Jessica Chastain Wins Best Actress At Golden Globes

Jessica Chastain has won Best Actress, Drama at the 2013 Golden Globes awards.

Chastain, who stars as a CIA analyst hunting for Osama bin Laden in "Zero Dark Thirty," beat Marion Cotillard ("Rust & Bone"), Helen Mirren ("Hitchcock"), Naomi Watts ("The Impossible") and Rachel Weisz ("The Deep Blue Sea") for the honor.

Chastain has sailed through awards season as a favorite in the Best Actress category; on Thursday, Chastain nabbed a nomination for Best Actress from the Academy Awards. It's expected she'll compete with Jennifer Lawrence, nominated in the musical or comedy category at the Golden Globes, for Best Actress at the Oscars.
