Golden Globes 2013: 'Argo' Wins Best Drama, 'Les Miserables' Wins Best Musical
Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress in a Comedy at the for her role as a grieving widow in "Silver Linings Playbook" at the 70th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
To earn the honor, the 22-year old actress beat out veteran actresses such as Meryl Streep in "Hope Springs" and Judi Dench in "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel."
"I am so honored to be in a film like this...Harvey thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here today," Lawrence said, thanking the film's producer, Harvey Weinstein.
"Homeland" and stars Damian Lewis and Claire Danes won top TV awards. The Showtime series won Best TV Drama. Lewis earned Best TV Actor- Drama for his performance as a terrorist mole and Danes earned Best TV Actress - Drama for her portrayal of a bipolar C.I.A. agent.
"The best journeys are always shared...I would like to share this with the best cast and crew in television," Lewis said.
"I am very proud to be working in this medium at this moment for this company," Danes said.
Showtime had a very strong evening, also picking up a Best TV Actor in a Comedy for Don Cheadle's performance as a cut-throat management consultant in the network's "House of Lies."
Anne Hathaway captured the Best Supporting Actress prize for playing a desperate woman forced into prostitution in "Les Miserables."
"Thank you for this lovely blunt object that I will forever use as a weapon against self-doubt," Hathaway said.
The actress took the opportunity to thank "Lincoln" star Sally Field, who she beat for the honor, by noting that the two-time Oscar-winner had taught others to shun typecasting in a long career that extended from "Gidget" to "Norma Rae."
Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of a German bounty hunter in "Django Unchained."
Waltz, who captured the award over a strong field of candidates like Alan Arkin in "Argo" and Tommy Lee Jones in "Lincoln," thanked director Quentin Tarantino, calling him his "North Star."
Tarantino would have his own turn under the klieg lights, picking up a Best Screenplay statue for the blood-soaked revenge fable set in the antebellum South.
The champagne-lubricated event took a political turn at one point, albeit one that looked back at more distant ideological clashes as the Globes awarded the Best TV Movie or Mini-Series statue to HBO's "Game Change."
Director Jay Roach said he hoped the film, which looks at Sen. John McCain's decision to tap Sarah Palin as his running mate in the 2008 presidential election, would encourage more people to talk about politics.
Moments later Julianne Moore took the stage to accept an award for Best Actress in a TV Movie or Mini-Series for playing Palin in the film.
"This was one of my favorite jobs ever," Moore said.
Her "Game Change" co-star Ed Harris won Best Supporting Actor in a TV Movie or Mini-Series for his portrayal of McCain.
