Congratulations to Ben Affleck and ‘Argo’ for directing and best drama awards at the Golden Globes last night!
No major surprises otherwise, with ‘Django Unchained’ receiving the prize for screenplay, Daniel Day-Lewis for his performance in ‘Lincoln’, and Jessica Chastain for hers in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’. I haven’t seen either yet, but both are majorly hyped, so let’s hope they were well-deserved. ‘Amour’ expectedly won best foreign movie award, the epic ‘Les Misérables’ won several awards almost by default, even if the movie’s received lukewarm reviews. Adele’s ‘Skyfall’ won best theme song (yay!), and ‘Life of Pi’ won for best score.
I was also happy to see ‘Homeland’ winning best series, actor and actress awards in a drama series (again), even though I would have loved to see some credit for Benedict Cumberbatch and ‘Sherlock’. I will also have to look into ‘Girls’, which won best series and actress in a comedy series.
