第68届金球奖获奖结果已在美国洛杉矶揭晓。金球奖的举行预示着一年一度的电影与电视奖项季节已经到来。很多人认为金球奖的获奖影片很可能会成为本年度奥斯卡的热门侯选。

Argo pulled off a surprise win. Directed by Ben Affleck, the film revolves around the Iran hostage crisis in 1979. It beat Steven Speilberg's Lincoln which had been the favourite to take the award for best drama.

Speaking at the ceremony, former president Bill Clinton said Lincoln was an extraordinary film. Its leading man Daniel Day-Lewis was named best actor:

Actor, Daniel Day-Lewis:

Are you sure there's room for another ex-president on this stage? Well, if you thought that was showing off, Her Majesty the Queen of England is about to parachute in in a couple of minutes to make a last minute pitch for Skyfall.

In the category for best musical, Les Miserables won the top award. There were also accolades for its stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway. In other categories, the award for best song went to Adele for her James Bond theme, Skyfall. The singer was a little overwhelmed by her success:

Singer-songwriter, Adele:

Honestly I've come out for a night out with my friend Ida, we're new mums. We've literally come for a night out, I was not expecting this. Thank you so much. It's so good. It's very strange to be here. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your world for a night. It's amazing.

In the category for best foreign language film, the Austrian drama Amour was the winner. And in the television section, Downton Abbey lost out to Homeland for the award for best drama.
