Golden Globe Awards 2013

hostagecrisis 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

award, the best original score by Mychael Danna.

Globe Awards. These awards were presented by Hollywood Foreign Press
