Kate Winslet has won two Globes all on her own, best dramatic actress for Revolutionary Road and supporting actress for The Reader. The Wrestler also has two, dramatic actor for Mickey Rourke and best song for Bruce Springsteen.

Slumdog Millionaire also won best screenplay and musical score, firming up its prospects for the Academy Awards.

Featuring a generally unknown cast in a story set on the streets of Mumbai, Slumdog Millionaire knocked off four other nominated films featuring such stars as Brad Pitt, Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.
