Wall-E wins at the Golden Globes

a scene from Wall-E

Wall-E scooped the prize for best animated film at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles.

The story of the rubbish-picking robot beat off competition from Kung Fu Panda and Bolt to win the award.

Bolt is a film which isn't out in the UK until next month, but features the voice of Miley Cyrus.

It was also a great night for British actress Kate Winslet, who walked away with two prizes for two different films.

The Golden Globes are probably the world's biggest awards ceremony after the Oscars.

This year's glitzy ceremony took place in front of an audience packed full of stars at the Beverley Hilton hotel in Hollywood.

Kate was shocked to win her awards!
Kate, 33, seemed really surprised to win the awards for best actress and best supporting actress.

When she went up on stage to collect her first, she said: "You have to forgive me as I have a habit of not winning."

And when she won her second, she said: "Is this really happening?"

But it wasn't such a great night for Miley Cyrus.

The 16-year-old had been put forward for an award for co-writing a song called I Thought I Lost You from Bolt, but didn't win the prize.

Best supporting actor

Heath Ledger was awarded the prize for best supporting actor for his role as Joker in the Dark Knight. He died in January from an accidental overdose.
