‘A Beautiful Mind’ wins 4 Golden Globes

Associated Press

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The uplifting drama about a schizophrenic genius, "A Beautiful Mind," led winners at Sunday’s Golden Globes with four awards, including best drama and best actor for star Russell Crowe.

The hyperkinetic musical "Moulin Rouge" claimed three awards including best musical or comedy, and best musical actress for Nicole Kidman.

"A Beautiful Mind" — the story of Princeton mathematician John Nash, who won a Nobel prize for economics after years in a battle with schizophrenia — also won best screenplay and supporting actress for Jennifer Connelly.

”A Beautiful Mind’ is just a movie, just a piece of entertainment at the end of the day, folks," Crowe said. "But hopefully it helps us open our hearts, gives us a little more understanding, gives us a little more compassion.

"Moulin Rouge," a tale of forbidden love in circa-1900 Paris, also won best original score. Kidman won for her role as a dying cabaret singer.

Robert Altman took the directing honor for his murder-mystery satire "Gosford Park," which chronicles the scandals of aristocrats through the eyes of their servants.

In the television categories, HBO’s "Sex and the City" took the best comedy prize and star Sarah Jessica Parker was cited as best comedic actress. The cable network’s funeral home drama "Six Feet Under" was chosen best dramatic series.

Charlie Sheen got the comedic actor award for ABC’s "Spin City." A recovering drug abuser, he joked: "This is so surreal. This is like a sober acid trip."

Harrison Ford took home the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award.

"In anticipation of tonight, I wrote two speeches — a long one and a short one," the soft-spoken Ford deadpanned. "Because I thought it might be a long evening, I’ll give you the short one: Thank you. But it seems there might be enough time for the long one as well, which is: Thank you very much."
