James Cameron’s Avatar beat out ‘Up in the Air’, ‘Precious’, ‘The Hurt Locker’, and ‘Inglourious Basterds’ for the top movie prize at the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards.

Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Comedy or Musical: Robert Downey Jr. He said, “I don’t have anybody to thank,” joked the Sherlock Holmes star when accepting his award. “I’m certainly not going to thank Warner Brothers… They needed me!

Here is the list of others winners at the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards:
