‘Argo’ and ‘Les Misérables’ Win Top Golden Globes

Golden Globes

Hollywood insiders had a field day on Sunday as the 70th Golden Globes turned into a feast of smart-mouthed humor aimed at two of their favorite subjects: politics and themselves. The night’s big prize, for best motion picture drama, went to “Argo,” a reality-based thriller about the rescue of American diplomats from Iran during its revolution. But the prizes were just half the action, as the room was kept spinning by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, hosts who pulled no punches.

69th Golden Globes

Moviegoers looking to the Golden Globe Awards as Oscar forecasters should consider their bets hedged. “The Artist” was Sunday night’s big winner, taking home three prizes, including one for best comedy. But it was a photo finish with “The Descendants,” which won two awards, including best drama.
