Golden Globe Awards - The Artist And Michelle Williams Triumphs At Golden Globes

'The Artist' took home three accolades at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards last night (15.01.12), while Michelle Williams was named Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical.

The silent black-and-white movie scooped Best Motion Picture in the Comedy or Musical category, while Best Score went to composer Ludovic Bource and lead star Jean Dujardin was awarded Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical.

Michelle received her gong for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe - who won the same award in 1960 - in 'My Week With Marilyn'.

Paying tribute to her six-year-old daughter Matilda with late actor Heath Ledger, she said: "Gosh, you know I consider myself a mother first and an actress second and the first person I want to thank is my daughter. My little girl.

"Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for putting in my hand the same award that Marilyn Monroe herself won over 50 years ago."

Elsewhere, Meryl Streep picked up Best Actress in a Drama for her role as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 'The Iron Lady', and she thanked the UK for allowing her to "trample over their history".

She said: "Thank you to everyone in England who let me come over there and trample over their history."

George Clooney picked up Best Dramatic Actor for his role in 'The Descendants' - which also bagged the 'Best Dramatic Picture' gong - while Madonna was perhaps one of the more stunned winners of the evening after being awarded Best Original Song for 'Masterpiece' from her directorial debut 'W.E.'.

Martin Scorcese received a standing ovation from his peers after winning Best Director for 'Hugo', and he admitted his 12-year-old daughter Francesca originally read the book and inspired him to produce the movie.

Ricky Gervais hosted the star-studded ceremony - held at Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton Hotel and broadcast by NBC - for the second year running, and his jokes proved as controversial as ever.

Opening the show, he said: "It's so good having a job where you can get drunk and say what you want. And they still pay me.

"Tonight, you get Britain's biggest comedian hosting the world's second biggest award show on America's third biggest network. Oh, sorry, fourth. It's fourth. They're like the Oscars but without all that esteem."

"The Golden Globes are to the Oscars what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton. A bit louder, a bit trashier, a bit drunker and more easily bought. Allegedly. Nothing's been proven."
