The Golden Globe award for best actor mini-series TV movie goes to Al Pacino for channeling Jack Kevorkian in HBO's You Don't Know Jack. He's received 15 Globe nominations and won for Serpico and Angels in America, and won the Cecil B. DeMille award in 2001. He was great in this movie. But I was rooting for Edgar Ramirez, star of Canal Plus mini-series drama winner Carlos.

Claire Danes won best actress mini-series for HBO's Temple Grandin. It's a big night for HBO. Temple Grandin herself is very moved. "It was a risky movie to make that wouldn't have been made by anyone but HBO," says Danes, looking smashing in hot pink. She also thanks her late agent Ed Limato.
