Pashing Bono. Relationship jabs at George Clooney and Leonardo Di Caprio. Jennifer Lawrence as Amy Poehler. Poking fun at all of Hollywood, including themselves – “We’re hosting for a 2nd time because this is Hollywood & if people like something they keep doing it until people hate it!” With lots of laughs and witty and intelligent jokes – Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did not disappoint as 2nd time Golden Globes hosts!
The pair kept the (long) awards ceremony moving swiftly and created the mood for a fun, don’t take yourself too seriously, awards ceremony.
Check out their hilarious opening monologue.
There weren’t too many surprises last night, with Breaking Bad winning awards for both Best TV Drama and Best Actor for Bryan Cranston, and American Hustle winning the most awards in the Motion Picture category (with the love for Jennifer Lawrence continuing).
The biggest surprise was the highly claimed 12 Years A Slave and Gravity only walking away with 1 award each (but they were the big ones – Best Motion Picture Drama and Best Director).
The biggest surprise of all thought was that Bono gave all members of U2 mic time when they accepted their award for Best Song in a Motion Picture (Ordinary Love – Mandela: The Long Walk To Freedom)!
Tina Fey summed up the night and our hope for next year perfectly “Thank you everyone. This was a beautiful mess we hope to repeat!”
Below is the full list of winners and highlights from their acceptance speeches.

Thank YOU!”

“45 years ago I used to think of the Foreign press as my aunts and uncles and now they’re my nieces and nephews… 1999 I was making Traffic with Steven Sodebergh & one day we were doing a scene & I saw him looking pensive at me & he said, “you ever thought of Liberace?” I said, “No Steve, I really haven’t.” Now the paranoid actor I was I thought I was mincing a little bit in the part I was doing. But low and behold 10 years later I get this incredible gift!”

Tina Fey’s reaction: “Congratulations to my great friend Amy Poehler. I love you and there’s a special place in hell for you!”
Cecil B DeMille Award: Woody Allen
Diane Keaton accepted on his behalf.
“179 of the world’s most captavating women have been in Woody’s films and that’s because they wanted to. They wanted to because Woody’s women can’t be compartmentalized. They’ve struggled, they loved, they fall apart, they dominate, they’re funny, they’re flawed. They are the hallmark of Woody’s work. But what’s even more remarkable is that there is absolutely nothing that links these unforgettable characters that they came from the mind of the mind of Woody Allen!”
“Here’s what Woody said “1 of the nice things about writing or any art is if the thing’s real it just kind of lives. All of the success over it or the rejection – none of that really matters because in the end the thing will survive or not survive on its merits immortality via art is no big deal. Francois Truffaut died. His films live on but that’s not much help to Francois Truffaut. As I have said many times, rather than live on in the hearts and minds of my fellow man, I would rather live on in my apartment!”
“It kind of breaks my heart to think that I have known Woody for such a long time (45 years) but it also fills me with pride & affection & even love. If Woody saw this he would say get the hook and get her off the god damn stage. But I don’t really care because my response to Woody is this – Make New Friends, but keep the old. One is Silver and the other is gold …..”
Best Director, Motion Picture – Alfonso Cuaron Gravity
I’m lucky, because of my thick accent they (cast) do what they think I said not what I actually said! Sandra you are the most amazing collaborator. I want to thank you for not quitting when you thought I said I was going to give you herpes, when I really said I was going to give you an earpiece!”
Best TV Series Comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Best Actor Motion Picture Comedy or Musical – Leonardo Di Caprio Wolf of Wall Street
Finally some love for Leo!
“1st of things to the HFPA, I would never have guessed that I would have won for best actor in a comedy! Congratulations to my fellow comedians here tonight, Christian Bale, the great Joaquin Phoenix, Oscar Isaac and if any young actor wants to follow the filmography of a great artist, take a look at Bruce Dern’s work!”
“First and foremost I have to thank the great Mr Martin Scorsese. Thanks for letting me stalk you to make this movie. I grew up in a generation of actors who revered your work. You influenced everybody in this room. You’re not only an incredible visionary but you put the very fabric of our culture up on our screen. And you are a risk taker and as the history of cinema unfolds you will be regarded as one of the greatest artists of our time! Thank you for your mentorship and for encouraging me to take a risk on this movie.”
Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy American Hustle
“One of the benefits of the motion picture business is that we get to make films about people. My producers and I, we had the privilidge of telling this particular story – about the art of survival, about resillience & about re-invention.”
Best Actress in A Motion Picture – Drama – Cate Blanchett Blue Jasmine
“Well that crept up.A few vodkas under my belt & now here we go… I went to the magical castle with my kids this morn& thought that was weird!”
“I always wondered can people at home hear this music or think that you are suddenly getting faster bc you’re having a panic attack?!”
Best Actor in A Motion Picture Drama – Matthew McConaughey Dallas Buyers Club
“Unexpected but graciously accepted! This story was an underdog. It was turned down 86 times! I’m so glad it got passed on so many times or it wouldn’t have come to me … At a time like this it makes me want to say thank you to my mother, for a real reason. We were growing up, we weren’t movie kids, we weren’t TV kids, we weren’t even media kids. If it was daylight you had to be outside playing. We’d go why mum? Why can’t we just watch 30mins of TV? She goes don’t watch somebody on TV do it for you, you get out there and do it for yourself. Now, all this many years later I’m thinking that’s a pretty good recipe for an actor.”
“This film was never about dying, it was about living. With that I say, just keep!”
Best Motion Picture Drama 12 Years A Slave
Steve McQueen – High praise for all his cast and – “I want to thank my wife Bianca for finding the book …. and Brad Pitt, without you sir this movie would never have been made”
