|Scott Grabs Gong for Gladiator
- Dench and Redgrave also honoured in Golden Globes
RIDLEY SCOTT claimed the top award at last night's Golden Globe TV and Film Awards but, Gladiator apart, British talent had to settle for prizes in the less glamorous categories.
Gladiator won Best Picture while Dame Judi Dench, whose husband passed away last month, won an award for Best Actress in a Movie Made For TV, with her part in the BBC production Last Of The Blonde Bombshells. Vanessa Redgrave notched up a gong for Best Supporting Actress for If These Walls Could Talk 2.
But both Catherine Zeta Jones and Julie Walters missed out on the Best Supporting Actress in a Movie prize, for their roles in Traffic and Billy Elliot. Instead Kate Hudson, daughter of Goldie Hawn, picked up the honour for her role as a groupie in Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical movie Almost Famous.
Elsewhere, A-list star Julia Roberts walked away with Best Actress for Erin Brockovich, while Tom Hanks took Best Actor for Cast Away. Taiwanese director Ang Lee scooped two awards for Best Director and Best Foreign Language Film with the critically acclaimed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Traditionally, the Globes have been viewed as a good indicator of the Oscars, nominations for which are set to take place on 13 February.
