Posted Jan. 14, 2008 -- Queen Latifah's emotional performance as an HIV-positive woman in HBO Films' "Life Support" won her a Golden Globe last night. The best supporting actress win makes her the only African American to nab a Globe this year.

She won without the fanfare, unfortunately. The ongoing writers' strike forced the cancellation of the usually glitzy red carpet and award ceremony. Instead viewers watched a lifeless hour of announcements.

It was not a good night for "American Gangster" star Denzel Washington, who lost the best actor category to Daniel-Day Lewis ("There Will Be Blood"). Both "American Gangster" and "The Great Debaters," which Washington also co-produced, were beat out for best drama by the tragic romance "Atonement."

Other Golden Globe winners include:

Johnny Depp, best actor in a musical for "Sweeney Todd"

Javier Barden, best supporting actor for "No Country for Old Men"

Julie Christie, best actress in a drama for "Away From Her."

Jeremy Piven, best actor in TV show for "Entourage"

"Mad Men," best TV drama

"Ratatouille," best animated film

"30 Rock," best TV comedy
