You can feel the warmth in the house for True Grit star Jeff Bridges, who presents the Golden Globe to Natalie Portman, winner of best actress drama for Black Swan. The Fox party goes wild.

Benjamin Millepied, Black Swan choreographer and her ballet partner in the movie, "totally wants to sleep with me," she says of the father of her unborn child. Portman will go toe to toe with Annette Bening for the best actress Oscar.

Presenters Tom Hanks and Tim Allen remind me that if animated films were allowed in the Golden Globes' comedy/musical category, they would improve the category. The Golden Globe for comedy/musical goes to Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right, again, the expected win. That's two for Kids.
