Golden Globes 2013: Jennifer Lawrence Wins Best Actress - Comedy for 'Silver Linings Playbook'
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.
"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.
In addition to Lawrence, "Homeland" and star Damian Lewis won top TV awards. The Showtime series won Best TV Drama and Lewis earned Best TV Actor- Drama for his performance as a terrorist mole.
"The best journeys are always shared...I would like to share this with the best cast and crew in television," Lewis said.
The event then took a political turn, 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.
It would not be the only moment to dish about the democratic process. Former President Bill Clinton strolled out at one point to introduce Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," citing it as a guide for future presidents. A hush fell over the crowd as he extolled the historical epic's virtues -- one that was not lifted until host Amy Poehler punctured the solemnity by noting that he was "Hillary Clinton's husband."
Kevin Costner earned honors in the Best Actor in a TV Movie or Mini-Series for his role in the smash hit "Hatfields & McCoys." In a speech that looked back at his own career in movies and TV, he thanked the awards show for allowing people to "...illuminate movies they might not have seen and now they will."
Also getting on the board early was Christoph Waltz, who won Best Supporting Actor at the 70th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday 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."
Also honored in the initial awards was Maggie Smith, who captured Best Supporting Actress in a TV Movie or Mini-Series for her work as a haughty aristocrat on PBS' "Downton Abbey." Smith was not at the ceremony.
Hosts Poehler and Tina Fey kicked off the show by poking fun at its decision to honor the best of both film and television simultaneously.
