Every January, the stars gather at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills to drink and pick up Golden Globe awards voted on reporters, editors and critics for newspapers in foreign countries. For the last three years, they've also sat there while host Ricky Gervais hurled insults from the podium. He did it all again this year, but was noticeably kinder than in years past. As for the winners, George Clooney -- who went into the awards telling everyone who would listen that he would be the night's biggest loser -- walked home with the Globe for lead actor in a motion picture drama for "The Descendants." He's also got girlfriend Stacy Keibler. It's good to be the Clooney.
