'Argo' and 'Les Mis' Kick Ass at the Golden Globes

Ben Affleck in "Argo" Warner Bros.

The 70th annual Golden Globe Awards were presented live Sunday evening and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had a message for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences: "Argo" f*ck yourself!

Yes, not only did "Argo" take home the award for Best Motion Picture Drama, but "Argo's" Ben Affleck also won Best Director after being shockingly left off the list of Oscar nominees for Best Director just last week.

"Les Miserables" was likewise a big winner on the evening, though without quite as much drama — literally, as the Tom Hooper film won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical. Star Hugh Jackman also won Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical, while co-star Anne Hathaway won Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture.

In the acting categories, Jessica Chastain has won Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for her role in "Zero Dark Thirty," with Daniel Day-Lewis winning Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his role in "Lincoln." And Jennifer Lawrence earned the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical for "Silver Linings Playbook," beating out luminaries such as Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Meryl Streep.

"I beat Meryl!" Lawrence crowed jokingly from the stage in a typically freewheeling acceptance speech.

Meanwhile, Christoph Waltz took home Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in "Django Unchained," beating out co-star Leonardo DiCaprio among others. Waltz won the same award three years ago for his last collaboration with director Quentin Tarantino, "Inglorious Basterds."

Tarantino himself repeated as the winner of Best Screenplay for a Motion Picture award for his script for "Django Unchained;" he previously won the same award in 1995 for "Pulp Fiction."

International pop star Adele also earned a Golden Globe for Best Original Song from a Motion Picture for "Skyfall's" eponymous theme song, while "Amour" won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film and Pixar's "Brave" won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film.

One of the unexpected highlights of the evening came during the usually boring introductions of the Best Picture nominees, as former President Bill Clinton was on hand to present the clip from "Lincoln." Pretty much the ultimate proof that literally everyone wants to work with Steven Spielberg.

New hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kicked off the evening in high style, with a number of gags that had the crowd in stitches (not literally). Despite leading off by promising they would not be as vicious as former host Ricky Gervais, the duo immediately cracked a joke about "Zero Dark Thirty" director Kathryn Bigelow being an expert on torture thanks to her previous marriage to James Cameron.
