The old razzle-dazzle apparently worked on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which gave ''Chicago'' three Golden Globe awards, including Best Motion Picture, Best Actress (Renée Zellweger), and Best Actor (Richard Gere), all in the Musical or Comedy category. It was the most honored movie of the night. Miramax was the big winner among studios, representing 10 of the 14 honorees.
Among TV honorees, ''The Shield'' was named best drama, and its star Michael Chiklis was named best actor in a drama. ''The Gathering Storm'' also won two awards, for Best TV Movie and Best Actor, for Albert Finney's portrayal of Winston Churchill. Of the 11 TV awards, 10 went to cable, with 7 of those going to HBO.
This was the 60th year of the Golden Globes, which were chosen by the 90 or so members of the HFPA and were handed out in a ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hilton that was broadcast live on NBC.
