The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards were taking place live from Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Sunday night and we are going to give you the complete list of winners.
Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler were set to crack jokes as part of their hosting duties at the Golden Globe ceremony, which honored the best in film and television.
It was expected to be a big night for films like Lincoln, Argo and Django Unchained because those three films scored the most nominations – the Civil War epic Lincoln received seven nods, five each for Argo and Django, while other contenders like Zero Dark Thirty, Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook scored four nominations each.
However, the best drama winner at Sunday’s ceremony, beating out an awards-season favorite Lincoln, was the Iran hostage thriller Argo, that also claimed the directing prize for Ben Affleck who missed out on an Oscar nomination!
Look, I don’t care what the award is. When they put your name next to the names she just read off, it’s an extraordinary thing in your life.
Les Miserables wins three Globes, including best musical or comedy, while Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway claimed acting prizes.
Lincoln lost all nods but one, for Daniel Day-Lewis as best actor in the title role of Lincoln.
Now two-times Globe and Oscar winner Day-Lewis said:
If I had this on a timeshare basis with my wonderful gifted colleagues, I might just hope to keep it for one day of the year, and I’d be happy with that.
Jessica Chastain won the Globe for dramatic actress for tracking down Osama bin Laden in Zero Dark Thirty, while other acting prizes went to Jennifer Lawrence as best musical or comedy actress for the oddball romance Silver Linings Playbook and Christoph Waltz as supporting actor for the slave-revenge tale Django Unchained.
Quentin Tarantino, who won best screenplay for Django Unchained had this to say:
You guys don’t know how important you are to my process. I don’t want input. I don’t want you to tell me if I’m doing anything wrong. Heavens forbid. When I read it to you, I hear it through your ears, and it lets me know I’m on the right track.
The Scottish tale Brave won for best animated film, while Michael Haneke‘s old-age love story Amour, won the Globe for foreign-language film.
And finally, pop star Adele and co-writer Paul Epworth won for best song for Skyfall, while the prize for musical score went to Mychael Danna for the lost-at-sea tale Life of P. Not to mention television winners, which included ‘Girls,’ ‘Homeland,’ and ‘Game Change’.
