The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards were an evening dominated by the low-budget romance flick "Slumdog Millionaire," which won a leading four honors, including best drama to give it a push in the race for the Oscars.

The big surprise of the night though came when Kate Winslet grabbed two Golden Globes, only the third time in the history of the awards that one performer has walked away with two acting awards.

Comeback kid Mickey Rourke, whose career had fallen on hard times, won best actor in a film drama with "The Wrestler."

The after parties almost featured as much star power as the event itself, where players like Megan Fox and Kate Beckinsale lit up the red carpet.

It's worth noting that the Golden Globe Awards are closely watched since they have historically been a pretty good indicator for future Oscar success.

Things are apparently looking up for troubled British pop singer Amy Winehouse. That's after the news that her jailed hubby, Blake Fielder-Civil is seeking a divorce. According to his lawyer, he's filed for the break-up over charges that Winehouse is cheating on him.
