"Homeland," "Girls," "Argo" and "Les Miserables" win multiple Golden Globes at the 70th annual awards ceremony hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey on Sunday night. Highlights included Jodie Foster's emotional speech in which she took the reality TV industry to task, former president Bill Clinton's jokes about unsavory compromises, Oscar snubbed Ben Affleck winning best director for "Argo" and Lena Dunham's "Girls" being honored.
Clinton introduced "Lincoln" and said president Lincoln had to make somewhat unsavory compromises to get his bill to abolish slavery passed. "I wouldn't know anything about that," Clinton joked.
After Lena Dunham gave her acceptance speech for winning best actress in a musical or comedy, Fey and Poehler, who were also nominated in that category arrived on stage with drinks in their hands. "Congratulations, Lena, I'm glad we got you through middle school," Fey said.
Robert Downey Jr. introduced Jodie Foster, 50, winner of the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award, by joking that the award was just as much about the presenter as it was the recipient. Foster said: "Tonight I feel like a prom queen." Then it appeared as if she was going to give a coming out speech but instead she said: "I am single." Then she talked about the value of privacy and "coming out" years ago back in the "stone ages" to her family, friends and "people I've actually met." She took a stab at the reality TV industry. "I am not Honey Boo Boo Child." "My reality show would be so boring." She said she'd have to slap Daniel Craig's butt to stay on the air. "I have given everything up there since I was 3 years old." She started crying as she thanked her sons, her former lover and her mother. "I will continue to tell stories," she said. But she hinted that her projects wouldn't be blockbusters. "It will be my writing on the wall. Jodie Foster was here. I still am. I want to be seen, to be understood, deeply, and to be not so very lonely. Thank you, all of you, for the company and here's to the next 50 years."

The Golden Globes is special because it's the only awards show when "the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television," Poehler said. She also joked that they wouldn't be as "edgy" as Ricky Gervais since his punishment was hosting the show several times.
Fey said it was a great year for women in film and television. She and Poehler complimented Lena Dunham for "Girls" but Tina Fey said if HBO was forcing her to do all that nudity, "We will call child services." Katheryn Bigalow also got a shout out for "Zero Dark Thirty" Poehler said she hadn't really been following the controversy but: "When it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron."
Anne Hathaway was recognizes for her role in Les Miserables but Poehler said her uncomfortableness with the camera close-ups would make it difficult for her to do well in porn. Fey said she didn't think Hathaway had plans to do porn. "None of us have PLANS to do porn," Poehler said.
