Last night Toronto's Mychael Danna won his first Golden Globe for Original Score for the flick "Life of Pi," which was based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Canadian author Yann Martel. 

"I felt very, very blessed, even before this, and I speak for the whole cast and crew, to be part of the whole 'Life of Pi' experience," he said. "Beautiful, special film. A film of a lifetime."

In his acceptance speech, Danna thanked his parents as well as the director of the film, Ang Lee, who was also nominated for a Golden Globe but did not win.

Other Canadians were on-hand at the gala awards show, including Michael J. Fox, whose son Sam acted as Mr. Golden Globe. Kiefer Sutherland was also there and presented the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Mini-Series or TV Movie (which went to Ed Harris for his work on "Game Change"), while Canadian actor Nathan Fillion doled out the Best Actress in a TV series statuette to Claire Danes of "Homeland."

The "Life of Pi" composer is also nominated for two Oscars along with a British Academy Film Award.
