Michael Douglas took home the award for Best Actor in a Mini-Series or Picture at the Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles last night.

The 69-year-old, who won for his portrayal of Liberace in the HBO biopic "Behind the Candelabra", paid tribute to his co-star Matt Damon, telling him: "The reason you’re not up here is because I had more sequins."

Mr Douglas also took the opportunity to thank his wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones – with whom he has recently reconciled after a separation - and his three children.

He ended his speech: "To Catherine, Carys, Cameron and Dylan – all my love!"

Another winner on the night was Saturday Night Live comedian Andy Samberg.

The 35-year-old won his first Golden Globe - Best Actor in a TV Comedy - for his role as detective Jake Peralta in the newly-launched series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine".

Mr Samberg expressed his shock at winning as he took to the stage. He said: "Oh no! I didn’t prepare anything. It wasn’t going to happen", before paying tribute to his co-stars and wife, singer Joanna Newsom.
