Brady Dominates Last Night's First-Ever 'Globie' Awards

The Boston Globe presented its first annual Globie Awards last night at The House of Blues across from Fenway Park. A bevy of celebrities showed up—including David Ortiz and Rob Gronkowski. The big winner of the night was Tom Brady (who was not there)—garnering six Globies (including Athlete Of The Year). Oddly, the Voice Of Boston Award went to Mike Gorman—although some earlier reports stated that new NESN TV play-by-play voice Dave O'Brien had overtaken Gorman in late voting. Virtual hanging chads, perhaps? Maybe the Supreme Court can intervene. FenwayNation was lucky enough to cover the event, and here are the "winners":
