Daniel Day-Lewis, star of Steven Spielberg’s Civil War drama “Lincoln,” won the Golden Globe for best actor in a motion picture drama, while Jessica Chastain, star of Kathryn Bigelow's “Zero Dark Thirty,” won the equivalent award for best actress in a motion picture drama.

Their awards were among the highlights of the 70th Golden Globes Awards show presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Sunday night. The awards honor the most outstanding film and television achievements of each year, as determined by the members of the association.

“Lincoln” stars Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln as he struggles to push the U.S. Constitution's 13th Amendment through Congress to abolish slavery. Day-Lewis delivered a powerful and commanding performance that many have decreed Oscar-worthy. 

Day-Lewis is well-known for his method acting skills, in which he refuses to break character throughout a movie’s production. He previously won a Golden Globe for his performance as Daniel Plainview in “There Will Be Blood.”

“Zero Dark Thirty” stars Chastain as Maya, a CIA operative tasked with obtaining information about al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. During the film, she assembles intelligence on the terrorist’s whereabouts as a manhunt to find bin Laden begins.

This is Chastain’s first Golden Globe win, although she was previously nominated for a best supporting actress award for her performance as Celia Foote in “The Help.”
