'Dreamgirls,' Sacha Baron Cohen, and Meryl Streep win Globe awards
UPI News Service, 01/15/2007
"Dreamgirls," the musical about a Motown girl group, was named best motion picture-comedy or musical in the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles.
"I feel lucky; I feel grateful," said producer Laurence Mark. He said "Dreamgirls" wasn't meant to be turned from successful Broadway musical to a movie until 23 years went by so "these stars could align" and make the picture what it was.
Sacha Baron Cohen won the award for best performance by an actor in a comedy or musical for his lead role in "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan."
"Thank you to every American who has not sued me so far," he said during his acceptance speech.
