69th Annual Golden Globe Winners: 'The Artist' & 'The Descendants' Lead The Way

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist January 15, 2012 at 8:11PM

Okay, a few comments until our deeper analysis tomorrow. First thing, "The Descendants" -- while taking two awards -- dosen't jump to immediate frontrunner status. "The Help," with its civil rights theme, was never a movie that was going to connect in a big way with the HFPA so it can't be counted out yet. That said, "The Descendants" is undoubtedly going to be player at the Oscars, with Clooney looking more and more like Best Actor material. But if anything, the Globes tonight proved Harvey Weinstein is always a force to be reckoned with. His films took home six awards -- including 3 for "The Artist" -- more than any other studio. And he knows exactly how this game is played, so watch The Weinstein Company work hard over the next few weeks.

Golden Globes: Descendants, Artists Big Winners

Okay, a few comments until our deeper analysis tomorrow. First thing, "The Descendants" -- while taking two awards -- dosen't jump to immediate frontrunner status. "The Help," with its civil rights theme, was never a movie that was going to connect in a big way with the HFPA so it can't be counted out yet. That said, "The Descendants" is undoubtedly going to be player at the Oscars, with Clooney looking more and more like Best Actor material. But if anything, the Globes tonight proved Harvey Weinstein is always a force to be reckoned with. His films took home six awards -- including 3 for "The Artist" -- more than any other studio. And he knows exactly how this game is played, so watch The Weinstein Company work hard over the next few weeks.
