At a press conference tonight in Los Angeles, the winners of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globes were announced.

At a press conference tonight in Los Angeles, the winners of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globes were announced. There was no real "leader" as four films led with two Globes a piece: "Atonement" won best drama motion picture and best score, "No Country For Old Men" took best supporting actor for Javier Bardem and best screenplay for the Coen Brothers, "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" took best director for Julian Schnabel and best foreign language film, and Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" won best comedy/musical picture and best comedy/musical actor for star Johnny Depp.

"There Will Be Blood," "Into The Wild," "Ratatouille," "Away From Her," "La Vie En Rose" and "I'm Not There" each garnered a single award.

Two suspected Oscar hopefuls, Tony Gilroy's "Michael Clayton" and Jason Reitman's "Juno," did not recieve any awards. "Juno," particularly, had been the expected winner for Diablo Cody's screenplay. The Coen brothers, who won that award, were also the night's other big surprise when they lost best director to Julian Schnabel for "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly." Oddly, many predict that both of the Globes best picture winners ("Atonement" and "Sweeney Todd") might not find themselves among the Academy Award nominees for best picture. If "Atonement" and "Sweeney" are overlooked by Oscar, it would be the first time since 1955, when "Guys and Dolls" and "East of Eden" won in the two categories, that this has happened.

The nominations for the Academy Awards will be announced on the morning of Tuesday, January 22, 2008.

The annual Golden Globes ceremony, as well as numerous after-parties, were canceled this year due to the more than two-month long Writers Guild of America strike that continues within the industry. Winners were unveiled over the course of the half hour press conference that was telecast live from an L.A. hotel ballroom on CNN, E! and other TV networks, while NBC, which was to broadcast the three-hour ceremony, aired their own live announcement show for an hour on the television network tonight.
