What a week ... for Ben Affleck.

Not only did he walk away with two Critic's Choice Awards, but the actor and director surprised everyone (even himself), when he nabbed a Golden Globe for Best Director and Best Picture: Drama for "Argo."

“Look, I don’t care what the award is, when they put your name next to the names that [presenter Halle Berry] just read off, it’s an extraordinary thing in your life," he gushed during his acceptance speech. “These nominees are exceptional talents. I truly to God never thought I would be in the same breath as them.”

But Ben's mention of wife Jennifer Garner and their three kids had everyone tearing up. "I want to thank my three kids Violet, Sera and Sam, I love you guys. And I want to thank my wife," he said. "She's the reason I'm standing here. I adore you, I love you so much. Thanks for sitting through this. You're my everything."

Another Golden Globes speech that got viewers and celebrities emotional was Jodie Foster's. The actress came out as gay when she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award, saying, "I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the Stone Age. In those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends, and family, coworkers and then gradually, proudly, to everyone who knew her." You go, Jodie!

Speaking of the Globes, Adele not only made her post-baby body debut, but won an award for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture. She's back!

Also this week, Britney Spears and Jason Trawick called off their wedding after a yearlong engagement. Although they remain friends, numerous reports have surfaced saying Brit was unaware that Jason wanted to split. Poor thing.

Plus, did you know Lindsay Lohan headed back to court and also trashed a NYC hotel? Shocking, right?!
