Ben Affleck continued to put an exclamation point on his Oscar snub, and Les Miserables had a dreamy night, at the 70th annual Golden Globes Sunday at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

Argo director Affleck took home the honors for best director and best motion picture drama just days after he was snubbed without an Academy Award nomination for his direction in the critically-acclaimed movie.

With the win for best director, Affleck defeated a who's who list of Hollywood heavyweights -- Steven Spielberg, Ang Lee, Kathryn Bigelow and Quentin Tarantino. He said in his acceptance speech: "Look, I don't care what the award is. When they put your name next to the names presenter Halle Berry just read off, it's an extraordinary thing in your life.

“These nominees are exceptional talents -- I truly to God never thought I would be in the same breath as them.”

Les Miserables, based on Victor Hugo's novel, collected the honors for best picture musical or comedy, best actor (Hugh Jackman) and best supporting actress (Anne Hathaway) in a banner night.

In her acceptance speech, Hathaway called the Golden Globe statuette a "lovely blunt object that I will forevermore use as a weapon against self-doubt."

Jackman, one of millions currently suffering from a widespread flu epidemic, joked, "I was kicking myself for not getting the flu shot, but it appears that you don't need one. I feel great!"

While Lincoln leads all Oscar nominees with a dozen nods, the Spielberg-directed film only cashed in one award on the night, a best actor win for leading man Daniel Day-Lewis .

"If I had this on a timeshare basis with my wonderful gifted colleagues, I might just hope to keep it for one day of the year, and I'd be happy with that," Day-Lewis, a two-time Oscar winner, said in accepting the award.
