January 16, 2006 report from the StudioClub.com


"Brokeback Mountain" takes four trophies at the Golden Globes and is considered the top contender for the Academy Awards, won Golden Globes for best dramatic picture, best director for Ang Lee, best screenplay

and best song.

The Johnny Cash biography "Walk the Line" took three top trophies, including best musical or comedy as well as the acting awards in that category. For playing the Man in Black, Joaquin Phoenix was named best actor. Reese Witherspoon for the Globe for best actress for playing Cash's  wife, country music legend June Carter.

"This is early, I haven't had a drink yet," Clooney joked when he took the stage to accept his award, the first award of the night for playing CIA agent in oil drama "Syriana."  But he turned serious when acknowledging the film's writer/director Stephen Gaghan, as well as Warner Independent Pictures for releasing such a politically charged film.

"These are tough questions to ask, and I'm very proud that the studios are willing to ask these questions," he said about "Syriana's" take on the Middle East and the politics of oil.

The 63rd annual Golden Globes were selected by the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., a group of often obscure journalists covering film and television for a variety of international publications (the Oscars, by comparison, are decided by about 5,800 voters).
