"Lincoln" was upset at the Golden Globe Awards by "Argo" and "Django Unchained." Steven Spielberg's historical drama, about President Lincoln passing the 13th Amendment to end slavery, was predicted to win five awards out of its field-leading seven nominations, but it only won one: Best Drama Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis. (See complete list of winners here and read report on TV awards here.)

"Argo" won Best Drama Picture and Best Director for Ben Affleck, who also recently won the Critics' Choice Award despite his recent Oscar snub. (Read Tom O'Neil's analysis of what this means for the Oscars here.)

Meanwhile, "Django Unchained" won a pair of surprise honors: Christoph Waltz as Best Supporting Actor and Quentin Tarantino for Best Screenplay. Both are nominated in those respective categories at the Oscars.

But "Les Miserables" led all films with three wins out of its four nominations: Comedy/Musical Picture, Comedy/Musical Actor (Hugh Jackman), and Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway). As expected, it lost its Original Song bid to Adele's theme from "Skyfall."

"Silver Linings Playbook" won one of its four bids: Comedy/Musical Actress for Jennifer Lawrence. Jessica Chastain won Drama Actress for "Zero Dark Thirty."

"Life of Pi," which also contended for Drama Picture and Director, won the award for Best Score (Mychael Danna).

"Amour" won Foreign Language Film, while "Brave" earned Animated Feature honors.
