The Golden Globes went down last night . . . and the movies "Argo" and "Les Misérables" were the big winners, along with the cable shows "Homeland" and "Girls". (--"Homeland" airs on Showtime. "Girls" is on HBO.)
In the movie categories, "Argo" won Best Drama, and BEN AFFLECK won Best Director . . . also for "Argo". (--This should make Ben feel a little better about being snubbed by the Oscars when they announced their nominees last week.)
"Les Misérables" won Best Musical or Comedy, and two of its stars also won . . . HUGH JACKMAN won Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, and ANNE HATHAWAY won Best Supporting Actress.
By the way, ADELE'S "Skyfall" theme won Best Original Song, and she gave arguably the most amusing acceptance speech of the night. (--You can find video, here. Note: TAYLOR SWIFT doesn't look too amused 22 seconds in. She was also nominated in the category.)
In the TV categories, it was all about cable . . . the broadcast networks didn't win anything. "Homeland" won Best Drama Series, and its stars CLAIRE DANES and DAMIAN LEWIS won Best Actress and Actor in a Drama.
"Girls" won Best Comedy Series . . . and LENA DUNHAM won Best Actress in a Comedy for her work on the show. HBO's"Game Change" won three Golden Globes, including Best Miniseries or TV Movie.
