots emerge from the rafters seems to be a virtue." But former Los Angeles Times and New York Times Hollywood correspondent Sharon Waxman commented on her blog, "It was a night in which the dresses were far more interesting to look at than anything up on stage."
