Ben Affleck, the director of "Argo," also won the Golden Globe for Best Director beating Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino Ang Lee and Kathryn Bigelow.

Jessica Chastain won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a drama for "Zero Dark Thirty," and Anne Hathaway won Best Actress in a comedy or musical for "Les Miserables."

The Golden Globe for Best Actor in a drama was awarded to Daniel Day-Lewis for "Lincoln," while the Best Actor in a comedy was given to Hugh Jackman for "Les Miserables."

The most surprising appearance tonight was that of ex-President Bill Clinton who presented Best Picture nominee "Lincoln."

Austrian actor Christoph Waltz and Adele notched early wins at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

Waltz carried off the Golden Globe for best supporting movie actor for his role as a dentist-turned-bounty hunter in Quentin Tarantino's quirky slavery Western "Django Unchained."

"Let me gasp!" said Waltz. "It's extraordinary ... Quentin, my indebtedness and gratitude to you know no words."

Adele, in her first major public appearance since giving birth in October, shared the trophy for performing and co-writing the best original song, "Skyfall," for the James Bond movie of the same name.

TV actresses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the awards bringing laughs to the show.

Pointing out "Zero Dark Thirty" director Kathryn Bigelow at the glitzy dinner, Poehler said she had not been closely following the controversy over the torture scenes depicted in the thriller about the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

But, she added, "when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron," Poehler quipped, to roars from the audience.

Bigelow is the former wife of Cameron, director of blockbusters "Avatar" and "Titanic."

"Meryl Streep is not here. I hear she has the flu, and I'm told she is amazing in it," Poehler joked about the esteemed actress.
