'The Fighter' Wins Two Awards Including Best Supporting Actor and Actress"The Social Network," as expected, won big at tonight's Golden Globes taking home Best Picture, Best Score, Best Screenplay and Best Director, putting it at the front of the pack for next month's Oscars. And while the ceremony was a bit of a snore, there were some very pleasant surprises. "The Kids Are All Right" earned a Best Actress win for Annette Bening and rightfully won over the thoroughly tepid pack that made up the Best Motion Picture (Comedy Or Musical) category. Susanne Bier's "In A Better World" truly shocked with a big Best Foreign Language Film win, while Paul Giamatti beat Johnny Depp twice over in the Best Actor (Comedy Or Musical) category. But just to prove payola still works, "Burlesque" took home a statue for Best Original Song. Finally, Robert De Niro took home the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement.

Picture Is Also A Surprisingly Funny, Touching Story About The Foibles Of Family; Bale Seems Oscar-Nom BoundThere are onscreen dramas that claim to be about family, but they never really involve the protagonist having to make difficult decisions. Often the family is too saintly, or too important, to ignore. Other times, the best route for the protagonist to follow is to form a surrogate family, as blood relatives appear untrustworthy or devious. Rarely does a film come along that respects its audience enough to present the clear conflicts and difficulties of being around the ones who love you. Whether it be their all-encompassing love, their lack of education, or your own stubborness, the bonds that define what a family means can become frayed. When you love someone, it takes more than a mirror to show you that you have the capacity to simultaneously be terrible.

PUNCH. The remains of a car burn in the darkness. Whomever was present for such a disaster no longer breathes air. PUNCH. A black screen, the title “Welcome To The Rileys” proudly displayed at the center of the screen. PUNCH. The visage of a burly man smoking a cigarette comes into frame. While the location is a suburban backyard, the darkness seems to swallow this man’s face, who entirely has the camera’s attention. In the darkness, smoke pouring out of his mouth, he looks like a caged beast, frustrated by being marginalized in captivity.
