Did you get to see any of this year's big winners? Many of us seem to scramble after the fact to see if the winners were actually good flicks or shows.
"Argo" slowed the momentum of awards front-runners like "Lincoln" and "Life of Pi" at the 70th Golden Globes on Sunday, earning the Best Picture - Drama award for its dramatization of a true-life mission to rescue captured diplomats in Iran.
Meanwhile, "Les Miserables" stormed the barricades at the 70th Golden Globes on Sunday, winning the Best Musical or Comedy award over the likes of "Silver Lingings Playobook" and "Moonrise Kingdom."
Unlike the Academy Awards, the Globes honors the best of television as well. On that front, Showtime's spy thriller "Homeland" won the statue for Best TV Series - Drama, while HBO's coming-of-age chronicle "Girls" earned the prize for Best TV Series - Comedy.
But the biggest moment of the show was not in any of the competitive categories. It happened as Jodie Foster accepted her Cecil B. DeMille Award for career achievement and came out as a lesbian. Social media sites erupted as the star of "Silence of the Lambs" defended her long-time decision not to comment publicly on her sexuality, while thanking her former partner, Cydney Bernard.
"I'm just going to put it out there, loud and proud ... I am, uh, single," she said, to laughter.
The win for "Argo" win was not the only upset of the evening. Ben Affleck, who was snubbed by Oscar voters on Thursday, made up for it at Sunday's Golden Globes, by winning Best Director for his role in guiding the thriller to the big screen.
To capture the honor, Affleck bested Steven Spielberg("Lincoln") and Ang Lee ("Life of Pi"), two of the directors who did make the Academy Awards shortlist.
It followed what has been a rough few days for "Lincoln," which also saw Affleck pick up top prizes at the Critics Choice Awards, as sympathy has built in the industry for actor-director Affleck's snub. Unlike in prior years, the Globes show is being held after Oscar nominations have been announced. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences opted to move up the unveiling of Oscar nominees this year.
"Lincoln" wasn't shut out entirely. Winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for his role as the 16th president, Daniel Day-Lewis called Spielberg "a humble master with a quicksilver imagination" and thanked him for giving him "an experience I will treasure until the end of my life."
