Johnny Depp, ‘No Country For Old Men’ Are Big Winners At Downsized Golden Globes

'Juno' strikes out at awards announcement, which featured no nominees or other stars.

BEVERLY HILLS, California — Instead of Nicholson, Jolie and hundreds of stars, the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton opened its doors to “The Insider,” “Entertainment Tonight” and hundreds of journalists. Instead of striding the red carpet in Versace and Donna Karan, stars stayed home resplendent in sweatpants and pajama bottoms. But for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the motto of the evening was “The show must go on.”

The 65th annual Golden Globe Awards went off without a hitch, even if, among others, they didn’t boast the man who actually played Hitch. Normally Hollywood’s biggest party of the year, the Golden Globes forfeited their usual ceremony and instead broadcast a stripped-down news conference , hoping to appease writers who promised to picket the awards show if it were put on as usual. It didn’t matter. Ending in solidarity and support with the ongoing writers’ strike , not a single actor or actress showed up to the awards.

“As you all know, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association could not present the awards this year in a ceremony,” HFPA President Jorge Camara said by way of an introduction. “We all hope that the writers’ strike will be over soon so that everybody can go back to making great movies and television shows.”

Although they boycotted the ceremony, many stars nevertheless came up big winners, including Johnny Depp, who after eight nominations finally won his first Golden Globe as best actor in a comedy or musical for “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” directed by frequent collaborator Tim Burton. “Sweeney Todd” also won for best comedy or musical.

Also winning big was “No Country for Old Men,” which took home two awards: best screenplay (Joel and Ethan Coen) and best supporting actor (Javier Bardem). In a night full of surprises, however, the biggest surprise might very well have been that the critically acclaimed flick did not win either best director or best drama. The former honor went to Julian Schnabel for “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” while the latter award went to “Atonement,” which only took home two awards from its seven nominations .

The night’s biggest loser, however, might very well have been “Juno,” the coming-of-age comedy about a pregnant teen. Nominated for a slew of awards — including best musical or comedy, best screenplay (Diablo Cody) and best actress (Ellen Page) — the flick didn’t win a single Globe despite being heavily favored in several categories.

While Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder’s “Into the Wild” soundtrack didn’t win for best original score, his tune “Guaranteed” from the Sean Penn-directed flick did take home the prize for best original song.

The ceremony itself was a brisk 29 minutes, a far cry from the typically bloated affair the Globes have come to represent.

Announcing the awards were several entertainment journalists, including Lara Spencer from “The Insider,” Brooke Anderson from CNN’s “Showbiz Tonight” and Mary Hart from “Entertainment Tonight.”

“I just want to point out that all of us announcing the awards are not major movie stars,” Spencer joked, acknowledging what she called “the elephant in the room.”
