Rourke's success at the Globes could boost his Oscar chances

Mickey Rourke's Golden Globe win for The Wrestler puts him right back into contention, though, in what is increasingly looking like a two-horse race.The film was criticized by some Iranians for a scene in which Rourke's character breaks an Iranian Islamic Republic's flag pole on his knees after defeating his Iranian Opponent.
