Motion Picture Drama for her role of Nina Sayers in Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller BLACK SWAN. On stage, Portman was beaming with girlish pride as she joked about her relationship with Benjamn Millepied who doubles as her ballet instructor and father of her unborn child. She also teasingly called her costar in the film Mila “Sweet Lips” Kunis.
Sadly, her fellow BLACK SWAN nominees were not so blessed at the award show as Mila Kunis (That 70’s Show, Family Guy) was beat out in the Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture Drama category by Melissa Leo for her role in THE FIGHTER. Darren Aronofsky’s hopes for Best Movie and Director Golden Globes were also dashed by David Fincher and the movie juggernaut that is THE SOCIAL NETWORK.
Other big winners of the night included ‘Glee’ landing Golden Globes for Best Television Series Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television for first time nominee, Chris Colfer. Jane Lynch also took home an award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the saddistic Sue Sylvester, making it a very Glee-ful evening all around.
With this major win, many experts agree that Natalie Portman is a shoo-in for another award nomination that involves yet another golden statue, one that goes by the name of Oscar.
Nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards will be announced on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 at 8:30 am EST. The awards ceremony will be hosted by Anne Hathaway and James Franco on Sunday, February 27, 2011 at 8:00 pm EST, at the Kodak Theatre.
