Golden Globe Awards Homeland Claire Danes Damian Lewis Girls Lena Dunham Game Change Downton Abbey TV News Entertainment 13579086

The Golden Globes usually like to reward the new and shiny. This year, they went back to some of their favorites but did crown current TV "It" girl Lena Dunham. (Read Rob's review of film awards here.)

THE GOOD
Don Cheadle’s deserving win for “House of Lies” was a great surprise, right on time as it returns for a second season. Ditto for Dunham and “Girls,” back now on HBO for its sophomore run.

Showtime continued its incredible run of late with a clean sweep of the drama categories, as  "Homeland" and leading lady Claire Danes repeated from last year while co-star Damian Lewis won for the first time. They are all reigning Emmy champs. 

THE BAD
Indeed, tonight seemed like an Emmys replay. Maggie Smith for "Downton Abbey," again. “Game Change,” again. That telefilm's star Julianne Moore, again. Kevin Costner for the miniseries "Hatfields and McCoys," again. 

THE UGLY
Salma Hayek and Paul Rudd presenting the Best Drama Series category – sloppy, awkward and strange.

And I'll have whatever Aziz Ansari is. Were his all-over-the-place ramblings when announcing the Best TV Comedy Actress category part of his act, or was he just having a really, really good time?
