Les Miserables and TV dramas Homeland and Game Change rocked at the 70th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles on 13 January after landing three top prizes apiece.

Les Mis beat out stiff competition to be crowned the Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical, while the film's stars Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman emerged victorious in the acting categories.

It was also a top night for Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln), Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), and Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), who all won acting awards in the drama categories. Ben Affleck picked up the Best Director for Argo, which also won the Best Motion Picture Drama honour.

Ben sweetly dedicated the win to his wife, Jennifer Garner, saying: "I want to thank my wife who is the reason why I'm standing here. I adore you. I love you so much. Thanks for sitting through this. You are my everything. Thank you."

In the end, Lincoln won just one award and Daniel Day-Lewis was all for sharing it with the team, "If I had this on a timeshare basis with my wonderful gifted colleagues, I might just hope to keep it for one day of the year, and I'd be happy with that," he joked.

Jessica was a lot more emotional, saying, "I've auditioned and fought and been on the sidelines for years. To be here now, it's a beautiful moment."

The show itself was high on cheeky stars as always; and things kicked off with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who took on everyone from Anne Hathaway to Bill Clinton (he made a surprise appearance to introduce Lincoln!) to Taylor Swift (suggesting that she make a play for Michael J Fox's young son next!).

Amy also had her own angle on the controversy surrounding the torture scenes in director Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty, about America's decade-long manhunt for Osama bin Laden. "Kathryn Bigelow's nominated tonight. I haven't really been following the controversy over Zero Dark Thirty, but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron."

Tina followed up the joke by referencing Anne Hathaway's much-maligned co-hosting gig with James Franco at the 2011 Oscars. She said, "Anne Hathaway, you gave a stunning performance in Les Miserables. I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned like that since you were onstage with James Franco at the Oscars."

Then there was the moment that T'Town's current It girl Jennifer Lawrence yelled "I beat Meryl!" after winning Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. Jen had just beaten fellow nominee and all-round acting goddess Meryl Streep, who'd been up for Hope Springs. The Silver Linings Playbook star didn't stop there, thanking producer Harvey Weinstein with the words, "Harvey, thank you for killing whomever you had to kill to get me up here today."

We also saw new mum Adele back on stage after a long time (we've missed her!); Sacha Baron Cohen pretending to be drunk and dissing his Les Mis co-stars Russell Crowe and Hugh 'Jackson'; and Jennifer Lopez cheering loud and clear for ex Ben Affleck during his big win. Love!
