Ben Affleck emerged as the giant-killer at the Golden Globes this year, winning Best Director and Best Picture - Drama for Argo, beating Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty, Ang Lee's Life Of Pi and Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. This, just days after he was snubbed for Best Director in the Oscar nominations.
Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, which leads the Oscar race with 12 nominations, scored just one Globe for Daniel Day-Lewis who won Best Actor - Drama. Zero Dark Thirty, also an Oscar favourite, won Best Actress - Drama for Jessica Chastain.
Les Miserables scooped three Globes, the most this year, winning Best Picture - Comedy/Musical, Best Actor - Comedy/Musical for Hugh Jackman and Best Supporting Actress for Anne Hathaway.
Les Miserables also won its face-off with Silver Linings Playbook, which won just a single Globe, Best Actress - Comedy/Musical for Jennifer Lawrence. The two movies will be facing off at the Oscars again.
Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained scored twice. Christoph Waltz picked up the first award of the evening - Best Supporting Actor, his second Globe for his second Tarantino movie after Inglourious Basterds. Tarantino also won Best Screenplay.
Life Of Pi won Best Original Score while Adele won Best Original Song for Skyfall.
Homeland blitzed the TV awards winning Best Drama Series as well as Best Drama Actor and Actress for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, who won her third in a row Globe, and second in a row for Homeland.
