Golden Globes 2013: All The Winners And Ceremony Highlights

14 January 2013 by

Last night, the glitterati of Hollywood - that's the big screen and the little screen, gathered together for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. Honouring the stars of cinema and television, it's considered in the biz to be a little lighter than the Oscars in the fun department - afterall, it's the first of the majors this award season so no-one has yet had time to get fed up of dressing up and listening to speeches. We never tire of it and after scoping out the best dressed on the red carpet, we were pumped for the ceremony itself. Here's what happened...

1. Let's hear it for the girls

Possibly two of the funniest women on screen, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the awards show (Ricky Gervais was perhaps just a little too edgy for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association). Of course, we knew they'd bring their unique brand of comedy to proceedings (they were both nominated for best actress in a tv series - comedy or musical) but in their hilarious opening of the show, they gave a wonderful shout out to all the fabulous female nominees. Damn straight, ladies.

2. Jodie Foster bowed out gracefully

Jodie Foster showed everyone a thing or two about acceptance speeches. She was honoured with the Cecil B. DeMille award which celebrates an outstanding contribution to the industry. Joining the likes of Martin Scorsese and Walt Disney who've previously won this prestigious accolade, Jodie gave an emotional and heartfelt acceptance speech. She thanked people, she talked about privacy (important when you've been on screen since you were three), she came out - again - and she alluded to a new career which may see her behind the camera instead of in front of it. Oh, and she's 50 and totally awesome.

3. Adele made her post-baby comeback

Adele sure knows a thing or two about suspense. 12 weeks after giving birth to her son, she made her first public appearance at the Golden Globes dressed in her trademark black (Burberry, no less) and came along for 'a night out' as she described it. It was a good job too as she scooped up the award for Best Original Song for her Bond theme Skyfall. Looking absolutely radiant she took to the stage to thank boyfriend Simon Konecki for 'making me do it' and for her baby son, whose name we still don't know. 

4. Homeland sweeps the board

Adele wasn't the only new Mum out on the town at last nights Golden Globes. Claire Danes, who plays the brilliant Carrie Mathison in CIA drama Homeland, joined her castmates to celebrate the shows success. As well as a new baby, she now has a brand new shiny statue to add to her mantelpiece as she scooped the award for Best Actress (TV - drama) with co-star Damian Lewis awarded Best Actor and the show itself winning Best TV Drama. 

5. A Former President Took To The Stage

Yes, an actual former President of the United States, Mr Bill Clinton himself took to the stage to present the award for Best Motion Picture, Drama. He received a standing ovation from the audience. Lena Dunham looked pretty surprised and Steven Spielberg saluted him. He said some nice things too about Lincoln, a film about the 16th President of the US as he attempts to abolish slavery though it missed out on the award to Ben Affleck's Argo.

6. Jennifer Lawrence was funny, again.

After her hilarious acceptance speech at the People's Choice Awards last week, we knew when Jennifer Lawrence's name was called for Best Actress, Comedy or Musical for Silver Linings Playbook that there would be some LOLs - our favourite? 'I beat Meryl'. She had to follow Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig (which we learned was pronouned with the 'i' and not like the hairpiece!) who introduced and presented the award and confirmed that the nickname we are so fond of, J-Law, is officially a thing now. Thanks. 

7. Girls gets the recognition it deserves

If you haven't heard of Lena Dunham then WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?? The creator, director, writer and leading actress in the HBO comedy Girls was recognised last night for being the voice of her generation. Or as Hannah says in episode one, a voice of her generation. Scooping up Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical and Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical, she gave two heartfelt speeches, and just like Hannah in the show, she overshared just a little bit. Natch.

8. Ben Affleck puts Gigli behind him

Remember that really awful film starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez? Us neither, and the less said about it the better. Well, Ben Affleck has come along way since then as he managed to take home two gongs last night for his film Argo. He won Best Director and Best Motion Picture for the movie beating stiff competition from Zero Dark Thirty, Life of Pi, Django Unchained and Lincoln. In fact, all five directors had their films nominated in the Best Picture category so hats off to Ben for doing the double.

9. Bradley Cooper got asked out

With rumours that Silver Linings Playbook co-stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have recently split up from their respective partners, we're wondering if the new 'Brad and Jen' is just around the corner. But it wasn't J-Law who asked out Brad last night live on television. Nope, that would be the president of the HFPA, Dr. Aida Takla O'Reilly. Fair play. We would.

10. Mister and Miss Golden Globe

As if having famous parents wasn't cool enough, probably the best job at the awards bash last night went to Sam Fox (son of Michael J.) and Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Clint) who were Mister and Miss Golden Globe. Their job? Helping winners onto the stage, handing the awards to the presenters and generally getting to look quite awesome in a room full of awesome people. Job swap anyone?
