And the nominees were:

Jodie Foster in "Carnage"
Charlize Theron in "Young Adult"
Kristen Wiig in "Bridesmaids"
Michelle Williams in "My Week with Marilyn"
Kate Winslet in "Carnage"

And best Ricky Gervais impression went to Seth Rogen for announcing his undying love for co-presenter Kate Beckinsale, or at least one particular organ's affection for her. As for the award, Michelle Wiliams' rightly lauded performance as Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn" got the nod, perhaps a precursor to an Oscar nomination. We thought it was particularly noteworthy that Williams mentioned the fact that Marilyn Monroe won a Golden Globe, although the sex symbol never won an Oscar.
