U2, Jared Leto win big at Golden Globes

Irish rockers U2 won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song tonight, taking home the trophy for their song "Ordinary Love" as featured in 2013 film "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom." This was U2's second Golden Globe for Original Song, having won previously in 2003 for "The Hands That Built America," as featured in "Gangs of New York."

U2 was present at the ceremony in Los Angeles, and stepped up to accept their award, allowing both Bono and The Edge to speak about their love for Nelson Mandela and how the song had been in the making since the 1970s. The band members noted how personal Mandela's fight was, really hitting home with them growing up in war-torn Ireland.

On the lighter side of things, Bono himself caused a social media stir between kissing Meryl Streep on the way by to the podium, and later giving show host Amy Poehler a massage that led to a mini make-out session shortly before she herself took the stage to accept Best Actress in a TV Comedy.

While in town for the weekend, U2 also found the time to play last night at Sean Penn's annual Help Haiti benefit. The charity event featured the band performing live for the first time in almost 4 years, serving to only build more anticipation for their album set to release in April of this year. It is rumored that U2 may be officially announcing details of their album during a Super Bowl commercial.

Music's big wins weren't over yet at the Golden Globes. One of the night's surprise wins was Jared Leto, perhaps more commonly known from band 30 Seconds To Mars. Leto took home the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." Leto said in his acceptance speech that it was "more than an honor" to have so much support after 6 years since his last movie. The actor/singer's more notable roles include starring in "Requiem for a Dream" and smaller roles in "Fight Club" and "American Psycho."
