The Best, Funniest and Most Jaw-dropping Moments of the Night
WHEN TINA & AMY TORE INTO BILL COSBY
Fey and Poehler didn’t hold back with jokes about the comedian (who is facing sexual assault allegations.) “Sleeping Beauty just thought she was getting coffee with Bill Cosby,” said Fey before the hosts continued to joke about the comedian giving pills to women. (And by the way, yes, the crowd laughed).
WHEN PRINCE MADE A SURPRISE APPEARANCE
Jaws came unhinged when Prince showed up to present the award for best original song to Common and John Legend. His hair was big. His clothes were studded. He wore sunglasses. He looked very, well, Prince-y. The only thing that would have made this moment better? Buttless chaps.
WHEN MERYL POSED WITH A DICTATOR
The North Korean general in attendance (played by Margaret Cho) didn’t enjoy the show, but she at least got to pose for a selfie with Into the Woods nominee Streep and get photobombed by Benedict Cumberbatch.
WHEN KEVIN DROPPED AN F-BOMB
The T-word – you know, thanks – only goes so far when expressing extreme gratitude and excitement. So Spacey broke out the big guns: “I can’t f––g believe I won,” he told the crowd when he nabbed honors for House of Cards.
WHEN GEORGE GOT ONE-UPPED BY AMAL
It seemed like there was no way Fey and Poehler would be able to beat their previous year’s jab about his penchant for dating younger women. But they did. After listing off new wife Alamuddin’s impressive accomplishments, Poehler paused before deadpanning, “So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
WHEN JEREMY CHECKED OUT J.LO
We’d like to give an honorary Globe for soldiering this one: While presenting with Renner and deciding who should open the envelope, she offered, “I’ve got nails!” – to which he replied, “You’ve got the globes, too.” Twitter reacted and they weren’t happy.
WHEN JOHN WATCHED FOOTBALL
Getting a Golden Globe wasn’t the only win Legend was focused on. The singer (who nabbed best original song with Common) was also concerned with who was winning the football game.
WHEN BENEDICT SURPRISED JENNIFER
Sure, we imagine this was all scripted, but that didn’t make us enjoy the moment any less. When the Cake nominee needed someone to present with at Sunday’s show, The Imitation Game nominee was quick to volunteer from his spot in the audience, saying, “Wow, I feel like I’ve won a competition.”
