Golden Globes 2013 — A Good Night for Grownups

Jodie Foster and Daniel Day-Lewis won big and looked great. Plus: Sally Field, George Clooney, Julianne Moore (and more)

The Hosts

It was girls night at the Golden Globes. Tina Fey, 42, and Amy Poehler, 41, were the first-ever female hosting duo and HBO’s Girls won best TV comedy. Creator/star Lena Dunham, 26, thanked her inspiring fellow nominees (including the hosts) for getting her through middle school. Ouch.

The Night's Honoree

Jodie Foster, recipient of the Golden Globe's lifetime achievement Cecil B. DeMille Award, came out, proudly shouted about being 50 (she began acting at age 3), gushed about her two sons and paid special tribute to “my amazing mother, Evelyn.”

Daniel Day-Lewis

Hollywood's latest Lincoln — Daniel Day-Lewis, 55, winner for best actor in a movie drama — wasn’t the only presidential figure on the stage at the Globes. Bill Clinton introduced Lincoln, a best picture nominee, which was also screened at the White House for Barack Obama.

'Zero Dark Thirty' Wins One

Director Kathryn Bigelow, 61, nominated for Zero Dark Thirty, hardly looks more than 30, or for that matter, much older than the film’s nominated screenwriter, journalist Mark Boal, 40. The film's star, Jessica Chastain, 35, took home a Globe for best actress in a drama.

Quentin Tarantino

Holding his screenwriting Globe for Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino, who turns 50 in March, adds another award to his trophy case, which already includes a Golden Globe (Inglourious Basterds) and an Oscar (Pulp Fiction), among others.

Helen Mirren

A best actress nominee for Hitchcock, Helen Mirren, 67, rocked a form-fitting Badgley-Mischka. Accompanied on the red carpet by her director husband Taylor Hackford, 68 (in dark shades), the leading lady admitted to worrying that "Tina [Fey] will poke fun at me."

Damian Lewis

Homeland's Damian Lewis, 41, kisses his prize for best actor in a TV drama, earned by playing a U.S. Marine freed after years of captivity in Afghanistan. His fellow Brit, Dame Maggie Smith, 78, won for best supporting actress in a TV series (Downton Abbey) but did not attend the festivities.

Denzel Washington

Father of four and a best actor nominee for the film Flight, Denzel Washington, 58, was flying high with his youngest daughter, Olivia, 21, on his arm. She tattled, "He's the biggest nerd you'll ever meet."

Glenn Close

Best actress nominee Glenn Close, 65, didn’t win anything for Damages. The movie-turned-TV-star did, however, prove ready for her closeup when hosts Fey and Poehler, at the podium with drinks in hand to console their own losses, called out a drunken (or just acting drunk) Close.

Jon Hamm

If Don Draper were at the 2013 Golden Globes, he’d be more than 85 years old. The Mad Men ad man was present in spirit through nominee and past winner Jon Hamm, 41, accompanied by his off-screen love, actress Jennifer Westfeldt, 42.

Kevin Costner

Kevin Costner, 57, with wife Christine Baumgartner, 38, said he was moved by the smart writing of the Hatfields & McCoys, for which he won best actor in a miniseries. Next up: playing Superman's dad in the movie Man of Steel.

Jessica Lange

Jessica Lange, 63, star of the FX drama American Horror Story: Asylum, was nominated for best actress in a miniseries. She went home empty-handed this year but won for the same role in 2012.

The Cast of 'Les Miserables'

There were no 50+ stars in Les Mis, but Russell Crowe, 48, and Hugh Jackman, 44 (best actor in a musical) did have to age beyond their years. Anne Hathaway won for best supporting actress. Helena Bonham Carter, Sasha Baron Cohen, Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne joined the fun.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, hilarious as the U.S. vice president in Veep, looked fabulous, but she lost — on her 52nd birthday no less — to “it girl” Lena Dunham (of HBO's Girls), a talented competitor exactly half her age.

A Trio From 'Argo'

Ben Affleck, 40, the winning director of best picture Argo, with two of the film’s producers, Grant Heslov, 47, and George Clooney, 51, whom he forgot to thank during his acceptance speech. (Affleck had his wife, Jennifer Garner, rectify the mistake when she took the stage as a presenter.)

Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore, 52, admitted to “tremendous trepidation” about playing Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in HBO's adaptation of Game Change, the best seller about the 2008 presidential race. Having conquered her fear, she won best actress in a TV movie.

Richard Gere

Nominated for playing a hedge-fund billionaire in Arbitrage, Richard Gere, 63, walked the red carpet with wife Carey Lowell, 51 (wearing red Valentino). Gere was unreachable in India when the nominations were announced. He described himself as being “very zen” about the Globes.

Christoph Waltz

Versatile, multilingual German-Austrian actor Christoph Waltz, 56, earned a big payoff (best supporting actor in a movie comedy) as bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz in Django Unchained.

Sally Field

She left the Globes without a win, but Sally Field's performance as Mary Todd Lincoln — opposite Globe winner Daniel Day-Lewis — may yet provide the 66-year-old star with her third Academy Award.
