The winner for Best Picture, Musical or Comedy at the 2013 Golden Globes was announced Sunday night, with "Les Miserables" besting the competition.

The musical beat out "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Moonrise Kingdom," "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" and "Silver Linings Playbook" for the Hollywood Foreign Press trophy.

Tom Hooper's "Les Mis" was a big pre-broadcast favorite, buoyed on the strength of performances from Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman. Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne and Samantha Barks also star in the musical. Hooper had the actors sing live, a twist in the movie-musical world, where songs are usually recorded before the stars step in front of the camera.

French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius' "The Artist" won this category last year and went on to take Best Picture at the Oscar's as well. Star Jean Dujardin also took home Best Actor at the Academy Awards.

The 2013 Golden Globes were held in Los Angeles, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting. More winners are available in our liveblog at the bottom of this post. Complete coverage of television's winners is available on HuffPost TV.

Full lists of nominees are available the Golden Globes website and in HuffPost's earlier coverage.

The Golden Globes are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which was found during World War II. More about the organization can be found here. The Academy Awards are voted on by members of the film industry.
