Kelly Macdonald, "Boardwalk Empire" – 2/1
Sofia Vergara, "Modern Family" – 3/1
Julia Stiles, "Dexter" – 80/1
Hope Davis, "The Special Relationship" – 100/1

Last year, Lynch lost this catch-all category to Chloe Sevigny ("Big Love") before going on to win the Emmy last fall. The deadpan Lynch wrung laughs from the crowd as the three-hour show hit the halfway point.

BEST SCREENPLAY
"The Social Network" – 3/1
"The King's Speech" – 4/1
"The Kids Are All Right" – 9/1
"Inception" – 33/1
"127 Hours" – 50/1

BEST TV MOVIE/MINI ACTRESS
Hayley Atwell ("Pillars of the Earth")
Claire Danes ("Temple Grandin")
Judi Dench ("Return to Cranford")
Romola Garai ("Emma")
Jennifer Love Hewitt ("The Client List")

"Televisual" says Tilda Swinton. Okay, first Andrew Garfield says "inspiringly" -- are the English just making up words now? Danes also received the Emmy for this role. She won the TV Drama Actress prize back in 1994 for the single season of "My So Called Life." Danes was emotional as she lauded the work of the real-life woman she portrayed. And, unlike the Emmys, the actress remembered to thank her husband Billy Crudup.

BEST TV MOVIE/MINI ACTOR
Idris Elba ("Luther")
Ian McShane ("Pillars of the Earth")
Al Pacino ("You Don’t Know Jack")
Dennis Quaid ("The Special Relationship")
Edgar Ramirez ("Carlos")

No surprise that the Emmy champ repeated here. Pacino now has two Drama Film Globes ("Serpico," 1973; "Scent of a Woman," 1992) and two of these TV prizes (the other was for "Angels in America," 2004).

BEST COMEDY/ MUSICAL ACTRESS
Annette Bening, "The Kids Are All Right" – 1/5
Julianne Moore, "The Kids Are All Right"  –15/2
Anne Hathaway, "Love and Other Drugs" – 14/1
Emma Stone, "Easy A" – 16/1
Angelina Jolie, "The Tourist" – 50/1

Next year, the HFPA should hire Robert Downey, Jr. to host. He savvily characterized the show as "mean-spirited with a slightly sinister undertone." His riff on the nominees was delightful, saucy but sweet. Why was Bening, the widely-expected winner, so far back in the room? And why did it look like Bening was reading her monotone speech off the teleprompter? She redeemed herself at the end with the reference to her husband Warren Beatty as the winner of the 1962 Globe as most promising newcomer.

BEST ANIMATED FILM
"Despicable Me"
"How to Train Your Dragon"
"The Illusionist"
"Tangled"
"Toy Story 3"

Just how slight is Justin Bieber that Hailee Steinfeld towers over him? No surprise as the best-reviewed movie of the year wins this race?

BEST SONG
"Bound to You" ("Burlesque")
"Coming Home" ("Country Strong")
"I See the Light" ("Tangled")
"There’s a Place for Us" ("The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader")
"You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me" ("Burlesque")

This is the first win in five noms for Diane Warren; could she finally prevail at the Oscars with her seventh bid? An emotional Warren made special mention of her publicist, the late Ronni Chasen.
 

BEST SCORE
Alexandre Desplat ("The King’s Speech")
Danny Elfman ("Alice in Wonderland")
A.R. Rahman ("127 Hours")
Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross ("The Social Network")

"Boardwalk Empire" – 15/8
"Mad Men" – 11/5
"The Walking Dead" – 5/1
"Dexter" – 11/2
"The Good Wife" – 7/1

Another HBO hit about New Jersey gangsters, "The Sopranos," also won this award for its first season back in 1999. And yes, that was Mark Wahlberg up onstage. When not acting, he is a prolific producer of both TV ("Entourage") and film ("The Fighter").

Steve Buscemi, "Boardwalk Empire" – 11/4
Bryan Cranston, "Breaking Bad" – 9/2
Michael C. Hall, "Dexter" – 5/1
Hugh Laurie, "House" – 6/1

Buscemi was a supporting film actor nominee in 2001 for "Ghost World" but lost to eventual Oscar champ Jim Broadbent ("Iris"). He gave a speedy acceptance speech but still got the wrap-up sign.

Eric Stonestreet, "Modern Family" – 3/2
Chris Noth, "The Good Wife" – 14/1
David Strathairn, "Temple Grandin" – 16/1

BEST TV/MINI-SERIES
"Carlos"
"The Pacific"
"The Pillars of the Earth"
"Temple Grandin"
"You Don't Know Jack"

Is it a really long film or a TV mini-series? "Carlos" also earned recognition from some of the film critics groups this year. "Carlos" winning over "Temple Grandin" and "The Pacific" is a stunner.

BEST TV DRAMA ACTRESS
Julianna Marguiles, "The Good Wife" – 1/3
Kyra Sedgwick, "The Closer" – 4/1
Elisabeth Moss, "Mad Men" – 13/2
Katy Sagal, "Sons of Anarchy" – 15/2
Piper Perabo, "Covert Affairs" – 100/1

This is Sagal's first win in five nominations. She contended for Best TV Comedy Actress for "Married ... With Children." As Katy said, "I am shocked ... but kind of prepared." She acknowledged the kindness of the HFPA; the Emmys have yet to nominate her.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Christian Bale, "The Fighter" – 7/5
Geoffrey Rush, "The King's Speech" – 15/8
Michael Douglas, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" – 12/5
Jeremy Renner, "The Town" – 33/1
Andrew Garfield, "The Social Network" – 50/1

Bale refers to HFPA as "oddball characters" he encounters on press junkets. Now, he thinks of them as "wise and respectable." In his gracious acceptance speech, he salutes the "quiet, stoic character" created by Mark Wahlberg and references the potential punch-up between supporting actress contenders Amy Adams and Melissa Leo. He concluded with a heartfelt moment via the camera to his little girl at home.

The host: Ricky Gervais.

The verdict: The guy is a comedic genius.

The opening monologue: More hits than misses. (Mostly Charlie Sheen jokes.)
