Washington, Jan 16 (ANI): Christopher Plummer, Michelle Williams, Octavia Spencer and Showtime's 'Homeland' won the top honours at the 69th annual Golden Globe awards.
Plummer won the supporting-acting Globes as an elderly widower who comes out as gay in the father-son drama 'Beginners' and Spencer as a brassy housekeeper joining other black maids to share stories about life with their white employers in the 1960s Deep South tale 'The Help'.
"With regard to domestics in this country, now and then, I think Dr. King said it best: 'All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance.' And I thank you for recognizing that with our film," Fox News quoted Spencer as saying.
Showtime's new runaway hit 'Homeland' won the award for the best television drama. Based on an Israeli drama and starring Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, it beat out 'Game of Thrones', 'American Horror Story' and 'Boardwalk Empire'.
Woody Allen won the screenplay honour for his romantic fantasy 'Midnight in Paris', the filmmaker's biggest hit in decades.
Steven Spielberg's action tale 'The Adventures of Tintin' won the prize fot the best animated film.
The Iranian drama 'A Separation' was chosen as the best foreign-language film. Writer-director Asghar Farhadi used a divorcing couple's domestic troubles with a young child and an aging parent as the means to examine gender, religious and class distinctions in contemporary Iran.
Ricky Gervais, who has ruffled feathers at past shows with sharp wisecracks aimed at Hollywood's elite and the Globes show itself, returned as the host for the third-straight year.
Madonna, Julie Frost and Jimmy Harry won the Globe for best song for 'Masterpiece' from the King Edward-Wallis Simpson drama 'W.E.', which was also directed by Madonna.
Among television winners were Kate Winslet as best actress in a miniseries or movie in 'Mildred Pierce', Idris Elba as best actor in a miniseries or movie in 'Luther', Laura Dern as comedy or musical actress in 'Enlightened', Kelsey Grammer as dramatic actor in 'Boss', 'Homeland' for drama series and 'Downton Abbey' for miniseries or movie.
