The 2012 Golden Globe Awards went as expected for the film nominees -- and defied all expectations when it came to TV winners.

For the big screen contenders, favorites "The Descendants" and "The Artist" took home the Best Picture awards, for Drama and Musical/Comedy, respectively. George Clooney and Jean Dujardin won the corresponding Best Actor awards. In the main actress categories, Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams both won for playing historical icons; Streep, for her turn as Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady," and Williams for her role as Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn."

On the TV side, "Homeland" won Best Drama Series, giving the freshman series a win over "Boardwalk Empire" and "Modern Family" repeated as Best Comedy. Not too unexpected, sure, but how about Best Actors: for Drama, Kelsey Grammer won for "Boss" and in Comedy, Matt LeBlanc won for "Episodes."

Meanwhile, Ricky Gervais was rather timid, getting in some fun digs at the HFPA and Kim Kardashian in his monologue, but largely avoiding the low hanging fruit: no Charlie Sheen, no Tom Cruise, hardly any divorce jokes outside of one mention in his monologue.

Here's the entire list of winners; for all the in-show gossip and fun, click over to our live blog. It's no longer live, but it's still a fun read.
