Golden Globes Winners Include George Clooney, Michelle Williams

The 2012 Golden Globe Awards wasn't quite as controversial or lewd as Ricky Gervais' memorable turn as host at last year's show — indeed, this time around, the British comedian's jokes were missing some of that signature sting — but the results were no less interesting for cinephiles keeping a watchful eye on the road towards Oscar.

As many expected, "The Artist" and "The Descendants" were the big winners of the evening, with Best Motion Picture wins for both films as well as Best Actor awards for Jean Dujardin and George Clooney. But there were surprises in the mix as well, including what's surely a universally approved victory for "Hugo" director Martin Scorsese, a screenplay nod for Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" and a Best Actress - Comedy award for Michelle Williams.
