The best of the 2013 Golden Globes

Actress Anne Hatheway (C) with Cast and Crew of 'Les Miserables' on stage after winning Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical award for 'Les Miserables' during the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

All of Hollywood was focused on the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards Sunday night as awards season kicked into high gear with the Hollywood Foreign Press’ yearly party at the Beverly Hilton.

While the TV industry enjoyed the limelight as well, the real question is how do the night’s movie winners will impact the ongoing Oscar race. Wins for Daniel Day-Lewis for “Lincoln” (Best Actor in a Drama), Jessica Chastain for “Zero Dark Thirty” (Best Actress in a Drama), Michael Hanake for “Amour” (Best Foreign Language Film) and Anne Hathaway for “Les Miserables” (Best Supporting Actress) certainly help their chances at next month’s Academy Awards.

But Ben Affleck, who won for directing “Argo,” will have to be happy with the Golden Globe, as he was infamously shut out of the Oscar nominations for Best Director. But it’s win for Best Picture — Drama could help it’s win in the tight, nine-way Best Picture race at the Oscars.

Jodie Foster, who received the Cecil B. Demille Award for her long career in Hollywood, used her acceptance speech to stun audiences by addressing her sexuality more openly than she ever has — without actually saying she’s a lesbian — while also taking the press at large for task for continuing to bring up the issue.

“I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago in the stone age,” Foster said. “If you had been a public figure from the time that you were a toddler, you might value privacy. I have given everything up there from the time that I was 3 years old.”

This year’s new co-hosts, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, drew early raves for their work, with a lively opening segment that poked just enough fun at the attendees to make it memorable. 

“Only at the Golden Globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television,” joked Amy Poehler, who is nominated up against Fey for Best Actress in a Television Comedy. “I hope I win,” Poehler told Fey.

The ladies also took a moment to poke fun at Ricky Gervais, who hosted the three previous years and drew increasing criticism each time for jokes that some felt crossed the line into meanness.

“Ricky Gervais could not be here tonight because he’s no longer in show business,” Fey joked. Fey and Poehler also noted they’d been warned the punishment for going to far was being asked back to host the next year.

The Hollywood Foreign Press made sure to spread the love around, celebrating “Les Miserables,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Argo” and “Django Unchained,” with no clear favorite film. Quentin Tarantino took home Best Screenplay while Christoph Waltz earned Best Supporting Actor , beating out co-star Leonardo DiCaprio as well as “Lincoln” scene-stealer Tommy Lee Jones, who is considered the Oscar front-runner in the category.

And Adele received her first Golden Globe for Best Song for “Skyfall.” “Oh my God! Honestly, I’ve come out for a night” as a new mom, Adele said in an endearing acceptance speech. “I was literally not expecting this.”

On the TV side of things, most awards mirrored last September’s Emmy awards. Maggie Smith won for Best Supporting Actress for “Downton Abbey,” and “Homeland” stars Damien Lewis and Clair Danes earned the trophy for Best Actor and Actress in a TV Drama. “Homeland” also won for Best TV Drama. HBO’s “Game Change,” about Sarah Palin’s introduction into the 2008 presidential race, won big, taking home Best TV Movie, Best Supporting Actor for Ed Harris and Best Actress for Julianne Moore’s depiction of Palin.

There were a few shockers, though, like Don Cheadle’s win for Best Actor in a Comedy for “House of Lies,” beating out Jim Parsons, Alec Baldwin, Louis C.K. and previous winner Matt LeBlanc, and first-time nominee Lena Dunham’s win for Best Actress for “Girls.” And the frank freshman HBO series also took home Best Comedy Series on the same night as it’s second season U.S. premiere

 
Best Barbs from Fey and Poehler

“When it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron.”

Poehler wonders why Kathryn Bigelow’s films all seem to involve torture of some sort.

“His first two films were in Boston but he wanted to film somewhere that was friendlier to outsiders so he moved this one to Iran.”

Fey ribs Ben Affleck for “Argo”

“I haven’t seen someone so totally alone & abandoned since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars.” — Fey pays Anne Hathaway a backhanded compliment for her role in “Les Miserables.”

“Meryl Streep is not here tonight. She has the flu. And I hear she’s amazing in it.” — Poehler

“Young Daniel Day Lewis was E.T.” — Fey explores how the “Lincoln” actor is able to totally become each character he portrays
