"The Social Network" – 6/5
"The King's Speech" – 7/5
"The Fighter" – 6/1
"Black Swan" – 12/1
"Inception" – 50/1

Michael Douglas, the presenter for this last award, won Best Drama Actor for "Wall Street" in 1987 and received the Cecil B. DeMille honor in 2004. After his recent bout with cancer, he observed, "There has to be an easier way to get a standing ovation."

Looks like The Social Network is rolling to an Oscar for Best Picture...

James Franco, "127 Hours" – 9/1
Jesse Eisenberg, "The Social Network" – 14/1
Mark Wahlberg, "The Fighter" – 40/1
Ryan Gosling, "Blue Valentine" – 80/1

Sandra Bullock should get used to saying Firth's name as he is the most likely Oscar champ. After his poor performance at the podium at the Critics' Choice kudos on Friday, he delivered a winning speech tonight. He demonstrated a wry wit and charm that will do well in the weeks ahead as he collects more hardware.

After her BFCA win Friday, Leo is the clear frontrunner at the Oscars. The exhuberant Leo was utterly charming at the podium, mixing laughs with expressions of love for the rest of the cast and director David O. Russell. And she beamed as she thanked the HFPA for rewarding women of a certain age.

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 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")
Hans Zimmer ("Inception")

Composers who remained remarkably composed as they accepted their first Globe.

"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

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.
