The Golden Globes might not be taken super seriously in terms of actual awards, but boy! Are they fun! Tonight we saw the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards hosted by two of the funniest ladies in show business, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler! Before we get to all the winners, let’s talk a little bit about the awards, shall we?
First of all, not enough Tina and Amy! Like, at all! The two were really on top of their game, so I wish we got to hear more of their clever banter. Seriously, Tina Fey’s joke about how Taylor Swift needs to stay single and stay away from Michael J. Fox‘s son killed me! Plus, they both looked so good.
The awards got off to a fun start with one of two wins for Django Unchained. Christoph Waltz took home the prize for Best Supporting Actor–although part of me still wishes it went to Leonardo DiCaprio. Check out the full list of winners and more awards show recap after the jump!
It was pretty easy to predict all the big winners based on other award shows. The TV categories weren’t too shocking with Homeland taking home awards for Best Television Series, Drama, Best Actress in a TV Drama for Claire Danes and Best Actor for Damien Lewis. The biggest surprise came from HBO’s Girls taking home Best Television Series, Comedy and Best Actress in a TV Comedy for Lena Dunham. Also, Lena thanking Chad Lowe made my night! Side note: how uncomfortable did she look walking around in that dress?
Shout out to Maggie Smith for winning Best Supporting Actress again for Downton Abbey. Love her. Love her so much. The movie categories were dominated by Argo and Les Miserable. Argo took home both Best Picture, Drama and Best Director for Ben Affleck, who made sure to have wife Jennifer Garner thank those he forgot.
Les Miserables also did quite well with Anne Hathaway winning Best Supporting Actress, Hugh Jackman winning Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy and the film itself winning Best Picture, Musical or Comedy. And yay Jennifer Lawrence! The beautiful and crazy talented actress took home the award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her fantastic performance in Silver Linings Playbook.
Some other award show highlights include Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig‘s crazy hysterical banter while announcing Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. This is why they get paid the big bucks! Adele‘s speech for winning Best Original Song for “Skyfall” was also awesome. She’s ridiculously funny. I also loved the banter between Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. So awkward, so good!
And last, but certainly not least, we’re all pretty sure Jodie Foster came out tonight while accepting her Cecil B. DeMille award. It was quite the oddball speech, but after 47 years in show business, she can do a little odd. Plus, she was sitting next to Mel Gibson as her date, and you don’t get any odder than that!
