Sam Worthington, Tom Hanks, Paul McCartney, Zoe Saldana: Golden Globes Photos

Neither Sam Worthington nor Zoe Saldana – or any other Avatar cast member, for that matter – was nominated for a Golden Globe. James Cameron was probably none too pleased. As Steven Zeitchik reports in his Los Angeles Times blog, Cameron remarked that "everything [that the avatars in the movie] do is determined by the actors ... There's a bit of a learning curve for the acting community to really understand what we did."

Tom Hanks' "nice guy" image nearly came crashing down when he said that Meryl Streep goes to bed with Alec Baldwin in the best picture (comedy or musical) nominee It's Complicated, and that she goes to bed with Stanley Tucci in her other comedy nominee, Julie & Julia. Hanks added that Streep's second partner was "a substantial move up" from her first. Tucci, though a step up on Streep's sex ladder, didn't seem to find the joke funny. Some other audience members didn't, either, as some loud oooooooohhhhhs were heard in the room.

A similar reaction greeted host Ricky Gervais when he made a joke about presenter Paul McCartney traveling coach so as to save money, an allusion to McCartney's expensive divorce last year. McCartney then plugged Robert Zemeckis' planned 3D remake of Yellow Submarine, and told the audience that "animation is not just for children, but it's also for adults who take drugs."

That may well explain why so many animated films are major hits the world over.
