Today, in the first of the major entertainment award ceremonies of 2010, the ever popular Mad Men won best drama TV series and the 2009 hit, Glee, won best comedy series. James Cameron‘s Avatar – partially made in Wellington – and The Hangover were the winners in the Best Film categories, with Cameron winning best director.
In the TV series (Drama) category, Dexter wasn’t entirely shut out of the awards with Michael C Hall and John Lithgow (series 4 villain) winning best actor and best supporting actor respectively. Meanwhile, The Good Wife‘s Juliana Marguiles won the best actress (drama) category and Big Love‘s Chloe Sevigny was thrilled to win best supporting actress – though annoyed that her dress had been stood on by the stage chaperone.
Comedy series favourite 30Rock won best supporting actor for Alec Baldwin who sadly couldn’t attend – meanwhile his colleague Tina Fey lost out to Toni Collette who won best actress for The United States of Tara.
Rounding out the main award winners, with an amazing retrospective of his work, was Martin Scorsese – winner of the Cecil B. De Mille award.
