ATONEMENT and SWEENEY TODD Are Big Winners at Golden Globes

 Monday, January 14-------It was, without a doubt, the strangest Golden Globe Awards in memory. Not only was there not the lavish and extravagantly catered affair at the Beverly Hilton, but no actors, writers or directors were present to make acceptment speeches. In fact, the whole event was nothing more than a glorified Press Conference and some rather boring (and ratings challenged) telecasts on NBC, CNN and some other media outlets. In spite of the Writers Guild strike, the Awards were indee...
