A dream night for Beyonce's new movie
Starring Beyonce Knowles, the film picked up awards for best musical or comedy picture, best supporting actor for Eddie Murphy and best supporting actress for Jennifer Hudson.
Babel, the forthcoming cinema release featuring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, was awarded best drama, while Martin Scorsese can add the best director trophy to his mantelpiece for his gangster epic, The Departed.
The nods for best actress and actor in a drama went to Helen Mirren and Forrest Whitaker respectively, for their roles in The Queen and The Last King Of Scotland.
Widely seen as an indication of how next month's Oscar awards may go, the Golden Globes are slightly different in that they split the honours into those for musicals or comedies and those for dramas.
