House rules!

Justice was served at the Golden Globes this year as Hugh Laurie bagged Best Actor in a Drama Series. I haven't seen an actor create such a memorable, lovable (hard to think of someone as crotchety as House as lovable, but I say yes, the cold-hearted bastard is!), larger-than-life character since Tony Shalhoub's Monk. The difference between Monk and House though is that the defective detective didn't have excellent writing to support his quirky character, while the demented doctor is thriving with teleplay after teleplay chock full of razor-sharp comebacks and wickedly acerbic Houseisms. It's great to see Laurie being acknowledged for his brilliantly understated yet forceful performance as the pill-popping, cane-wielding medical genius, and I hope it won't be the last time he wins an award for this role. I'm definitely a certified House junkie-- House is my Vicodin, right Laureen? ;p

In a cute twist, Geena Davis got the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama Series. Aww, Stuart Little's parents both won Golden Globes in counterpart categories, ain't that adorable?

Yey to Hugh Laurie! :D

And yes, it IS a cute coincidence that Geena Davis and he won their respective awards. Haha!

They gave the best acceptance speeches of the night too, in my opinion. Hugh Laurie's lottery gag was a riot and Geena Davis' fake little-girl-tugging-on-her-dress bit was just hilarious. :)
