Among the crop of victors at the Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 12 were a noteworthy bunch of Jewish Hollywood types.

Best Screenplay, Motion Picture went to Spike Jonze — born Adam Spiegel — for Her.

Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie is Michael Douglas, who played Liberace in Behind the Candelabra.

Possibly the most controversial of the bunch is Woody Allen, who would have taken home the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement if he had shown up. Diane Keaton accepted on his behalf, and Mia and Ronan Farrow dissed him on Twitter.

Andy Samberg scored twice, winning Best Actor in a TV series, Comedy for his role on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was named Best TV Series, Comedy. If you missed his adorable acceptance speech, check it out by clicking the multimedia icon at the top right of the screen. It was one of the evening’s highlights, we think.
