Golden Globes 2013: The beard wins for top men's accessory

One of the most noticeable men's trends at Sunday night's 2013 Golden Globes was the abundance of facial hair, from presenter Jeremy Renner's barely there smudge of a 'stache to Bill Murray's full-walrus mustache with connected sideburns.

Some of the other bearded and mustachioed men in attendance were producers Grant Heslov and Judd Apatow, actors Jason Statham and Will Ferrell and, if you include Bradley Cooper's scruffy visage, all five nominees for lead actor in a comedy or musical film, with facial fuzz gracing the grizzled chins of Ewan McGregor, Jack Black, Bill Murray and winner Hugh Jackman.

Perhaps the night's most memorable facial-hair face-off came when Ben Affleck's beard beat Steven Spielberg's beard in the director category.

It's worth noting that two of 2012's most high-profile big-screen beards were MIA. Both Christoph Walz (winner in the supporting actor in a drama category for "Django Unchained") and Daniel Day-Lewis (lead actor in a drama for "Lincoln") accepted their Golden Globes with clean-shaven faces.
