The musical movie adaptation of Les Miserables scooped two trophies for Best Acting Ensemble and Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway), while Philip Seymour Hoffman landed the male equivalent for his part in The Master.

In addition, Daniel Day-Lewis earned the Best Actor prize for his leading role in Lincoln and David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook was named Best Adapted Screenplay.
