British stars have been honoured at this year's Golden Globes with singer Adele, actors Dame Maggie Smith and Damian Lewis all collecting gongs.

Dame Maggie was the first Briton of the night to win, winning her award for best supporting actress in a TV miniseries for her role as Violet Crawley in ITV's Downton Abbey.

But the veteran actress, who did not attend the ceremony in Los Angeles, missed out on a second gong for best actress in a comedy or musical in her latest film Quartet.

"Argo" won the top prize, best dramatic movie, the Iranian hostage film also earned its director, Ben Affleck, a Globe - just three days after he failed to get an Oscar nomination in the same category.

Homeland star Damian Lewis was the next Brit to make it on the stage and dedicated his win for best actor in a television drama to his mother.

I'd like to dedicate this to my mum, looking down on me bursting with pride telling everyone around her how well her son is doing in acting.

– Damian Lewis

Singer Adele gushed "oh my God" repeatedly as she took to the stage with co-writer Paul Epworth to collect her award for best original song for a motion picture for their theme tune to the James Bond adventure Skyfall.

The London singer dedicated her win to her boyfriend Simon Konecki and her "lovely son."
