2013 Golden Globe Winners

Here are the winners of the 2012 Golden Globes! I have to say, this year's Globes were a damn good time. Tina Fey and Amy Poehlar should just host everything. Seriously, bring them back next year. Or allow Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell to host, because they were the funniest presenters by a long shot. As always, my thoughts will be in green. As far as my picks - I was 18/25. Not bad.

Best Motion Picture — Drama
WINNER: Argo
Django Unchained
Life of Pi
Lincoln
Zero Dark Thirty

Argo won big tonight, but the Globes are notorious for getting Best Drama and Best Picture wrong. Still, it's a confusing season. I'm not sure if this will curse Argo, or give it the momentum it needs.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama
WINNER: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln
Richard Gere, Arbitrage
John Hawkes, The Sessions
Joaquin Phoenix, The Master
Denzel Washington, Flight

Even Daniel Day-Lewis knew he was going to win this.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama
WINNER: Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty
Marion Cotillard, Rust & Bone
Helen Mirren, Hitchcock
Naomi Watts, The Impossible
Rachel Weisz, The Deep Blue Sea



Best Motion Picture — Comedy Or Musical
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
WINNER: Les Misérables
Moonrise Kingdom
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Silver Linings Playbook

Like I was saying on Twitter, I don't think Les Mis winning this hurts Silver Lining Playbook's Oscar chances at all. The Globes love musicals, and while Les Mis is a powerhouse, SLP was better reviewed overall. The SAGs are going to be an important win for them. (I felt like a sports commentator or something there. Like I know what the hell I'm talking about.)

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Comedy Or Musical
Emily Blunt, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Judi Dench, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
WINNER: Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook
Maggie Smith, Quartet
Meryl Streep, Hope Springs

Jennifer's speech was hilarious. At least she was blunt about the things Harvey Weinstein has to do to get people up there.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Comedy Or Musical
Jack Black, Bernie
Bradley Cooper, Silver Linings Playbook
WINNER: Hugh Jackman, Les Misérables
Bill Murray, Hyde Park on Hudson
Ewan McGregor, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

I expected Hugh to win over Bradley. Really, he deserved it. He CARRIED Les Mis. Fantastic performance. I still don't think he has a chance against Daniel Day-Lewis, but I wish he did.

Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Amy Adams, The Master
Sally Field, Lincoln
WINNER: Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables
Helen Hunt, The Sessions
Nicole Kidman, The Paperboy



Best Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Alan Arkin, Argo
Leonardo DiCaprio, Django Unchained
Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Master
Tommy Lee Jones, Lincoln

WINNER: Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained
I'm happy for Christoph, even if I wanted Leo to win. Tommy Lee Jones looked so pissed all night.

Best Director — Motion Picture
WINNER: Ben Affleck, Argo
Kathryn Bigelow, Zero Dark Thirty
Ang Lee, Life of Pi
Steven Spielberg, Lincoln
Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained

Oscars, you fucked up. You fucked up HARD.

Best Screenplay — Motion Picture
Argo, Chris Terrio
WINNER: Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino
Lincoln, Tony Kushner
Silver Linings Playbook, David O. Russell
Zero Dark Thirty, Mark Boal

This was a nice surprise. Quentin's love for his cast really showed.

Best Original Score — Motion Picture
Anna Karenina, Dario Marianelli
Argo, Alexandre Desplat
Cloud Atlas, Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimet & Reinhold Heil
WINNER: Life of Pi, Michael Danna
Lincoln, John Williams



Best Original Song — Motion Picture
“For You ” (music and lyrics by Keith Urban), Act of Valor
“Not Running Anymore” (music and lyrics by Jon Bon Jovi), Stand Up Guys
“Safe & Sound” (music and lyrics by Taylor Swift, John Paul White, Joy Williams and T Bone Burnett), The Hunger Games
WINNER: “Skyfall” (music and lyrics by Adele and Paul Epworth), Skyfall“Suddenly” (music by Claude-Michel Schonberg and lyrics by Schonberg and Alain Boublil), Les Misérables
How funny was Taylor Swift's bitchy face when Adele won this? It was hilarious. I swear Swift has gone from America's sweetheart to annoying, clingy ex girlfriend this year. No one can take down Adele. No one.

WINNER: Brave
Frankenweenie
Hotel Transylvania
Rise of the Guardians
Wreck-It Ralph



Best Foreign Language Film
WINNER: Amour
The Intouchables
Kon-Tiki

Rust & Bone



Best Television Series — Drama
Boardwalk Empire
Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
WINNER: Homeland
The Newsroom

Guess what I'm going to write here: Breaking Bad is better. Yep, there it is. There's no trying to convince me otherwise.

WINNER: Girls
Modern Family
Smash



Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series – Drama
Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom
Jon Hamm, Mad Men

I would've given this award to all of the other nominees before Lewis. He's just so smug.

Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series – Drama
Connie Britton, Nashville
Glenn Close, Damages
WINNER: Claire Danes, Homeland
Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife

I hate her acceptance speeches. I can't believe I'm going to have to listen to another when she wins the SAG.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
WINNER: Kevin Costner, Hatfields and McCoys
Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock
Woody Harrelson, Game Change

I really wanted Benny Batch to win this. (Yes, I've gotten to the point where I can refer to him as that)

Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series — Comedy Or Musical
Zooey Deschanel, New Girl
WINNER: Lena Dunham, Girls
Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
Amy Poehler, Parks And Recreation

Ok, so here's the thing. I don't like Girls. I don't think it's funny, and I think the characters are pretty horrible people, but Lena Dunham's speech was so sweet. I can't help but be happy for a woman in her mid 20's (like myself) for being up there.

Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series — Comedy Or Musical
Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
WINNER: Don Cheadle, House of Lies
Louis C.K., Louis

Seriously, what the fuck was up with her speech?

  3. i couldn't get into Girls either, and i tried one whole episode lol. i didn't love that win. but i loved the Homeland love, no matter what their speeches were! I still think Joaquin over DDL, but we so agree with each other on High Jackman.

  4. Still love that Cameron joke. :) I didn't have a problem with any of the movie wins, except DDL's wins are becoming quite boring.

  5. Glad to see Affleck won, yeah the Academy is sooo off this year for snubbing both him AND Bigelow! I think it's between Argo and Zero Dark Thirty for me for Best Picture... I'm torn. Ahah, I'm sure Bigelow was so thrilled about Cameron's remark, that was brilliant!

    Yay for Christoph, even though I haven't seen Django I'm sure he was astounding. I agree with Josh that DDL's win is way too expected.
