"Argo," was named best picture (drama) at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, beating out "Zero Dark Thirty," "Lincoln" "Django Unchained" and "Life of Pi."
Unlike the Academy Awards, which names just one best picture, the Golden Globes names two — one in the drama category and one in the comedy-or-musical category.
"Les Misérables" was named best picture (comedy or musical), beating out "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Moonrise Kingdom," "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen."
The Golden Globes are chosen by fewer than 90 self-described L.A.-based entertainment journalists who often favor films with an international flair and big-name stars. Though their tastes do not align perfectly with Oscar voters', the HFPA can give a boost to late-charging awards contenders.
