Golden Globe 2013 Winners: LIVE Updates On All the Winners and Nominees

If the Oscars are the respected elder statesman of awards season, the Golden Globes are definitely the drunk younger cousin. Though the Hollywood Foreign Press' nominees can occasionally be befuddling — Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, anyone? — their broadcast is almost always more entertaining, both because he show is shorter, snappier, and because of the open bar.

This year, Argo, Lincoln, and Zero Dark Thirty are duking it out for Best Movie — Drama, while Best Movie — Comedy or Musical is likely to go to Les Misérables or Silver Linings Playbook. Though Globe winners don't always translate into Oscar winners, seeing who wins and who gives good speeches can offer a preview for Oscar night, though that ceremony's still over a month away.

But let's be honest: there are more pressing matters at hand. Who will wear the most insane dress? Will any moment at this year's ceremony match George Clooney's extended joke about Michael Fassbender's golf-playing abilities at last year's ceremony? Will the HFPA give Meryl Streep an award for Hope Springs purely to allow her a venue for drunken speech-giving? And most importantly, just how much better will Tina Fey and Amy Poehler be at hosting this gig than Ricky Gervais?

The Golden Globes air this Sunday, January 13, at 8 PM on NBC. Stay tuned for LIVE updates on all the festivities of the evening.
