The first big awards ceremony of the year in the world of films happened over night for us Brits, and James Cameron, 12 years after he swept awards ceremonies with Titanic, picked up right where he left off.
I expect back in 1997 when Titanic was released James Cameron and anyone else connected to the film had a feeling that it was a powerful enough movie to get the odd award, and it did in style, Avatar is a very different type of film altogether, and maybe it wasn't though to be a big awards contender, but hey it looks like it could be.
Last night Avatar managed to pick up top honors at The Golden Globes with awards for best film and another for best director in the dramatic film category.
The Golden Globes separate dramatic films from comedy and musical films and surprise hit The Hangover took top honors for best Musical or comedy.
In acting Merly Streep and Sandra Bullock got best actress awards while Jeff Bridges and Robert Downey Jr. got actor awards.
A director who had often missed out on being awarded throughout arguable one of the best careers in the movies industry, Martin Scorsese got the Cecil B. DeMille Award for achievement in cinema.
The ceremony was presented by Ricky Gervais who brought an ambitious and edgy comedy style to the ceremony often pulling the stars apart for their habits and appearances, but the audience of stars seem to take it all in good stride.
