British actor Colin Firth and actress Natalie Portman have won the Golden Globe awards here for their performance in the category motion picture drama.

Natalie Portman won the best actress award at the Golden Globes show on Sunday, for her role in the ballet-themed dance drama Black Swan.

In her acceptance speech she thanked her co-stars and her fiance, French ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, who she met on the movie's set and with whom she is expecting a baby.

In the film Millepied's character dismisses Portman's as someone he wouldn't want to sleep with. "It's not true. He's the best actor in the movie - he totally wants to sleep with me," she said.

Portman had been up against Halle Berry (Frankie and Alice), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone) and Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine) for the best actress award.

The Golden Globes, launching Hollywood's annual awards season, is traditionally seen as a pointer to success at the more prestigious Academy Awards on February 27.
