BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. —

 "Argo" is in big with the Golden Globes, but not so much with the Academy Awards. "Lincoln" is sitting pretty with the Oscars but was mostly left out in the cold at the Globes.

Sunday's Globes left the Feb. 24 Academy Awards picture still muddled, with the Iran hostage thriller "Argo" winning for best drama and director for Ben Affleck, a prize he already knows he can't win at the Oscars, where he wasn't even nominated.

The night featured former President Bill Clinton getting a standing ovation after introducing "Lincoln" and Jodie Foster coming out without really coming out as this year's winner of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.

Foster joked that celebrities are now expected to reveal they're gay "with a press conference, a fragrance and a prime-time reality show." She declined: "My reality show is so boring."

One thing not so boring this year were hosts — Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, who were given credit for being charming, irreverent and hilarious.

Besides the three wins for "Les Miserables" and two for "Argo," the show was a mixed bag, with awards spreads around a number of films.

Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" came in leading the Globes with seven nominations but won only one award, best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis. "Lincoln" also leads the Oscars with 12 nominations, with Spielberg, Day-Lewis and co-star Sally Field all in the running for possible third Oscars.

"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 said.

Winners of the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards, announced Sunday in Beverly Hills, Calif. are:
