Winslet, Rourke Join 'Slumdog' for Top Honors at Golden Globe Awards

By Rich King on January 12, 2009

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — "Slumdog Millionaire" more than competed with the big dogs, winning four honors, including best drama, to top all winners at Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills.

Emerging as perhaps the film to beat at the upcoming Academy Awards, "Slumdog" also earned awards for director Danny Boyle, screenwriter Simon Beaufoy and composer A.R. Rahman for best musical score.

"Is this really happening to me? My first film wins four Golden Globes? I just can't believe it," co-star Freida Pinto told reporters backstage, according to The Associated Press.

In one of the night's most anticipated moments, the late Heath Ledger won best supporting actor honors for his turn as the Joker in "The Dark Knight."

"All of us who worked with Heath on 'The Dark Knight' accept with an awful mixture of sadness but incredible pride," said the film’s director, Christopher Nola, who accepted on behalf of Ledger, who died from an accidental prescription overdose last January. "After Heath passed, you saw a hole ripped in the future of cinema."

In the top acting categories, Mickey Rourke inched another step closer in his comeback, winning best dramatic actor honors for "The Wrestler." Kate Winslet, meanwhile, won best dramatic actress for "Revolutionary Road," her second award after opening the night with supporting actress honors for "The Reader."

British actress Sally Hawkins was a surprise winner for best actress in a comedy or musical as the eternal optimist in "Happy-Go-Lucky." Best actor in a comedy or musical honors went to Colin Farrell for "In Bruges."

On the television side, HBO’s "John Adams" outdistanced the competition, sweeping its way to four awards, including best miniseries or movie.

NBC’s "30 Rock" followed close behind, winning three honors, including best TV comedy. The show’s stars, Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, won best comedy actress and actor, respectively.

It was also a big night for AMC’s “Mad Men,” which won best series drama.
