2006 Golden Globe Nominees and Winners

By

Were your favorites nominated? Were your favorites snubbed? The casts of "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" scored big at the Golden Globes. In fact, ABC turned out to be the big winner of the evening with wins in four major categories including, Best TV Show in both the Drama and Comedy categories. My personal award for best speech goes to Geena Davis, who had everybody cracking up. Sandra Oh's speech was absolutely charming and showed that she is definitely nothing like her character on "Grey's Anatomy." All-in-all, it was nice to see a new breed of winners this year.
