First-time winners dominated in many of the categories, among them Christian Bale and Melissa Leo for The Fighter; Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch for Glee, as well as the show itself; Boardwalk Empire and its star, Steve Buscemi; Jim Parsons for The Big Bang Theory; and Katey Sagal for Sons of Anarchy.  Nine Inch Nails rocker Trent Reznor also won his first Golden Globe for Best Original Score for The Social Network.

The Social Network was the night's big winner, scooping four prizes, including Best Drama and Best Director for David Fincher.  But the movie, about the founding of Facebook, didn't score any acting prizes.  The big winners there were Colin Firth and Natalie Portman, Best Actor and Actress in a Drama respectively, for The King's Speech and Black Swan, and Annette Bening and Paul Giamatti, Best Actress and Actor in a Comedy or Musical respectively, for The Kids are All Right and Barney's Version.

The Kids are All Right was also named Best Comedy or Musical Film, while Toy Story 3 was named Best Animated Feature.
