Diddy donned a tux and stepped out at Sunday’s (January 16) Golden Globes event, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press. During the evening, the Bad Boy head stopped by the official after party and chatted with Mark Wahlberg of “The Fighter.” And while Diddy wasn’t nominated for his performance as the charismatic music exec Sergio Roma in the comedy “Get Him To The Greek,” the film did give the real-life music impresario a new found strength.
“I’ve done a lot of drama mostly my whole career, with Broadway and ‘Monster’s Ball’ and stuff like that — my short little career. But when I did ‘Get Him to the Greek,’ I really fell in love with making people laugh,” Diddy told MTV News on the red carpet at the Golden Globes. “I have a knack for improvisation, and hopefully I’ll be able to make people laugh more.”
Early on, Christian Bale took home the first Globe of the night, nabbing Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for “The Fighter,” a win that had been widely predicted.
“You can only give a loud performance like the one I gave when you have a quiet anchor,” he said, complimenting Mark Wahlberg’s contribution to the film.
Widely predicted, as well, was Annette Bening’s best comedic win for “The Kids Are All Right.” Fighting off a shaky voice, she spoke movingly about bringing a warts-and-all portrait of a lesbian couple to the big screen. Later in the show, Melissa Leo bounded up onto the stage after nabbing best dramatic supporting actress for “The Fighter.” “Look, Mom, I got a Golden Globe!” she squealed.
