depp_news' Coverage of the Golden Globes  
11.42am (Aussie Time) - The Golden Globes start in 15 minutes or so, and as far as I'm concerned, the fans have spoken! Whether or not the suits agree *shrugs* This poll is from MovieFone.

12.02pm - For those of you not in the states, Eonline is streaming the press conference live... from the looks of things its just an announcement of the winners, no speeches via satalite.

12.09pm - No win for Helena

12.20pm - No win for Tim but CONGRATULATIONS TO JOHNNY!!!! Johnny beat out Ryan Gosling, Tom Hanks, Philip Seymour Hoffman & John C. Reilly to win Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy!!

12.23pm - And the wins keep coming! Sweeney Todd has won Best Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy!!

Big congratulations to Johnny, Tim and everyone else involved with Sweeney Todd! *cracks open the champagne*

From the Inquirer - "Johnny Depp earned the first Golden Globes award of his career Sunday, winning best actor in a musical or comedy prize for his portrayal of a cut-throat barber in "Sweeney Todd."

It was a case of eighth time lucky for "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Depp, who had been nominated at the Globes on seven previous occasions only to come away empty-handed."


According to Eonline and their live blog, "6:23 p.m.: The "reporters" are very happy Sweeney Todd just won Best Comedy/Musical."


The audience of journalists and press agents gasped a bit when it was announced. 'Sweeney Todd' bested 'Juno' in the best motion picture musical or comedy, also a surprise to some." – David Carr The New York Times
