AP's ahead of the TV broadcast in reporting ...

The bloody stage adaptation "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" was chosen as best musical or comedy tonight at a drab Golden Globes announcement held in lieu of the usual ritzy party because of the Hollywood writers strike.

"Sweeney Todd" star Johnny Depp won for best actor in a musical or comedy for the title role, playing a vengeful barber who slits the throats of his customers in the adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's stage musical.

Julie Christie was named best dramatic actress tonight for the gloomy drama "Away From Her," starring as a woman succumbing to Alzheimer's who forms a new attachment to a fellow patient that causes heartache for her steadfast husband.
