Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Avatar. Avatar Avatar Avatar. Jeff Bridges. That pretty much sums up a surprising night at the Golden Globes yesterday. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association shocked everyone when they awarded Avatar Best Picture and Best Director. Even Cameron agreed that his ex-wife, Kathryn Bigelow, should've got the award for The Hurt Locker.

Others were more expected - Up got Best Animation, Meryl Streep struck gold with Julie & Julia (one of two nominations), and Jason Reitman got his well-earned Screenplay award for Up in the Air - but did anyone see Robert Downey Jr winning Best Comedy Actor for Sherlock Holmes? Even fewer predicted The Hangover walking away with Best Comedy Picture. Mostly because (500) Days of Summer deserved it.

But on a night when sense when out the window and blue was the in colour, it's hard to grumble about such as thing as taste. Who needs that when you've got $500 million and a fistful of 3-D glasses? Taste certainly ran away once our host Ricky Gervais found his stride. Quipping, plugging and drinking his way through the evening, he came up with several corkers which stunned the room of stars ("I like a drink as much as the next man. Unless the next man is... Mel Gibson!")

The highlight, however, was Martin Scorsese's win of the Cecil B DeMille Award, which saw Robert De Niro and Leonard DiCaprio graphically describing the director's sexual affair with film reel. Then old Marty himself stood up and waggled his eyebrows for a bit. It was lovely.

There were some TV shows in there too. Including Mad Men, of course. Glee won stuff as well. But the memory the stays in my head? Arnold Schwarzenegger trying to pronounce "Avatar". Read on for the full list of winners. And a clip of Arnie's incredible tribute to James Cameron. And then head over here for our full-on golden photo gallery of winners.
