Two Women-Directed Films Win Major Golden Globe Awards (Video)

The delightful The Kids Are All Right was one of two films directed by women (Lisa Cholodenko) that won major Golden Globe awards. The film won in the best comedy or musical category. Annette Bening won an acting award for her role in the film as Julianne Moore's partner. Women who won acting awards included Jane Lynch, Laura Linney, Claire Danes and Natalie Portman.

Jezebel: First off, there were two women-directed films that got major awards: Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right for best comedy or musical, and In A Better World, by Danish director Susanne Bier. It's still rare enough for women to direct films, let alone be honored for them. (Although Debra Granik has been serially robbed when it comes to Winter's Bone.)
