Golden Globes: Some Surprise Winners and Losers at Last Night's Awards

Golden Globes: Some Surprise Winners and Losers at Last Night's Awards

Jodie Foster's coming out/retirement speech wasn't the only surprise during last night's Golden Globes awards. While Daniel Day-Lewis won the best actor award for drama for Lincoln (expected), the film—which was written by gay writer Tony Kushner—was largely shut out of the awards, although it is seen as a favorite for Academy Awards (and is leading the pack with nominations). 

Co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler received high marks for their gag-filled sets. After the duo donned a series of costumes as faux nominees and surprise presenter President Bill Clinton introduced Lincoln, receiving a standing ovation, Poehler gushed: "Wow, what a special guest. That was Hillary Clinton's husband."
