While 'Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn' wins the Best Animated Feature, 'A Separation' bags the Best Foreign Language Film and Octavia Spencer grabs the Best Supporting Actress gong.
More movie winners at the Golden Globe Awards 2012 have been revealed. Veteran actor-turned-director Woody Allen successfully took home the Best Screenplay award for his work in "Midnight in Paris". He has defeated such contenders as Michel Hazavicius ("The Artist"), Alexander Payne ("The Descendants), Steve Zallian ("Moneyball), and George Clooney ("The Ides of March").
Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen presented the Best Screenplay award, but Allen was absent during the ceremony. "Come and get it, Woody," said Kidman after announcing the winner for the category.
Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's animation "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" won the Best Animated Feature award. Channing Tatum and Jessica Alba were presenting the award to Spielberg, who thanked his partner Jackson and the whole cast in the film during his winning speech.
The winner for Best Foreign Language Film was "A Separation". The drama has beaten its strong competitors, including Angelina Jolie's directorial debut "In the Land of Blood and Honey". Madonna handed out the award to Asghar Farhadi, who helmed the acclaimed Iranian movie. The director saluted his cast and crew whom he called "a truly peace-loving people."
While Christopher Plummer was named the Best Supporting Actor, Octavia Spencer won the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in "The Help". Spencer sang praises to her co-star Jessica Chastain and said, "This is seriously nuts. With regards to domestics in this country now and then, I think Dr. King said it best. 'All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance'."
More winners in both movie and TV are about to be revealed at the ongoing Golden Globe awards that is held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles. Ricky Gervais is serving as the host at the show, which is live televised on NBC.
