"Game Change" could win big at the Golden Globes this year. The HBO miniseries about the 2008 election is up for multiple 2013 Golden Globe awards, including Best Miniseries or TV Movie. "Game Change" will go up against "Hatfields & McCoys," "The Girl," "The Hour" and "Political."
Though it's nominated for Best Drama this year, "Downton Abbey" won for Best Miniseries or TV Movie at the 2012 Golden Globes. "How fabulous this is," the show's executive producer Julian Fellows said when accepting the award. "I thank the audience because it's the audience that makes a success."
If the 2013 Golden Globes do prove fruitful for "Game Change," it won't be the first time. At the 2012 Emmys in September, the miniseries and star Julianne Moore both took home gold. "I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down," said, Moore, who played Palin in the HBO movie, while accepting her Emmy.
The recently announced "Game Change" sequel -- currently being penned by the authors of the original book that was translated for HBO -- will follow the 2012 presidential campaign. Time will tell if "Double Down: Game Change 2012" will head to TV screens and a Golden Globe ceremony in the future.

Did Jodie Foster Come Out?
More on Jodie Foster's big night at the Golden Globes:
After being introduced by Robert Downey Jr., Foster coyly said, "While I’m here being all confessional, I just have the sudden urge to say something I’ve never been able to air in public. A declaration that I’m a little nervous about. Not quite as nervous as my publicist, huh, Jennifer? But uh, you know, I’m just going to put it out there. Loud and proud. I’m going to need your support. I am -- single!"

@ Breznican :
Most interesting theory heard at Globes: Argo gets Best Picture Oscar as rest of Academy overcompensates for directors' Affleck snub.

@ AmyKinLA :
Affleck just WON'T say he's upset about the Oscar snub. Says he's a member of the Academy & so are the filmmakers he admires. #GoldenGlobes

She Beat Meryl
Remember when Jennifer Lawrence said "I beat Meryl" and everyone thought she was slamming Meryl Streep and not referencing "First Wives Club."

Some stars didn't make the best-dressed list. From HuffPost Style:
The 2013 Golden Globes took place on Sunday night in Los Angeles, and true to form, brought out the very best in fashion and style. As it happens, they also brought out the worst in red carpet dresses, from misplaced cutouts to heavy fabric to frocks that don't belong at a prestigious awards ceremony.

From the red carpet, some of the Golden Globes best-dressed celebrities. Via HuffPost Style.
The 2013 Golden Globes had us jumping for joy. Not because some of our favorite TV shows and movies won (yay, "Homeland"), but because actresses took style chances on the red carpet this year, making for an interesting awards show (and an amazing best-dressed list).
