LOS ANGELES, Jan. 16 (UPI) -- "The Kids Are All Right" won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy Film in Beverly Hills, Calif., Sunday night.

The movie's star, Annette Bening, also picked up the prize for Best Actress in a Comedy Film at the star-studded event at the Beverly Hilton.

"Kids" is about a lesbian couple whose happy home life is turned upside-down when their teenage children try to get to know their biological father.

"It was a labor of love for all of us. To be able to unite that with a moment like this is truly phenomenal," Bening said as she collected her trophy.

Paul Giamatti won the Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy Film for his work in "Barney's Version."

"I'm a little jacked up because I ate five boxes of the free Godiva chocolates," he joked.

"I always think that a mistake has been made because the other gentlemen in this category are my superiors in every regard as men and actors, so I acknowledge them," he said, referring to fellow nominees Johnny Depp, Jake Gyllenhaal and Kevin Spacey. "('Barney's Version') is an extraordinary movie to be a part of and people busted their asses to get it made."
