On Sunday evening, the greatest entertainers in film and television came together to celebrate the wonderful artistic achievements of the past year at the 71st Annual Golden Globe awards. Obviously, Pacino was too cool to make an appearance.

Once again, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler served as hosts for the evening, which somewhat balances all of the glad-handing and name-dropping that goes on at these things.

Fey and Poehler looked magnificent (again) as they opened up the ceremony with a bunch of jokes about how TV is a lesser art than film (again) and poked fun at George Clooney (again) in their monologue to start the ceremony.

"Gravity is nominated for best picture. It's the story of how George Clooney would rather float off into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age."

BOOM! Roasted.

Fey also fawned over Robert Redford and they called Matt Damon a garbage person. So, you've got that to look forward to.

Jennifer Lawrence Won, Which Means Jennifer Lawrence Got to Give a Speech

Everyone with a pulse is picking up what Jennifer Lawrence is putting down and this speech is The People's Exhibit 13,847. J-Law took home the award for best supporting actress in a film, comedy or musical for her role in David O. Russell's American Hustle. Her speech was gracious and funny and she (again) demonstrated how much she "gets it" with her heartfelt praise of Russell.

Jacqueline Bisset Gave an Insane Acceptance Speech

She won for best supporting actress in a mini-series/TV movie. When she finally reached the stage, she paused for about an eternity and then kind of nervously(?) struggled to thank people. When they tried to play her off, she just kept talking. They had to play her off a second time. Seriously, it was insane.

Breaking Bad Won Stuff

Bryan Cranston won for best actor in a TV drama series and Breaking Bad was named the best TV drama series, so all is right with the world and we don't have to take to the streets and riot.

Someone Actually Let Andy Samberg Give a Speech

The former SNL star and musician behind such classic hits as "I'm on a Boat" and "D*** in a Box" was awarded a Golden Globe for best actor in a tv series, comedy or musical. This means that this goober actually got to address the crowd assembled for the 71st Annual Golden Globes. Brooklyn Nine-Nine also won for best TV series, comedy. Fellow SNL star Seth Myers was lucky enough to be able to present his friend with the award. It went pretty much exactly as you'd expect.

Speaking of SNL, Amy Poehler Won, Too

Amy Poehler won for best actress in a tv series, comedy or musical for her role as Leslie Knope on Parks and Rec. She's been nominated a bunch of times, but never got to take the award home, so this was kind of a big deal. Also, it helped cement the night as a victory for that SNL cast set to takeover network television. Fallon presented with Melissa McCarthy as he's looking to promote his takeover of The Tonight Show. Meyers is set to take over for Fallon. Fey has two comedies premiering on two different networks in the fall and Samberg and Poehler each won Golden Globes as Fey and Poehler hosted (again). So much for that being a weak cast, huh?

They Gave Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie the Wrong Lines on the Teleprompter

Jonah Hill responded wonderfully, confessing to the crowd and folks at home that he had no idea what he was actually supposed to say, but that he definitely wasn't Aaron Eckhart. Someone had to run out a piece of paper with their lines.

Netflix Actually Won Something

While Walter White and Breaking Bad had House of Cards' number all night, the incredible Robin Wright saved the night for Netflix, which was otherwise swept despite a bevy of nominations. Wright won for best actress in a TV drama series for her portrayal of Claire Underwood, the better half to Kevin Spacey's manipulative, twisted Congressman Frank Underwood. Her speech was about as eloquent as you'd imagine it would be.

Diddy Seemed Drunk, No?

Someone let Puff Daddy present two awards and he was all glassy eyed and yelling about "LETTING IT FLOW!" whil accosting the guy who won for best original score. It's a thing that happened. Also, he tried to kiss Bono, but Bono wasn't having any of it. Ironically, host Amy Poehler later kissed Bono before heading to the stage to collect her own Golden Globe.


Alfonso Cuaron Wanted to Give Sandra Bullock Herpes?

Amy Adams Won, Amy Adams Cried

But, as per usual, she was endearing as all hell and looked wonderful (as always).

Leonardo DiCaprio Won Something, for Once

You might have heard of Leonardo DiCaprio. He was that guy in Titanic, way back when. Historically an awards season afterthought, Leo took home hardware for best actor in a motion picture, comedy or musical for his leading turn in Martin Scorsese's (SURPRISE!) Wolf of Wall Street. His speech was typical, if not sweet, and a little offputting because we're not accustomed to seeing Leonardo DiCaprio accept awards for things.

Cate Blanchett Is Still the Classiest

If you didn't think so before, watch her accept the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama for her role in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.

Matthew McConaughey Won for Best Actor

"Alright, alright, alright." That's literally how he began his acceptance speech.

American Hustle Won, But They Didn't Let David O. Russell Speak

The producers accepted the award for best motion picture, comedy or musical, but director David O. Russell didn't get a chance to speak, robbing America of the few seconds of poignant prose and insightful advice he could have offered to, probably, change all of our lives for the better. For shame.

12 Years a Slave Won, Obviously

The magnificent 12 Years a Slave took home the honor of best motion picture, drama. Director Steve McQueen made sure to emphatically thank Brad Pitt just before the telecast ended. See you all at the Oscars.
