The winner of the Golden Globe for Best Director was no other than Ben Affleck, who was not nominated by the Academy for an Oscar in that category, even though Argo, the film he directed, received very good reviews and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Movie.

Delivering a rambling and confessional speech, Jodie Foster, honored for the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement in film, acknowledged she had a female partner when she thanked Cydney Bernard, who she also called out as the co-parent of their children.
Foster said among other things, "There is no way I could ever stand here without acknowledging one of the deepest loves of my life, my heroic co-parent, my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life, my confessor, ski buddy, consigliore, most beloved BFF of 20 years, Cydney Bernard. Thank you, Cyd. I am so proud of our modern family. Our amazing sons, Charlie and Kit, who are my reason to breathe and to evolve, my blood and soul. And boys, in case you didn’t know it, this song, all of this, this song is for you.”
