Watch: 72nd Golden Globes Highlights with Amy Poehler & Tina Fey

Last night brought the 72nd Golden Globes, the first major awards show of the year honoring the best in film and television. And while we're only paying attention to the big screen winners, which included Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel as big winners, the entire show was full of some wonderful moments. There were heartfelt speeches (which were a little rushed towards the end), with many featuring tears (which also made my eyes get a little watery) and one hell of a fantastic (though all too brief) final hosting run for the dynamic duo of Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, who got relatively edgy last night. Watch!
Tina Fey & Amy Poehler kicked things off the right way with a hilarious 10-minute monologue, and the absolute best part is the reaction from the audience when they start riffing on the Bill Cosby controversy:
The first award of the evening rightfully went to J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor in Whiplash:
And later, Patricia Arquette took home Best Supporting Actress for her role in Boyhood:
In between awards, "Saturday Night Live" alums Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig brought laughs:
And there was some solid ribbing going on when George Clooney was give the Cecil B. DeMille Award:
Of course, the superstar took it all in stride when he accepted the award with a fantastic speech:
Another big award went to Richard Linklater for Best Director for Boyhood:
Wes Anderson didn't win Best Director, but he still took the stage when Grand Budapest Hotel won:
Julianne Moore couldn't have been more delighted to win Best Actress in a Drama for Still Alice:
And things got touching when Michael Keaton won Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for Birdman:
Thanks to the folks at NBC for all the videos from the 72nd Golden Globes.
That's it for our favorite moments of the night. Now we're already looking forward to seeing how the nominations for the 87th Academy Awards play out when they're announced January 15th, this Thursday. Will we see the accolades spread out over multiple films or will favorites like Boyhood and Birdman take a big chunk of the major awards? Only time will tell. Stay tuned to all our awards coverage right here. Well?
