The 2013 Golden Globes winners have been announced and thankfully it wasn’t too painful of an experience this year. Awards shows in general usually make my skin crawl. They are too long, the presenters are boring and stiff, the jokes are terrible and the host/s make me want to break my television. This year, thankfully, the Golden Globes 2013 winners broadcast was hosted by two of my all-time favorite comedic actresses: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association handed announced the 2013 Golden Globes winners on Sunday night and few of the choices were all that surprising. The Golden Globes are often hit and miss in predicting which films will win Oscars. However, a number of strong favorites to take home golden statues at the 2013 Academy Awards also won prizes Sunday night.

There were also a fair number of awards handed out to Golden Globes 2013 winners who were passed over for 2013 Oscars nominations. While everyone wants to be nominated for an Academy Award, in some ways I feel the 2013 Golden Globes nominations were more spot on than the 2013 Oscars nominations this year. Honestly, there is no shame in winning a Golden Globe rather than an Academy Award when it comes to this field of movies. Sadly, of course, ‘Golden Globes winner’ just doesn’t have the same ring as ‘Oscar winner’ in the film industry.

Considering how awesomely insane some past moments on various Golden Globes live broadcasts have been, I was hoping for more crazy happening on the show tonight. Apparently there just wasn’t enough champagne being passed around to the Golden Globes 2013 nominees this year…

While my favorite enjoyment of an awards show is seeing who will make an ass out of themselves the most on stage, the list of Golden Globe winners is, of course, also important. So here they are, without further delay, the 2013 Golden Globes winners:
