Avatar, Hangover Win Big at Golden Globes

by at . Comments

The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards have come and gone, but this is a year to remember. The winner for Best Picture in both the Drama and Comedy categories just so happen to be two of the highest grossing, crowd-pleasing films this year. When was the last time serious award winners lined up with the public opinion?

Avatar Blue Aliens 1

James Cameron's Avatar beat out The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Precious and Up in the Air to take home the Golden Globe for Best Picture (Drama), while The Hangover nabbed the Golden Globe for Best Picture (Comedy or Musical). James Cameron had an extra special night, as he ended up taking home a second Globe for Best Director as well.

With wins so substantial, it's a safe bet that the Academy Awards could follow a similar pattern. At the very least, if Avatar isn't nominated in the same categories, it will be a shock. Meanwhile, Avatar continues to rake in the dough, garnering an additional $41.3 million. Will it ever end?
