Los Angeles - Sunday's broadcast of the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards received its best ratings in six years, outpacing other award shows such as the Emmys and People's Choice Awards, the US broadcasting company NBC said on Monday.

The three-hour broadcast on NBC was up 28% in the coveted 18 - 49 age group, and spiked 17% in total viewers versus last year's show, according to figures from Nielsen Media Research.

Some 19.7 million Americans tuned in to the show, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, compared to 16.8 million who watched last year when acidic Briton Ricky Gervais was hosting.

The big Golden Globe winners for the evening were musical Les Miserables, which won three awards, and Iran hostage drama Argo, which won best dramatic movie and best director for Ben Affleck.

* If you still have not seen the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, be sure to tune in at 20:30 on Tuesday on M-Net Movies Premiere (channel 103) to catch the final broadcast of the show.
