The star-studded 70th Golden Globe Awards, which was held in Los Angeles mere hours ago, saw big names in the nominees list and then even bigger winners such as Argo and Les Misérables (which won “Best Drama” and “Best Comedy/Musical” respectively).
Our surprise kicked into full gear when Ben Affleck took home the “Best Director” globe for Argo! He beat out other award-winning directors who were also nominated for the category namely Steven Spielberg (for “Lincoln”), Quentin Tarantino (for “Django Unchained”), and Ang Lee (for “Life of Pi”).
Guess it’s safe to say that the win signified a true career-defining moment for Ben.
Other winners include Jennifer Lawrence (for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook”), Adele (for her original song, “Skyfall”), Claire Dance (for her role in “Homeland”), and Maggie Smith (for her role in “Downton Abbey). The list of Golden Globes winners as are follows:
