After a week that saw Ben Affleck inexplicably overlooked for a Best Director Oscar nomination for his film Argo, the actor/director/producer and his film triumphed at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.

Affleck won the award for Best Director, receiving a rousing stading ovation, while Argo was named the year's Best Picture in the Drama category.

Argo landed seven Academy Award nominations, but none for its director -- almost a sure sign that the film won't be able to match its Best Picture award at next month's Oscars as the two awards almost always go hand-in-hand.

The 70th Annual Golden Globe awards were dominated by Showtime TV series Homeland, which took Best Series, Drama and Best Actor and Actress in a TV drama for its stars Damian Lewis and Claire Danes.

HBO won big as well as new series Girls won two awards, one for star Lena Dunham and the other for Best Series, Musical or Comedy; and Game Change won for Best Miniseries Or Television Film and its leads, Julianne Moore and Ed Harris.

Dunham praised her competitors, including co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who were also nominated in the same category, thanking them for "getting her through middle school" with their comedy.

Fey and Poehler returned to the stage after Dunham's speech with cocktails in their hands explaining that the whole show had just gone downhill. "Congratulations, Lena. Glad we got you through middle school," Fey sarcastically chided the young star.

Jodie Foster was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille award for her career achievements by Robert Downey Jr.; followed by a lengthy speech that left nary a dry eye in the place when she told her mother, currently suffering from dementia, "I love you, I love you, I love you. I hope that if I say this three times, it will magically perfectly enter into your your soul, you were a great mom."

Foster also hinted at retirement and her sexuality, telling the crowd that she had a "declaration that I'm a little nervous about, but, you know, loud and proud... I am... single!"

With that she stressed the importance of privacy in Hollywood.

The prolific actress also said she "may never be up on [the Golden Globes] stage again, on any stage for that matter"; leading many to wonder if she was hinting at retirement.

But according to, Foster clarified her comments backstage, saying she has no plans of wrapping her career yet.
