Tom Hooper's epic musical Les Misérables and Mychael Danna's score for Ang Lee's Life Of Pi are among the musical winners at the Golden Globes.

Last night's Golden Globe Awards from Los Angeles have honoured the musical Les Misérables in multiple categories, while Life Of Pi composer Mychael Danna (pictured) was given the award for Best Original Score.

The Golden Globes, usually seen as a precursor to the Academy Awards, were given to Les Misérables in the following categories: Best Motion Picture (musical or comedy), Best Actor (musical or comedy, for Hugh Jackman) and Best Supporting Actress (musical or comedy, for Anne Hathaway).

Mychael Danna's win for his soundtrack to Ang Lee's Life Of Pi comes after receiving Academy Award nominations for both the score and the film's 'Pi's Lullaby' song on Thursday.

Canadian composer Danna thanked director Ang Lee, as well as his parents for "the gift of music that you gave me." He added: "I felt very, very blessed, even before this, and I speak for the whole cast and crew, to be part of the whole Life Of Pi experience."
