Further, the most attracting part of the night was a surprise appearance by former president Bill Clinton, who came to introduce the biopic.

While receiving the award, Daniel Day Lewis said, “Are you sure there’s room for another ex-president on the stage.”

The movie, which grabbed 12 nominations in the Oscars, was a favourite among critics at the Golden Globes also, but won only one award.

The best actress award in a motion picture drama was given to Jessica Chastain for the Katheryn Bigelow-directed Zero Dark Thirty, a film on the US manhunt of Osama bin Laden.

Jessica Chastain said, “I’ve auditioned and fought and been on the sidelines for years. To be here now, it’s a beautiful moment.”
