Golden Globe Awards

‘Argo,’ ‘Les Miz’ big winners at the Golden Globes

‘Homeland,’ ‘Girls’ also score at awards

Movie stars and what Amy Poehler called the “rat-faced people of television” crammed together last night for the annual Golden Globes mash up. Throw together a bunch of borrowed diamonds, gallons of champagne, and about 200 categories and you’ve got a party.

The movie winners were a varied bunch, and may presage a spread-the-wealth outcome in next month’s Oscars. Best of all: “Argo” took two major awards, for best drama and for Ben Affleck as best director. I’m guessing Affleck, who was snubbed in the director category by the Oscars, felt a touch of vindication.
