This year’s hosts of the Golden Globes, the awards gala believed to be the most accurate indicator of who stands better chances of winning an Academy Award, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, promised a night to remember. It was all that – and so much more.

The gala wrapped up shortly ago and, as they say, the people at home watching weren’t the only winners.

The best of the best in television, film and music in film were honored for their work in the past year, which brought some surprises, some “I knew it!” moments and extraordinarily awesome and funny speeches.

In film, “Lincoln,” “Les Miserables,” “Django Unchained” and “Zero Dark Thirty” were the big winners, just as they’d been at the other industry awards.

However, the biggest award, Best Motion Picture – Drama, went to Ben Affleck for his latest project, the political thriller “Argo,” considered one of the most upsetting snubs at the Oscars 2013. Affleck also won Best Director.

Adele took home the Golden Globe for Best Original Soundtrack for her “Skyfall” theme song, also titled “Skyfall.”

As her fans must already know, this was the first time she made a public appearance since announcing that she was pregnant with her first child – according to tabloid reports, she brought her son along with her to Los Angeles.

In television, HBO’s “Girls” collected a few awards, but winners also included regulars “Homeland,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “Downton Abbey.”

“Game Change” didn’t go home empty-handed either.
