ALL YOU NEED ARE GLOBES

Argo, Daniel Day-Lewis, Jessica Chastain, Ben Affleck, Les Miz, Adele Big Winners
With last night’s Golden Globes and last week’s Oscar nominations, the awards season is officially underway, with no clear winner in sight.

On last night’s nationally televised Hollywood Foreign Press bash, co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler got off the evening’s best zinger about Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow, with the latter observing, “When it comes to torture, I trust a lady who spent three years married to James Cameron.”

Otherwise, no one movie managed to seize the momentum for Oscar’s big night on Sunday, Feb.24, although Argo made its case with a convincing win for Best Drama and a victory for director Ben Affleck, who took home Best Director honors after being snubbed for an Academy Award nomination in the category. Les Miserables solidified its dark-horse status by taking home the prize for Best Musical or Comedy over Silver Linings Playbook.

Oscar favorites Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) took Best Acting honors in Drama, while Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables) and Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) earned awards for Musical or Comedy. Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) and Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) earned Supporting nods.

An ebullient Adele brought a jolt to the ceremonies with her typically refreshing response to winning Best Original Song for “Skyfall” in the James Bond movie of the same name, while Mychael Danna’s Life of Pi won for Original Score.

Lena Dunham’s HBO series Girls capped its second season premiere last night by taking home a pair of Globes, one for Best Comedy and the other for Dunham as Best Actress in a Comedy. Showtime’s Homeland nabbed three, one for Best Drama, the other two for Best Actor Damian Lewis and Best Actress Claire Danes. Don Cheadle took home Best Actor in a comedy or musical for the returning Showtime series, House of Lies. HBO’s Game Change, about the unlikely political rise of Sarah Palin, earned honors as Best Miniseries and also awards for Julianne Moore as Best Actress and Ed Harris (playing John McCain) as Best Supporting Actor.  Kevin Costner took home Best Actor in a Miniseries for his role in Hatfields & McCoys.

Other winners included Quentin Tarantino (Best Screenplay), Amour (Best Foreign Film), Downton Abbey’s Maggie Smith (Best Supporting Actress in a Miniseries) and Brave (Best Animated Feature).

Perhaps the most touching moment of the night was Jodie Foster’s acceptance of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award from Robert Downey Jr., in which she pretty much came out of the closet and seemed to indicate her retirement from acting, bringing tears to many eyes in the audience. The other highlight was former President Bill Clinton's introduction of a clip from the nominated Oscar front-runner Lincoln, which got shut out except for Day-Lewis' win.
