Golden Globe Awards 2013: Argo Won Best Picture and Best Director Awards

Golden Globe Awards 2013: Argo Won Best Picture and Best Director Awards
In the prestigious Golden Globe Awards 2013, the hostage-crisis movie Argo thrashed Lincoln to bag best picture as well as best director awards on 13 January 2013. Les Miserables, on the other hand won the awards in best musical or comedy category with the actors Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman winning one trophy each.
The award-winning movie Argo is actually inspired by 1979 crisis US diplomats in Iran. In the category of Best Drama, other nominees were Django Unchained, Zero Dark Thirty as well as Life of Pi.
Lincoln which was leading the race with a total of seven nominations took away just the trophy of best actor which was awarded to Daniel Day-Lewis for his role as the 16 President of US. However, the film might have better opportunities at Oscars where it is running first with 12 nominations.
The Golden Globe Awards 2013 also did not stand with Life of Pi and the film only took home a single award, the best original score by Mychael Danna.

About the Golden Globe Awards
The Hollywood stars came on 13 January 2013 to Beverly Hills, Calif for taking the much-popular Golden Globe trophies at 70th annual Golden Globe Awards. These awards were presented by Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
The first Golden Globes were held at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and were hosted by Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association. From there, the idea of recognizing the excellence in the concept of moviemaking came up by the members of Foreign Correspondents Association. The first awards of the organisation took place in early 1944 and the informal ceremony took place at 20th Century Fox.
Jennifer Jones bagged the Best Actress award for The Song of Bernadette, which was also the best film. Paul Lukas won the Best Actor award for Watch on the Rhine.
