The 70th Annual Golden Globes showcased the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s picks for top performances in film and telelvision. We have to admit, the HFPA’s choices surprised us. Keep reading to find out who seemed to have favor with the HFPA for the 2013 Golden Globes.
Homeland is a television series drama and it beat out major players in almost all of the categories it was nominated. Homeland took home three of the four Golden Globes it was nominated for in 2013. It took home the Golden Globe for Best Television Drama and Damien Lewis won Best Actor in a Television Drama for his role. Claire Danes won her third Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Drama — and beat out our favorite Michelle Dockery from Downton Abbey.
Game Change won for Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Julianne Moore won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her role as Sarah Palin and Ed Harris won Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
Wow, the HFPA loves Lena Dunham and her HBO Y-generation hit Girls. Lena Dunham was not expecting to win in the two categories her show was nominated for: Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy and Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy. Girls took home both Golden Globes for 2013 after only its first season and beat out some sizable competition.
