Best Actor, Drama: Golden Globe For Film Goes To Daniel Day-Lewis

The Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama was awarded Sunday night in Los Angeles, with Daniel Day-Lewis taking home the honor.

The "Lincoln" star beat out Richard Gere of "Arbitrage," John Hawkes of "The Sessions," Joaquin Phoenix of "The Master," and Denzel Washington of "Flight."

This year's nod was Day-Lewis' seventh nomination. The Method actor won the same award for his turn in 2007's "There Will Be Blood." "Lincoln" is directed by Steven Spielberg and tied "Argo" with the most nominations at the 2013 Globes.

Last year, George Clooney took this category for his turn as Matt King in "The Descendants." Clooney did not go on to win Best Actor at the Oscars -- that honor fell to Jean Dujardin of "The Artist."

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