Some reactions to the 65th annual Golden Globe Awards, announced tonight at a news conference held by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in Beverly Hills, Calif. ...

"I kinda didn't want to watch, it would just make me tense or nervous, so I went out to see a movie at four [o'clock] and I knew I wouldn't be home until it was announced. I knew if my phone was ringing when I walked into my hotel room that I would have won. And it was. Nobody calls a loser." — David Duchovny on how he learned he had won the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV series, musical or comedy for "Californication."

It is a great honor to have been recognized with this award in a time when there are so many outstanding performances in this category." — Javier Bardem, in a statement e-mailed after learning he had won the supporting actor award in a motion picture for "No Country for Old Men."
