The 2013 Golden Globes Winners Are In!

The Golden Globe Awards are always a good time. With the wine flowing freely at the stars' tables, it's no wonder acceptance speeches are funnier and sore losers are fewer than at some other awards ceremonies we could name. This year, with the hilarious Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the festivities, the show was even more entertaining than usual! (Sorry, Ricky Gervais.) But the competition for trophies was still dead serious!

The drama field offered a bit of an upset. While Daniel Day-Lewis took home the Best Actor prize for 'Lincoln' as expected, the movie and director Steven Spielberg lost out to 'Argo' and its helmer Ben Affleck. (No doubt a nice consolation prize for being snubbed for an Oscar nom for directing!) Affleck forgot to thank 'Argo' producer George Clooney in his acceptance speech—but luckily, wife Jennifer Garner was presenting an award afterward, so she made amends on Ben's behalf.

All-star musical ensemble "Les Miz" had a strong showing as expected. The movie took honours for best comedy or musical. Hugh Jackman was named best actor in that category, while Anne Hathaway was recognized as best supporting actress.

Best actress in a drama was awarded to 'Zero Dark Thirty' star Jessica Chastain. In the musical/comedy category, it was Jennifer Lawrence who took the win, for 'Silver Linings Playbook.' Christoph Waltz of "Django Unchained" was honoured as best supporting actor, while the movie's writer-director Quentin Tarantino was recognized for best screenplay. New mom Adele turned up for a rare night out and ended up collecting the award for best song, for James Bond theme 'Skyfall.'

Here are the winners of the movie-related Golden Globes categories. And of course, the question now becomes… Who will repeat at the Oscars in February?
