Some Surprises at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Some Surprises at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards


Jodie's out, Adele is in, and everyone loves Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.


Jodie Foster's coming out/retirement speech wasn't the only surprise during Sunday's Golden Globes awards. While Daniel Day-Lewis won the best actor award for drama for Lincoln, the film penned by gay writer Tony Kushner was largely shut out of the awards. And that's even after a surprise appearance from former President Bill Clinton, who introduced the film, which was nominated for the motion picture award.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler got high marks for their co-hosting gig. The duo inhabited a series of costumes as faux nominees and after Clinton received a standing ovation Poehler gushed, "Wow, what a special guest. That was Hillary Clinton's husband."
